I've been curious about the drumming in "Someday" by The Strokes for some time now. Are the kick and snare going in double time? Or is the tempo actually that fast and the hi hats are played in half time? What is this style of drumming called? Are there other examples of it? What is the difference between the verse pattern and the chorus pattern? This song has a sort of light, swing feeling to it. Is that because of the drumming or because of the strumming pattern of the rhythm guitar? This song uses great chord progressions, but would not be nearly as good if played with a straight 8th note feel.
