Once again, there's two guitar parts.

Guitar 1 will be playing a power chord riff. Start on B and then move up to D and finally E. This is what guitar one will do for all of the verses. It's really important that you're tight with rhythm section here, you might even want to mute strings for unwanted noise in between the chords.

Guitar two will come in after two repetitions of guitar 1's power chord riff with a really cool double stop part. It seems like a long riff but we're gonna break it down into four phrases and it'll make more sense.

Start by barring D and F# on the G and B string (this is going to be our base position for this riff). Hit it twice, then down to B, then back again, hit it three times, B again then up to A and F# on the B string.

Then you'll barre D and F# again, then single note E and then back again. We'll call this the first phrase.

The second one starts out the same way but then we go up to G and walk down a half step to F#, then down to D, C#, A, and end on F#.

Next we're simply going to repeat the first phrase.

The last one is similar to the second one, starts the same G, to F# but then instead of repeating the melody of the second phrase we'll simply play D and E.

The second verse is exactly the same as the first, except for one variation that happens in the second phrase. Instead of playing the lick from the first verse were going to do whole step bends on G and A.
