The progression is A - F#minor - D with passing tones. The effect is a descending line: A, G#, F#, E, D, C#. Guitar one plays muted quarter note power chords with up beat accents on the higher stings and hits the passing ones with the bass.
During the second verse guitar one plays melodically in response to the vocals and ends with a cool A7 pull off riff into the pre-chorus.
The third Verse gets the same treatment as the second verse only up an octave and with a nice high bend at the end.
