It was funny to watch Phil and Ringo nearly keeping the same beat.

Who is that banging the tambourine? I've performed this song in various ensembles for years and I love it... one of my favorite songs from my favorite Beatle. My three favorite versions are still the one from the Beatles Anthology (original demo), Jeff HEaley's smoking version of it from "Hell to Pay" (I believe Clapton and Harrison are on that version too, though way in the background), and Jake Shimabukuro's STUNNING ukulele version: http://youtube.com/watch?v=O9mEKMz2Pvo&search=while+my+guitar
