The track begins with the full instrumentation of the arrangement presenting the background for the first section. This section consists of a basic riff in B that takes advantage of several open strings. The twin leads then begin their dual lines over this first riff as they scream their overdriven melodies in perfect harmony. The second section incorporates a pseudo-modulation to D major as the twin leads switch from a tight harmony of thirds to a wide octave of descending melodic lines. The third and final section features the twin leads cascading down on the G string as the E string is alternately struck. The drum beat in this final section switches from a typical rock pattern to a more tribal rhythm that employs the tom toms in a very dominant manner.
The entire form is repeated and then the bridge is presented. The bridge continues with the tribal tom tom pattern of the final section and then suddenly stops. When the groove starts a few beats later, a fiery guitar solo begins that features some of the faster licks available in Lee's lead guitar tool kit. The piece ends by repeating the first three sections of the track.
This first part of this tune uses the flavor of twin electric leads that use microtones on the blue notes in harmony in order to bring about the intense harmonic flavors that really tickle the inner skull. The raw drum rhythms also express the tribal intensity invoked by this work. This piece is about elevating the primitive elements of rock into more educated realms that use more complex systems of harmonies, yet still retain their tribal essence.
