First things first; let's break down how to get the signature lick that starts out our track. We are simply moving between two chords, and we're using a distorted guitar tone that is rich with reverb, delay, and chorus.

The delay setting used on this part is crucial as you will hear it through the entire song. You can achieve the delay sound a few different ways pending on the gear you have. If you want to do it in milliseconds, set your delay pedal to 296, or close to 300 if you can't put in the exact time. If you are using a tap tempo delay, you want to tap the tempo in quarter note triplets against the tempo, which for this song is 146. If you can set the rhythm of your tap tempo delay pedal, than set it to quarter note triplets and than tap along with the song. Any of these methods will get you that delay sound.
