The verse riff features some palm muting and a repeating single note riff. This is an ascending chord progression : Dm, F, A, Bb (Im, bIII, V, bVII) with a cool repeated single note lick played after each chord change.

Palm mute the chord chugs, then lift off to play the single note line.

The final lick after the Bb chord is different, and is played ensemble with the bass. Note there is a different lick the last time you go to the Bb chord, leading us nicely into the chorus.
