Now we come to the chorus, and guitar one is going to play an octave melody, sticking mostly to the roots of the chords.

Start on B up on the 14th fret, octave on 16th ... move down to A then G. The there's a turnaround lick - D to C#, A to G - you do this twice then we move on to the B, A, G end melody.

So what is that? Coming from A, a full bar of G, then G, F#, D and E.
Then back up to B again, A , a full bar of G, end melody #2. It's essentially the same thing but instead of going to D we go up to A .

Guitar two is going to start by doing quick whole step bends on F# and D. We're keeping the back beat feel for the first half of the chorus, and also notice that the last bend on F# ends with an A up on the B string.

Then we move on to an octave part to compliment guitar 1. Start down on B, move up to C# and then the first time through, double guitar one.
The second time is different; start on B again, move up to A on the 12th fret, down one whole step to G, F#, then E and back F# and end on a long D.

Then we go back into the re-intro.
