Take a look at this (from Wikipedia):John Lennon double-tracked vocal, acoustic rhythm guitarPaul McCartney harmony vocal, bassGeorge Harrison double-tracked sitarRingo Starr tambourine, maracas, finger cymbals

Beatles_Fanatic;3331928 said:In Maxwell Silver Hammer, you see John playing with them when during the real recording he was recovering from a car accident he had been in. In fact, at one point in the song Paul chuckles because at that moment, John had pulled down his pants and mooned him!!!
TheBeatleHead;3331950 said:Random much?
Leon-Gun;3332524 said:Didn't several people refuted this as a myth and claimed John didn't even go to the recordings? Apparently everyone except Paul himself wasn't too fond of the song.

My guess is they charted tambourine to the blue note (based on the pic of the gameplay).

MarkItFab;3338486 said:Guys: it's a GAME, not a documentary. There are already inaccuracies all through it, from the visuals to the game play. Why would anyone expect that to be any different in this case. It's a song with no or minimal drums, but in order for the GAME to be consistent, it needs to present something for drummers to do on the song. I don't see how much simpler it could be.
tomdabomb12354;3339013 said:What about Because and She's Leaving Homethose songs have nothing that could possibly be charted as drums so they dont have a track but this song has bass drum and tambourine which are percussion instruments therefore :drum track
TheBeatleHead;3340408 said:Like I said before, the problem doesn't lie on the fact that there is a drum chart, but that Ringo is actually playing them.
MarkItFab;3341327 said:So what? It's a game, not a live feed from Abbey Road Studios.
Myself said:Using Within You Without You (Sgt. Pepper) as an example, there is a drum chart, but no Ringo, since the instrument played is a tabla.Using the Love version as an example, you can notice that Ringo only appears on-screen when the drums from Tomorrow Never Knows are played. When they stop and a tabla starts being played, he goes the way of Crystal Pepsi and vanishes.
LeoModesto;3341458 said:It would be preferred to show the entire band over a single member. Everyone knows that Within You Without You is Harrison's thing, but Ringo was involved in the recording of Norgewian Wood. They could probably have animated him holding a tambourine, but considering it's a DLC song, it likely wasn't a priority.Why is George seen playing his Stratocaster in I Am The Walrus?
TheCulprit;3341488 said:I'll wait to pass judgment until I see the actual drum animation. Note that the trailer doesn't show Ringo at all during that song, only the photos.Someone else pointed out that Ringo often places his tambourine above the hi-hat. It would make as much sense as showing George play bass on a regular guitar during Maxwell's Silver Hammer and Golden Slumbers...
