Re: Ringo Starr
I was wondering if there were any Ringo threads anywhere! I love Ringo. He is by far my favorite drummer. He doesn't try to take over a song, but he does give as much backbone to it as it needs. To point out a few of his particularly good tunes.........
I Feel Fine- the drum part on this song is quite complicated, yet he stays steady on through.
Rain- I really like the fills he puts in this song, bouncing around between snare and tom(s)
Helter Skelter- his work on this song sounds almost heavy metal, with the loud, bashing rhythm (and the part at the end where he yells "I've got blisters on my fingers!")
Come Together- I like the parts before the verses where he circles from ride to hi-hat to toms and back again.
Here Comes the Sun- this is a rather complicated drum part that he again did perfectly. I believe the tempos change throughout the song.
Those are it for now. I could go on for a lot longer, but I won't. DON'T BASH RINGO! haha.
