Yes.. I used to drive myself crazy trying to figure out was going on there.. I was torn between ;I just watched one and Seraphine was doing two 16ths on the snare followed by just open hi hat and kick on the back beat.
The original recording has two complete drum tracks. One playing straight, with steady 8th notes pumping on the bass drum, and the other track playing busier stuff on the snare and all the fills near the end. The intro has the guitar track pretty loud and that's why you can't really hear what the drums are doing.1 2 3 da4. What is the voicing on "da4"? It almost sounds like something is double-tracked.
damn ....and I thought it had to do with the Chicago riot of 1968.I never knew what this song title meant until recently. It's a time. 25 to four. 25 or(2)6 to four. That's the time in the morning that the inspiration for this song came about. "Waiting for the break of day...."
