The chorus features two guitar parts that all play a big part in making the chorus sound huge. There are 3 choruses in the song, the last of which is doubled with an ending we will look at later in the tutorial that features even more guitars. Here are some key points to help you with the guitars heard in the chorus:

1. Guitar 1 plays the 7 String chords, following the rhythm section and vocals. The chords are the same, F#5, E5, and D5, with varying rhythms. The key is to listen to the vocals!

2. Guitar 2 uses a distorted guitar tone on the bridge pickup, rotating between higher voicings (B/F# - F# major - E) and a wah guitar part going from B to F# the first time, and B to C# the second time. The wah slowly opens up as the last two measures of each chorus play. This is a hybrid of two guitar parts on the recording.
