I like this intro because it's pretty "in your face" and sudden. The main thing to concentrate on with this section is the silence and timing in between the passages.
Notice how in the video I motion the counts with my picking hand? I did that to emphasize how important it is to keep good timing, especially when it's complete silence and you don't have other instruments to reference your timing with.
Also, be sure to slap your fret-hand fingers on the strings during a rest. See how my left hand does that when it's silent? This helps the rhythm sound tight. Always remember that silence plays a large part in your rhythm playing.
