The tune starts out with a bluesy intro on acoustic guitar tuned to open G. The tuning offers us the opportunity to play simple voicings over a G chord drone. Start it off with some harmonics up at the 12th fret.

A descending chromatic riff launches into the typical blues shuffle rhythm. The chromatic riff as well as some single-finger motifs are explored here while keeping that shuffle rhythm steady and strong under the vocal.
