I'm not yet that far into learning the song but I just do it somehow by feel. I don't count beats but just keep time as a feeling. For several years I played professionally, mainly on weekends. At first, it was hard when learning how to play the guitar to keep proper time but after a while, I didn't have to think about it anymore, especially after having learned a song and having played it many times.
I think I get what you're saying, but this doesn't sound loose to me, those two missing beats are strictly followed in both performances throughout the tune, no exceptions. This is a great example of something I've long wondered about. Most pop music never does this. Maybe Zeppelin in a song or two. You mentioned you were learning the song so I wondered how you dealt with it. I don't think I could do it without a lot of practice, it's just so odd to my KT trained ears.
