In Schaffner's description, "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" was the most instantly popular of "a quartet of more conventionally accessible pop songs [written by Harrison] that many felt were among the finest on the album". Among contemporary reviews, Jann Wenner of Rolling Stone said that "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" was "one of George Harrison's very best songs", and likened it to " Blue Jay Way " in that it "recalls California, the simple Baja California beat, the dreamy words of the Los Angeles haze, the organic pace lapping around every room as if in invisible waves".
Wenner found the lyrics "slightly self-righteous and preaching", representing "a general set of incidents, a message, like a sermon, impersonally directed to everyone", and concluded: "I am willing to bet something substantial that the lead guitarist on this cut is Eric Clapton, yet another involution of the circular logic on which this song [is] so superbly constructed as a musical piece. He's a preacher, man of fire. When his songs speak of 'you', the address is direct. He achieves his character in 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps', which, with Phil Ochs's ' Tape from California ', is the first track I know that succeeds in making magnanimous love serious and touching.

Writing for Mojo in , Ashley Kahn attributed the track's "classic" status to its evocation of "a band falling out of harmony" and, with regard to the enduring musical bond between Harrison and Clapton, its standing as " their song". The version performed by Harrison during his brief set at the Prince's Trust Concert reunited him with Starr and Clapton,  and features an extended coda with the guitars of Harrison and Clapton interweaving.
An edit combining parts of the 14 December and 17 December Tokyo Dome performances of the song was included on Harrison's double album Live in Japan. Harrison also featured the song in the set list for his only other tour as a solo artist, a series of North American concerts over November—December with Ravi Shankar. Harrison participated in the recording, contributing on acoustic guitar and backing vocals.
Rundgren said of his contribution to the multi-artist tribute: "[Before the Beatles], I'd never heard the term 'lead guitarist. Among other cover versions, the song has also been recorded by guitarists such as Marc Ribot , Phish and Charlie Byrd , and on ukulele by Jake Shimabukuro.
