Default The Beatles - She Loves You snare fill

Hi everyone - not sure if this should be in the drum technique section or not.

I've been learning She Loves You by The Beatles, great song and a nice feel but I'm struggling with the two snare fills which come in at 1:03 and 1:42.

To me it sounds like Ringo crashes the hi hat then plays the following on the snare (x=hihat / capital letters=accents)

x lRl lRl lRL

However I've also been told my another drummer that after crashing the hi hat, you miss out the first left hand e.g.

x Rl lRl lRL

What is everyone else hearing/what do you play for this bit? I have searched the forum as I'm sure someone else will have asked this but nothing came up.

Option 2 for me, missing the first snare.

Also I think he hits a crash there to start not the hi-hat

This is a tough one to figure out. I don't really hear a crash there. I really think it's a hi-hat and option 2 for sure though. Just my opinion

Aw baloney, just keep it simple. Accented 16th notes. No crash.

RLRL RLRL RL on the snare with accents on the R's. Starting on the 2.

Similar to the triplet accents in the short tom intro.

Just make sure you bob your head as you play.
You know I tried that bobbing thing one time while I was playing a Beatle song.
It made me dizzy and ill. I don't know how Ringo was able to do that and play drums.

+1...just listen and play what you hear. This is pop-rock not high school orchestra. Treat it like that and you'll sound like my sister on the piano. (Not good)
