His sound always served the songs, just enough to make them better, but never enough to eclipse the writing of Lennon or McCartney or even his own tunes.<p><a href="http://www.itunes.com/apps/TheGuitarCollectionGeorgeHarrison" target="_blank">A new app for the iPad</a> showcases Harrison's collection of guitars. It features audio and video recordings of the former Beatle talking about and demonstrating the sound of his instruments.

How do you write a song about something that seems so private yet feels so universal? Not many hours ago, <a href="http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=89535091" target="_blank">Fleet Foxes</a>' Robin Pecknold tweeted that he'd broken up with his longtime girlfriend Olivia (those tweets have since been deleted), and shortly after posted this song on SoundCloud. It's called "Olivia, In a Separate Bed"<p>By all accounts, Pecknold is a pretty private person, but this is a flat-out biographical, in-the-moment song. We see this often.
