Hint:   When trying to work out the intro lick, do an open D chord by barring
the bottom three strings  with your index finger at the second fret  and
fretting the B string at the third fret with your middle finger; this will
leave your  ring  finger free to fret the G string at the fourth fret ; the
lick is based around the notes of the D chord (D,F#, and A) and this
additional note (B) if you maintain the D chord shape the lick should come
together.
