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.
I think it's just awe inspiring that you aren't seeking anybodies approval.It's equally astounding that no ones has ever complained.Tacit approval can be inspiring

So because Ringos performance is DIFFERENT than yours,his was some how LACKING? Not just different....and totally original?

So no credit for actually coming up with the drum parts to an original song,and having to please three of the biggest celebrity musicians in the world,not to mention some of the most critical perfectionists in McCartney and producer,George Martin.

The ground work was already done.That's the hard part.
