    The chord sequence was the only part that I thought repeated in a regular spot in the song. I'll listen again

    The guitar riff starting at about 1:08 (later on, he plays it solo for some time, so you can hear exactly what he's doing):

    Not only the verse/opening riff, but the intense musical release when they fall from the verses into the chorus riff and rhythm. Les Binks was a master of musical heavy metal.

    Honey Hush by Foghat or Train Kept a Rollin by Aerosmith (same riff) is a blast.

    In case it hasn't been mentioned already, "Sin's A Good Man's Brother" by Grand Funk Railroad.
    And, let me add another oldie, " Inna-Gadda-Da-Vida " by Iron Butterfly.
    Yeah, I'm an old guy

    You want "heavy"?



    The riff that drops at 3:20 is probably the heaviest thing you'll ever hear.

    Hi.

    Haven't read the whole thread yet, so at the risk of repeating, I offer this.

    Can't believe this hasn't been mentioned yet (at least I didn't see it).
