Riff 1 - Opening Riff & Verse Riff

I know a lot of people will think this riff is wrong and that the
guitar is repeatedly hitting an "E" type chord throughout the intro,
but if you listen you will notice it is only the bass hitting the
"E" note while the guitar plays the following riff. Then when the
verse starts up the bass follows the guitar line.
