This riff is also under the instrumental solos and offers a fresh change of harmonic flavor by switching to the E Dorian Mode. This minor mode is given more spice with a great rhythmic syncopation. It's played on the upbeats and each phrase is concluded with a turn back to the downbeat. It's trickier than it sounds, so spend plenty of time counting with the recording before attempting to play it. As with many of the simple ideas in rock music, it is all about the rhythm.
