A crunch guitar explodes into the mix leading us into the chorus section. It comes in on the last bar of the verse, with bIII to IV; straight wide open strums. The chorus chord progression is common in rock music, going: Imin bVI bVII bIII bVII.

Check out the really cool galloping rhythm on the bVII chord, giving the section some movement.

Also be aware when the crunch guitar comes in halfway through verse 2 and the guitar solo, playing the bIII IV progression with the single note riff tacked onto the end.

The crunch guitar also appears in the 2 bar buildup leading into the final chorus. Play the gallop rhythm with the bIII chord, but switch to a palm muted, straight 8th note rhythm for the IV chord.
