No, you're seeing it, it's just that it's hard to verbalize. I was referring to the relationship between bass drum and guitar riff, in every bar of the intro, except maybe right at the beginning, on the 1 (because it's the very start of the song). Notice how the bass drum doesn't play on the 1, right where the guitar riff plays. It's like the drummer is cutting out a hole in the beat, for the guitar riff to lie in.That's the version we base our cover on. Were you referring to the cool little fill he does at the end of the 4th bar or just the general relationship between drums & guitar?
TBH I never thought of the drum track as special, just appropriate and played with nice feel. You're obviously seeing something there that I'm not.
