You need to go and listen to this song again because there's a lot more to it than that.

@TheRootsRadish - There isn't much else to be honest. There's a solo guitar playing licks on the high e and B strings, as well. There's also a bass guitar, of course, and another solo guitar (around 2:24 in the song)
