The second half of the bridge features our ongoing main guitar part with a few added surprises. The vocals are king in this section, and the guitars are simply following the call and response of the vocals. We are playing our main guitar part on both guitars, and as the vocals build we will play a few varieties that build into our last choruses nicely. Here are some key points to guide you you through the second 12 bars of the bridge:

1. Guitar 1 plays the main guitar part heard throughout the song for the first four bars, and then breaks up on the F# minor chord for the remainder of the bridge following the vocals and hits.

2. Guitar 2 plays the same part again for the first four bars. After that, both guitars play the same variation on the main guitar part until the last two bars. Guitar 2 accents the hits with the full band on beats 1 and 3 on the first measure, and than plays on all four beats of the last measure, leading us into the last chorus.

3. Guitar 1 plays these hits as well on the last bar of the bridge.
