After the second chorus they go to a rockin' guitar solo. At first this solo sounds like it's played by one guitar with a loud single slapback echo. But at the very last lick of the solo, you can tell that it's two guitars playing together because they end on different notes.

The solo is based off an A minor pentatonic scale which contains the same notes as the C major pentatonic scale. Playing major pentatonic sounds great over a rock ballad like this, because it sounds more "inside" and pretty than playing the bluesy minor scale over the major harmony (C minor pentatonic over C major harmony).
