After a lengthy intro that features the bass, the guitar finally arrives strumming the chord progression with a consistent rhythmic motif. The chord progression here is I, IV, VI, II, using all power chords. Be sure to be steady and aggressive with your 8th note strumming.

Note how the dynamics and layering make the arrangement work. Starting small with just the bass, then adding some acoustic guitar, then later adding an electric guitar with tremolo effect. It really builds the excitement of the tune.

Watch out for a few variations that occur. There are times that you will go to the V power chord instead of the II, and there is also a spot in the second verse where you add an additional strum to your rhythm.
