The main riff is iconic and can be played with simple power chord shapes. We’re using root/fifth power chord shapes on the low E and A strings, and simply moving that shape up the neck to hit the chord changes. The strumming can be a bit tricky since some of the strums fall between the beats, so be sure to work it out slowly at first!
