Alright, let's jump into the intro. Remember this song is in drop D tuning, so before you get started make sure to drop that low E string down a whole step if you haven't already.

As he is walking down this progression he either always strikes the same bass note again on the low D string, or lets off of the chord for just a second to play the low D string open. Listen closely for this.

The arpeggiated picking alternates each bar. Think of each 2 bars as a phrase, with the first bar both ascending and descending, and the 2nd bar ascending only.

The sound that powers this tune are alternative rock style progressions with arpeggio style picking. The Guitar Tricks rock course can help you dig deeper into riffs like this so make sure to check it out.
