Heart Full of Soul

Heart Full of Soul” was first released by the English rock group the Yardbirds in 1965. Written by Graham Gouldman, it was the Yardbirds’ first single after Jeff Beck replaced Eric Clapton as lead guitarist. Released only three months after “For Your Love”, “Heart Full of Soul” reached the top ten on the charts in the United Kingdom and the United States.

Something of a blues purist at the time,  Eric Clapton left the Yardbirds in March 1965 because of a perceived shift in musical direction towards “pop” — as evidenced by the recording “For Your Love”. Replacement Jeff Beck’s more eclectic influences led the group to move in more exotic and experimental directions, including “Heart Full of Soul” and the following year’s “Over Under Sideways Down”.

My instrumental arrangement follows the original fairly closely but is one verse shorter. I also played the tune’s signature riff on a baritone guitar.
