There are a couple of interesting things to note about this track.

In the verses, the bass and bass drum are playing a syncopated riff in unison. Unfortunately, it's not very clear in the mix, and I wouldn't be surprised if it's not even noticed until closely scrutinized. However, a basic groove would work just as well.

I should also explain the meter of the bridge section in the middle of the song. It's one bar of 9/16, one bar of 4/4 and one bar of 3/16.

When we played this track live, I sometimes played 32nd's with the bass drums through this section, catching the relevant backbeats with the snare.

There are many ways you could subdivide these measures, so you can experiments with various possibilities.

Hope you enjoy Her Animal!
