In the start of the song you can hear a bell like 
sound. Try to recreate this with harmonics on the 
12th fret of the high e-string. 
(Kjartan uses a sort of device to make this sound)

Throughout the whole song the same chords go over 
and over, except in the climax.

Play these chords for the basic progression:

  E5  B5  C#5  A5
At first he plays some harmonics over the 7th fret, 

and all over the guitar (with his bow). 

Just improvise like he does. The intro will 

then be like this:

(on the low e-string, as usual)

 | E- | -14- | -15- | -14- | -12- |  two times

except the second time, it ends on a B note  | -19- | 

The timing is easy to catch, listening to the record.

E5           B5     C#5   A5      
?g er kominn aftur (? n?) inn ? ?ig 
     E5               B5    C#5           A5
