The chords that harmonically underpin our introduction riff are repeated twice for the intro of our song today. We'll be using the riff for the intro, but it's always smart to understand what is at the root of your playing:

Em A7/C# Em A7

The riff is both syncopated and spare, think about keeping your fingers close to the fingerboard for maximum accuracy. The timing is crucial, you might want to get out the metronome to practice.
