But, seriously, I have to say this. His drum parts, in the main, are not particularly challenging.
Try.. "I Feel Fine"..it blew me away when I had to learn it a long time ago; I had no idea Ringo could play like that; each limb is syncopated and fast. The pattern is kind of an inverted copy of Ray Charles "What You Say?" Funny thing is I read that a Lennon interview where he said around that time Ray's tune was all the rage, and one of the reasons they hired Ringo over Pete Best was that he was one of the few that had that kind of Latin rythmn down cold..
