Perhaps the most identifiable moment of the entire song is the main guitar riff, played unaccompanied to begin the song in classic 80s metal fashion.

In the Fallen Angel riff, CC combines palm muting on low strings with ringing double stops and triads on the higher strings; the essence of classic 80s riffing. In this case, the entire riff is in the first position, and features a lot of string skipping, which can take a little time to get used to.
