The tune starts out with some steady palm muted chugging using power chord shapes. The chords are G, C, E, F, and C. The palm muting adds some drama and suspense to the verse, keeping the dynamic low and heightening the tension.

Note all the variations here, with the 2nd verse building into the loud part on the last bar. The 3rd soft verse ends with just one strum on the C, then a rest, making the loud verse explode in! The 4th soft verse is the breakdown, and there's no guitar in this section.
