The song starts out with a lone guitar quietly playing the verse chord progression. The chord progression is F, Am, and G, using all open position chords. Note the push on the A minor and G chords (playing off the 8th note "ands" instead of on the beat).

Check out all the little pick up fills you can do leading back into that F chord, by hammering on from the open A and D strings to the 2nd fret. There are plenty of variations here, so express yourself and feel the emotion of the song, playing these fills where you want to.

Pay close attention to the dynamic of the arrangement by using softer strums in the quiet parts of the verse, then really getting aggressive by the end of the verses and leading into the choruses.
