The Beatles posing around Ringo's drum kitFrom the way Paul McCartney holds his bass guitar, it’s pretty obvious that he’s left handed. Less obvious as a left hander is Ringo Starr. Although Ringo is left handed, he plays the drums as a right hander and his drum kit is set up as such. As a side note, this is the opposite of Micky Dolenz of The Monkees who is right handed but plays with the kit set up for a left hander.

    Hello Sudeep,
    Thanks for the comment. The site is only a bit over 2 months old, so hopefully it will gradually become more like a Beatles encyclopedia as posts are added over time.
    Take care

    Seriously, how come Mickey and Ringo never got together and exchanged drum sets?!
