Notes.
1. An early demo of the song exists and clearly reveals the 'Open E' tuning. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qeMnRVHZf0
2. Regarding the song's square-dance theme, [Leng] suggests that folk dancing's cycle of about-turns and to-and-fro movement reminded Harrison of the Beatles' "seemingly endless, and pointless, legal orbits around one another" in the early 70's.
