So i stumbled across a youtube vid of heart and it made me want to bang out baracuda ....this looks like such a simple song...but i have stupid question

whats the riff pattern....does it contain upstrokes? having trouble palm muting the first the low E, A, D while trying to do an upstrum
I always thought it was triplets like : D DUD DUD DUD on the E string
