You can hear the difference if you listen closely to the music. There is a "dit-dah, dit-dah, dit-dat" sound as the main melody sounds.
Okay. I THINK I hear what you're talking about. It blends in REALLY well with the oompah-like melody done by the brass. I had to tinker with the equalizer just to notice it, and I'm still not sure that's the strings and not just remnants of the brass.

Also, thanks for pointing out the other players following the same pattern. Seeing them with the same rhythm makes her actions a lot more understandable.
