First let's break down what happens during the intro of this song. We're in the key of A, but the song starts in the relative minor key of F# minor. The basic harmony of our intro goes F#m - E - D - D and that repeats. Harmonically this is vi - V - IV

We'll be using the top 3 strings of our minor barre chords here, so you have 2 options. One is to hold the full barre chord and only accent the top strings with your right hand. The risk with this is that you end up strumming the full barre-chord.

The other option is to fret each string. That's what I'll demonstrate.
