I noticed right around the Help/Rubber Soul days they started using percussion more often, usually with tambourine, maracas or sometimes congas. In songs like Think For Yourself and Wait the tambourine and maracas are quite important. I also find that they have a very unique sounding tambourine that they used in Help, Tomorrow Never Knows, Hey Bulldog it sounds more metallic than normal ones.

In Dear Prudence, is it the tambourine that couples the bass notes in the beginning?

Specially how Ringo plays it in
Help.

 

I like the "pandereta" a lot. (that's the name in Spanish) I haven't noticed it in Paperback Writer though....

I think the tamourine they use in Dear Prudence is one of the normal sounding ones.

In paperback writer you can hear the tambourine on the third beat of almost every bar.

I've always been confused by the percussion in Tell Me What You See, it sounds like there's a washboard or something being used. But according to Joe it is a güiro. Was this the only song that they used this instrument in?

It does sound like a guiro to me, but I guess that is kind of similar to a washboard anyways. I don't think I've heard them play it in any other songs.

Oh goodness, that's more than I thought! a-hard-days-night-paul-11 The one I was thinking of was "A Hard Day's Night", I'm pretty sure, but thanks for the list, Sunii! Off to make a new iTunes playlist - I never get tired of the cowbell, I always need more of it. a-hard-days-night-paul-5

I've been listening to "Tangerine" over and over again for days and days! a-hard-days-night-paul-2
