The verse beat in “Steady, As She Goes” features a unique, interrupted back-beat where drummer, Patrick Keeler, strikes the snare on beat “2” and the “&” of beat 3. Keeler satisfies beat “4” with an open hi-hat stroke. The rhythm plays perfectly with the electric guitar and bass guitar. The snare drum strokes match the rhythm of the electric guitar, and the bass drum strokes are locked in with the bass guitar. During the choruses and outro, the backbeat returns to the standard “2” and “4” on snare, and Keeler boosts the hardihood with quarter-note, forte crashes.
