First let me show you how to play the classic guitar riff that opens the song. The intro and the verses is in the key of A, and we'll be working off of our one-finger rock 'n' roll A chord.

First you'll play the riff once all by yourself. Then the band will come in with the hits for the 2nd time, and for the 3rd and 4th time through the riff you'll be playing it over the full groove. After that we go to the hits on F, G, and C, which leads into the verse.
