The tune starts out with a cool riff using plenty of chords. Guitar 1 is tuned a full step down, so you'll be playing the intro using a combination of open chords and barre chords. This is an iconic chord progression that features plenty of movement. Though the song is in D major, this particular section outlines more of a D minor sound, providing a nice contrast from the rest of the tune.

Once we land on the D chord (open E shape), we settle into a consistent strumming groove that is used throughout the verses.
