Here's a really cool little production idea that adds a bit of rhythmic interest to this fairly straight and strummy tune.

What you want to do is just grab an octave of A on the 7th fret of the D string and on the 10th fret of the B string.

What you're gonna do is simply stay on the A through the verses.

You just give the wah pedal a push when you hit the A and then just make sure that you're staying in time and keep the rhythm going.
A good way of maintaining this is by keeping your right hand moving even when you're not hitting the strings.

And for the tone you want to have a little bit of overdrive on this part but not as loud and full as the chorus, remember that this wah guitar is a background guitar, not meant to be up front because it would get in the way of vocals.
