I know that many Beatles fans can tell, for example, wether it's George or Paul or John playing a guitar solo just by listening to it. I'm a big Beatles fan but can't even always tell if it's Ringo or not playing the drums. PS: I'm only 15 and don't play any instruments, so please don't make it too hard too understand :).
@Only a nowhere girl
I'm much older than you and play the guitar and a bit of percussion... And I can't either.

From @Joe's song page on Carry That Weight , @sgtpepper63:
From Mark Lewisohn's Complete Recording Sessions:
I would look again at your attributions for McCartney lead guitar, using Joe's song pages to see what the consensus is. More than one is wrong. For instance, you give the lead to Paul on Maggie Mae , and again it's George on lead with John and Paul playing acoustics.
It's always worth looking at Joe's carefully researched entries on the main site. Not only because they're based on the best information he can find, but because he always takes on board other opinions and changes his articles if someone has a strong enough argument that he may not have it quite right.
As great as this site is, I personally use beatlesebooks for my main source. It's run by a guy named Dave who is what you might call a 1.5 gen fan (too young to really get into them but old enough to like their music when it was new), although that doesn't matter. The site even lists the instruments, something Joe has yet to get to. the only thing some people may not like about the site is that it uses the US timeline instead of the UK timeline. Still, thanks and I did edit my post. Also, if you don't mind, i'd like to know every one I got wrong.

This is fairly easy: (note that I will only be referring to lead guitar)
Typically very choppy and mainly influenced by Chuck Berry.
Very bluesy, towards the end was very soulful.
Very aggressive, it's sad he didn't get to play as often as he did.
