I'm not a musician. But you can ask any famous and non-famous musician, classical or rock and they'll tell you that yes, the Beatles were pretty good musicians, considering they were self-taught (in other words had no formal training) and yet they kept learning ways to improve their techniques. Their producer George Martin introduced them to a lot of musical instruments, styles and sound effects which were very helpful and improved their musicianship. They preferred to play live but with all those screaming fans in '64-'66, they didn't feel anyone could really hear them play, thus they stopped and perfected their techniques live in the studio. Their German fans in Hamburg would tell you that the Beatles were quite good as live performers who jammed while playing long sets during ungodly hours. And with Ringo and Paul still alive amongst us, they continue to be good musicians and sound good considering their age. And John and George certainly were good musicians until their untimely deaths in 1980 and 2001 respectively. There's so much written about this now and is beyond questioning. The only people who would say the Beatles were mediocre are music snobs who don't like the Beatles anyway for whatever reason.

you just don't hear band members talking during a recording anymore...  I love hearing the boys directing each other in the middle of a song.

They're  " Just a band who made it really really big, that's all."

Yes man, of course they were great musicians, Paul is the best bass player of the world, just listen to "Something" or "Old Brown Shoe", is amazing the way he plays it. Look the Rooftop performance and you realize how good guitar's player John was. About George I woud need a whole day to give examples of his quality as a guitar player. What about Ringo?, just let me remember what Phil Collins said "I challenge any drum player of the world, to perform the drum as the way Ringo did it in "A Day In The Life"

Surely - yes. If not talking about super-speed drum- or guitar techniques. AND brilliant sound producing on top of that. Here we are. :)
