I've been on the internet hearing rumors that Ringo played some guitar in his days so I thought I'd take a look:

I know there's more but that was the most interesting of all of them. Not sure if that's before or after (or during 😀 ) the beatles. Please, if you find any, post them here.

Some weird guitars the beatles used, One's a 1966 Vox Kensington, a 12 String Strat (?), and a different Hofner. Maybe Ringo messed around on one of them:

What model is the one that looks like it belongs in a Salvador Dalí painting?

Probably the one with barbed wire strings!

Mr. Big, have you ever heard Ringo's "Early 1970"?:

     I play guitar, A - D - E,

     I don't play bass 'cause it's too hard for me,

     I play piano if it's in C!

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

Actually, that's where I got the idea from. Since he made that song he's learned more guitar from George and Paul.

I read (or heard [or saw on Anthology {or something like that}]) that he only knew three chords as well... and a little piano. That's how he wrote Don't Pass Me By. a-hard-days-night-ringo-9How proud of little Rich we are!

This is a wow revelation! But it only makes sense. Being with other people that played guitar he probably wanted to expand his horizons to something other than percussion.

When I went to see him in concert, he played come guitar and piano. Even in the program, it shows him on the guitar in a pic.

I salute the lady who screamed "I love you Paul!" at a tribute band's concert.

I always thought Ringo was left handed, but in all the pictures i've seen of him playing guitar he's playing like a right handed person would.

Ringo is completely ambidextrous, ie. can use either hand.

Kinda like me shooting pool. I'm right handed but can only shoot pool left handed.

A few days ago I just discovered that I feel more comfortable playing guitar with my left hand, and I'm right handed. a-hard-days-night-ringo-13
