The band explodes into the verse riff played on a crunch electric guitar. Once again, we are using the low E-string as a pedaling note, and moving notes from the E minor scale on the A string around the neck. Check out that cool syncopation that the whole band is locking into. Keep it tight with the rhythm section and aggressive.

Be mindful of the dynamics of the arrangement. Play more wide open and aggressive at the top of the tune, then reign it in with some palm muting for the verses.
