The verse features a steady rhythm guitar chunking on 8th notes. This is a I, bVI, bVII progression, very common in rock and even pop music. Palm mute your 8th notes to give the rhythm some chunk, opening up on the 'and of 4' to accent the 1st chord of each chord change. Note how the combination of open strum/palm muting spices up the rhythm in the verse.

Play the single note motif at the end of the verse up at the 5th position, using the notes from E minor pentatonic again.
