The chorus in "Welcome to My Life" is the same the first two times you hear it. It features two electric guitars playing some cool rhythms that sound great together. Here are some key points to help you through this section.

1. The chord progression in the chorus comes in on D from the pre-chorus with an anticipated hit (follows the vocals.) From there the progression is: Bmi-G-D-A D II Bm-G-D-A D II Bmi-G-D-A II Emi-D/F#-G

2. The first time through the progression, Guitar 1 plays all chords as eighth notes on beats 1 and 3, with the exception of the last D which plays on "e" of 4 (follows vocals.)

3. Guitar 2 plays a melody on the E and B strings, switching between A and D to A and E on the 10th and 12th frets.

4. The third time through the progression, both guitars play full open chords playing eighth notes on beats 1 and 3, and quarter notes on beats 2 and 4.

5. The ending progression has both guitars playing Emi for three beats as eighth notes, than playing D/F# on the "e" of beat 4. On the downbeat of the next measure, both guitars play an open G chord for one measure.
