The main riff of the tune is featured in the verse sections. It's a repeating riff based off the open D shape (F# chord). You'll alternate between the open D chord and an open E minor 7 shape. The result is not that minor 7 sound though, as the bass line underneath is playing a I, bVII, IV progression with the riff.

Pay attention to the accents of the strums, as this syncopation is what gives the section that rolling feel.
