Guitar 1 starts it all off with an aggressive riff you'll want to dig right into. It starts on a B barre chord at the 7th position, then moves to open E, then an A barre chord at the 5th position. Keep your strums loose and relaxed, but aggressive, and getting the groove when the drums enter. There are a few bars at the end of the section where we hit the B with a single strum and let it ring out, creating tension leading into the next section.

This progression is revisited in the bridge, but the E and A chords are arpeggiated instead of strummed.
