The verse sections feature the chord progression strummed steadily on acoustic guitar. You'll be using E, A, and B power chord shapes here, strumming some steady 8th notes, with the exception of a quick 16th note pickup into the 2nd beat of every bar on the E chord. The rhythm goes straight 8ths on the B and A chords, but you'll accent those on the 1 and the "and-of-2" of each bar.

Note a few variations: The 1st verse has an extra 2 bars of E to accommodate the vocal. And the outro just stays on the E chord for the whole section and throughout the fadeout.
