 The next part is kind of like the original riff but in halftime.

-|----------------------------|----------|--3~-----------|----------|---------|
 | riff B ------------------> |          | riff C ----->----------------------|

 Now these two parts repeat over and over again to finally stop on a low D.
 The riffs changes a bit every time.
 After that comes this really cool bass groove by Mr Levin.

 Now comes a wierd part. It's using a mixolydian scale with b6,b9.
