The tune kicks right in with a powerful main riff using double stops. You will also be adding some cool flair to the riff by incorporating slides and vibrato. There's also a killer improvised lick right in the middle of the riff, utilizing some sliding and open strings. This is a fine example of a simple chord progression that is made much more interesting by the riff and techniques.

This riff is also played in the interlude, and it features more improvised licks. Also note the odd number of beats at the end of each section: 7 beats to the verse and 3 beats into the guitar solo.
