The song starts with some clean harmonics then the band launches in with the bluesy main riff of the tune. First, make sure you have your capo set up on the 2nd fret. Play some open chords and note the different character and sound of them. They tend to be brighter the further you move the capo up the neck.

Be sure to play the riff wide open with no palm muting. Work on getting that bluesy bend going on the flat-3 note (G note). Just the slightest pull on the note to give it some movement.
