The intro is just pulling off A to G to E on the high E string. The verse is just E5, F#5, G up and down. If you listen to the live version of A Long Days' Night it becomes clearer.

In the pre-chorus part as well it's actually Buck working the twang stick - he was playing a Floyd-equipped Strat in those days.

I'm sure he plays the intro on the B string. E D B (frets 5 3 0)
