The verse section has the guitar playing a simple chromatic riff. Starting on the and-of-4, you'll play four 8th notes. You'll strike the chord only twice, then slide up one fret then back down to get the chromatic effect. The sparseness of the riff adds to the mood and tension of the verse section.

Note how much more complex the rhythm section is in this section, relegating the guitar to a less dominant role. The guitar provides a cool texture and ear candy here.
