The third part of the riff opens up before building to a climax. This part mixes strums that are held out for a whole bar with quarter note strums, creating all sorts of tension that builds to a final climax. Use the same tight, aggressive approach you’ve been using all along.

Putting all three parts of the riff together is a ton of fun to play and sounds really cool. Note that the entire 3-part riff is played twice throughout the tune at a high dynamic, while the organ takes over in-between at a tension-filled low dynamic. The dramatic shift in dynamics as well as the call and response type melodic phrasing really make this track shine!
