The tune starts out with a lone clean guitar arpeggiating the chord progression. This is a common rock chord progression, starting at the I minor then changing to the bVI then bVII chords (in this case: Bm, G, Asus2).

Pick the notes evenly and cleanly, practicing slowly at first if you can't get it clean up to tempo. Note the slight variation on the 4th time through in the 1st verse, and that same variation appears the 2nd and 4th time through in the 2nd verse, adding a little spice and ear candy instead of the riff getting monotonous.
