The original line-up included Lennon and his schoolmates. A little later, John was introduced to Paul McCartney, who owned the guitar more confidently than all the band members and knew how to tune the instrument. John and Paul became friends and decided to write songs together.
About a year later, Paul's friend George Harrison joined the ensemble. The boy at that time was only 15 years old, but he mastered the guitar well for his age, besides, his parents were not against the band's rehearsals right in the Harrisons' house.
The Beatles are an iconic British rock band from Liverpool: John Lennon (rhythm guitar, harmonica, vocals), Paul McCartney (bass guitar, piano, vocals), George Harrison (lead guitar, vocals), Ringo Starr (drums, vocals).
