While the verses are going on, the rhythm guitar repeats the intro 
parts over and over with slight rhythmic variations.  The 
lead guitar does dozens of variations along the following lines:
Listen closely and hear 1001 ways to play those few notes.

All guitars should should, of course, do the boogie-woogie shuffle 
starting with the A chord:
