Since this is a 12 bar blues with no real bridge or chorus they use rhythmic hits and variations to keep the arrangement fresh and exciting. During verse two the Eb & D turnaround gets the triple rhythm treatment: simple, yet effective! During Verse 3 & 4 there are hits on the first four Gm7 chords while the drums and percussion keep groovin'. During the fifth and final verse they hit the Gm7 chord on every beat then slide down a fret to F#m7 on "the and of 4" and repeat. The last verse resolves to the C minor instead of G minor; a nice deceptive cadence. Then we get a tasty guitar fill under the vocals "where would you be now", after which the rhythm guitar kicks off the classic hook riff again.
