The bridge of our song is 24 bars long, and we are going to break it down into two lessons. The first 12 bar lessons are fairly easy and feature the main guitar part played with some palm muting. The beginning of the bridge features some cool effects from the second guitar, and the last 4 bars features both guitars playing in unison. Here are some key points to help you with the first part of the bridge:

1. Guitar 1 plays the same main guitar part throughout the entire first half of the bridge, played with palm muting during the first 8 bars. The last 4 bars it plays the same part opened up.

2. Guitar 2 enters the bridge with a sustaining F# minor chord on the A and D strings, and then plays some volume swells before the vocals enter. This guitar then plays along with the main guitar for the last four bars.

3. The vocals enter the bridge after 4 bars, and the band builds with the vocal melodies.
