Is Good Morning Good Morning undercharted on drums?

Ive always thought of Good Morning Good Morning to be a good song on drums. After playing TB:RB i was even more convinced that Ringo was a beast. Then I really started listening to the record and realized that there is actually double bass in it. Then I heard the Anthology version where you can hear the drums alot more clearly.(Here is a link)

I realized that a big majority of spots are undercharted on expert.

This has all probably been discussed before...but is it undercharted or am I just hearing things?

    Always sounded like double bass to me.

    The Beatles experimented with basically every other combination of instrument effects, I don't see why Ringo wouldn't have tried double bass at least once.

    There is speculation as to whether or not Ringo used a double bass pedal in that song. I guess it's one of those things that Beatles fans will never know, like if Paul is dead or not :)

    im a drummer and would keep it to just 1 pedal but idk about ringo. i would assume he would only use 1 pedal because he only uses 1 pedal in the end. proof for this is the bass drum has the same beat as the hi-hat. you need 1 foot to keep the 2 hi-hat cymbals together so you only have 1 other foot for the bass drum. if he can comfortably use only 1 pedal for the end he'll only use 1 foot for the bass drum i would imagine.

    but i would like to ask since we're on the topic, does anyone know the bass drum part through the 2nd fast beat? i've tried it heaps of times but cant work it out.

    Well for the second fast beat it's a polyrhythm. Like the first fast beat, the hi-hat plays triplet eighth notes, and the snare is on the 2nd and 4th beats. The bass drum plays straight eighth notes. This goes on for the first two measures, and then after that the bass drum plays triplet eighth notes along with the hi-hat.

    Sorry if I explained it weird, or if it's too hard to understand haha. :rolleyes:

    EDIT: Also there is no doubt Ringo used a double bass pedal, because during the outro, there is a 32nd note bass drum roll, which is very fast. (It can be heard better in the above posted Anthology version. )

    It's either a double bass or the effect was later added... but either way it wouldn't be charted.

    Well I can play The End easily on both the game and on real drums with one pedal, but Good Morning Good Morning is harder.

    I always kinda thought that Paul playing a muted sound on his bass guitar could come close to the sound of a bass pedal, like in the beginning of the song (the intro), a lot of those deep percussive bass sounds are (what I believe) to be Paul's bass. So, I think both Ringo and Paul playing in the outro could sound like a double bass -- just my theory

    Ok........

    While the subject is up, it sounds like a double bass pedal, but maybe HMX felt it was too fast for an average expert player's foot to keep up with, so they chose to keep it out.

    Yes there's double bass and it's undercharted. Is the answer to my knowledge.

    It could also be that there is an echo effect on the drums, meaning it's overcharted at times.

    I have seen a number of drummers use one foot to hit two pedals at the time, perhaps he has his hi-hat and second bass pedal right next to each other for this

    Ok, just listened to the isolated drum part from the multitracks, and there definitely is a fast bass pedal roll in the outro.
