3 really awesome infographics covering every song by the Beatles in their three 'eras' and who played what.

E is for 'Ergent'.

Wow, that's amazing! Bit hard to see what's what but somebody has clearly taken a lot of time to do this.

Click to enlarge each one.  They're pretty big, but you can re-size them to fit your screen.  Someone should make desktops out of these things.

Wow… that must have taken a long time.

There were so many more instruments in the second and third than in the first!

And I like how they changed the pictures to match their hair/facial hair (and glasses, in John's case).

I tested it out to see if they got the finger-tapping on a matchbox by Ringo for "I'm Looking Through You", but all I can see (and it's damned hard to follow those subtly colored lines when there's a gazillion of them all meshed together like some madman threw a whole pot of angel hair pasta in the air) is "organ" attributed to Ringo on that song.  There seemed to be not even "percussion".

While visually dazzling, on a functional level that graph seems to be suffering from "diminishing returns" the more it has to depict complexity.

I find this funny for some reason.

Why trying to be difficult if you can put it as easy as thatahdn_ringo_09

 

But yeah, I noticed the organ thing too and I didn't even know Ringo played it. For some reason I find that very..weird.

While the organ credit for Ringo on I'm Looking Through You might seem a little odd, the source for it is the sleeve of (UK) Rubber Soul, which credits him with Hammond organ on the track.
