Ringo Starr gets some drumming tips

Ringo Starr has been learning a new instrument.

You might think the man behind the drum kit in The Beatles would have no need for music lessons – but Ringo Starr has been picking up some tips from Indian musician Tina Sugandh.

However, she was giving him lessons on the tabala rather than a normal drum kit.

The multi-talented Sugandh, who also plays the guitar, as well as being an actress and a dancer, told the Manhattan Local Music Examiner that it was an honour to meet the Beatles legend.

"Ringo is so gracious and kind, charming and hysterical, and really is a star - no pun intended," she said.

The pair met through mutual friend Dave Stewart and Sugundh now appears on Starr's new album, Y Not, playing the tabla drum on Peace Dream.

Earlier this month, Starr said that he preferred having a band around him when playing a drum kit.

He told USA Today: "I need to bounce off a bass player, a guitarist, the piano player."
