The tune starts out with an identifiable riff that sets the vibe of the song. It plays off an E barre chord at the 9th position, and adds some suspensions to the chord (adding the 9 and the 4 for a suspended sound). The approach is aggressive which makes the riff pop right out at you. This particular riff is used throughout the song, and also used against an A and B chord shape.
