The tune starts off with a single note riff. It's a repeated melody at the 7th position pedaling against a root note that switches every bar to outline the chord progression (Dm, Bb, F/A, C). End it off with an open low D power chord that rings out for 2 bars, creating the drama that gets released when the band kicks in full.

You'll also play this exact riff in the bridge section. Notice how on each repeat of the riff, the rhythm section changes feels, giving a cool progression to the section that ultimately explodes back into the final chorus.
