Back to Riff 1, then Riff 2.


Then a variation on Riff 1 where Buzz does lots of bending on the 5th string
around the 10 and 12th frets for 5 bars.

Then Riff 2, after which Buzz plays Riff 1 by himself for a while.

They don't play B5 at all. The 2's in the main riff are 1's, if you will.

The introduction (1--3b) is feedback.
