The tune kicks off with a cool groove on an E7 chord. The guitar uses a voicing that is essentially an E power chord with an added D note (the flat 7). This part is not up front, but critical to the groove and support of the whole band, so it is important to lock in with the rhythm section.

This is a 2 bar figure that has some cool 8th note syncopations that sink right into the groove. Notice the quick slides off the D note that add some character to the part, and poke through the mix after the vocal phrases.
