According to Geoff Emerick, best known as the engineer for the albums Revolver, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Beatles (White Album) and Abbey Road, practically nothing you hear in that era was recorded live. A 10-second drum solo by Ringo would be pasted together from many takes of that solo because, usually, Ringo couldn't play it in one take due to his limited abilities. A lead guitar section might be played by Paul, not George, and from several takes, usually because George couldn't play it after 30 takes, and everyone got tired of waiting for him to get it right. It all seems seamless due to the magic abilities of engineers and their equipment much as movies seem seamless but are pasted from parts filmed months apart and glued together.
