Guitar 2 appears in the pre-chorus with some higher register augmentation using a capo on the 6th fret. This is a very common technique with Nashville music productions. The goal is to get some cool voicings and ringing open strings to provide an interesting higher register layer in the mix.

We'll rely on the open B and E strings for this part. The part itself is very simple, just single strums outlining the chord progression - until the final lick, which incorporates some cool notes and open strings that add some mystery to the vibe and takes us into the chorus.
