[Bars 1-13] We start out by strumming a basic open D chord, which makes sense as this is the key of the track. Playing triplets at 200bpm can be a little tricky, so make sure you’ve got a solid plan for your strumming in place. Once the band has joined in we settle down from bar 6 to a lightly palm muted bit of riffing, reminiscent of old school blues and rock ‘n’ roll riffs, with an added chromatic approach chord (C#5) leading up to the D5. I recommend sticking with alternate picking to execute this at speed in a fluent and relaxed manner. At the end of bar 9 we touch upon the D chord again, this time in the position that will be favoured for the rest of the tune as it’s right next to the spot where the preceding riff is played. Then the verse starts, sticking with the palm muted riff, and in bar 13 the first chord-based fill happens; a tasty recurring manoeuvre involving adding the 6th of the A major chord (F#) with your third (or fourth!) finger as well as hammering-on the major third (C#) from the bluesy sounding minor third (C) a semitone below on fret 5 of the third string.
