The tune kicks off with an clean upper register riff arpeggiating chord tones. The riff starts with a slide from a lower D note up to the F# note, and alternates between and A and B note, providing a simple but very cool, iconic melody. Dig into your picking, but also add the light palm muting that keeps the part under control. In the final bar, start to open up from the muted sound and build the dynamic into the next section. This intro riff also establishes the triplet pulse of the song.
