This isn’t a song, as such… more like a warm-up in the morning. During the ‘Get Back’ sessions Paul was fond of playing Samuel Barber’s classical piece before the others turned up. He played it on the 3rd, 8th and 9th to limber up his fingers.

A small section of the first day’s play was included at the start of the ‘Let It Be’ movie.
