The tune starts out with a single note riff that you'll hear throughout the song. This riff combines the low dropped C string with some notes fretted way up at the 19th and 20th fret (G and Ab, which are the V and bVI notes of C minor). The rhythm uses some cool syncopation to give the riff a start-stop feel, much more interesting than straight 16th notes.
