The main guitar riff is one of the most fierce and agressive that I've heard!
in other words, that's cruely cool!! In my personal opinion, this is the best
song to play, because it has the best harmonic field for the bass!!! if you 
like to improve or add/change the riffs, just do it, and turn the bass even
more fierce than guitar! This song gives you infinity chances and alternatives
to do that... Ah... it can be played in your 4 string, turning your "E" string
one step down, but you have to rearrange almost all the notes positions... mainly
the ending, to transcript the notes from the "C" string to "G" string... if
you decided to do that... good luck! you'll be on "THE DANCE OF ETERNITY"...
