The tune kicks off with a bluesy lick. It uses a double stop at the 7th position, using the high B and E strings, as well as the open strings themselves. Dig right in and milk those bluesy bends to great effect.

Next is some sparse and bluesy single note riffing that outlines the chord progression (E, D, then back to E). Billy Gibbons is really one of a kind, the way he picks and palm mutes, so pay close attention to the subtleties of his attack.

We end the intro off with the main riff of the tune, an open position Delta blues riff that uses some bluesy bending and open strings.
