Was George Harrisons lead and solo,"lacking" what Joe Perry played also?:):)

It's just a personal preference. I'm not looking for anybody's approval.

I play the verse part with a money beat and 8th notes on the BD whereas they play it in half time. Kramer plays the snare, Ringo kept it on the toms. In the verse, I like to play it by riding on the crash for those 3 measure and after the solo part before the third verse I use 3 barks on the hats rather than a grab of the cymbal on the 1. It's subtle differences, but it just feels better to me, and like I've said, nobody has ever complained.
