The verse opens up wide as you hear the guitar hitting single stroke power chords, leaving plenty of room for the powerful vocal. A second guitar provides a subtle harmony under the progression using octaves. Note how the harmony guitar ascends while the 1st guitar descends with the G and F power chords - another example of drama/tension building. Also of note is the lone lead guitar bending a full step to an A and just hanging, no vibrato, while the drums continue to pound away, yet again adding tension as we hang on it waiting for the vocal to return.
