There are two verses in "Creep," both of which are the same length but feature different guitars. We have just the acoustic in verse #1, and an acoustic and electric in verse #2. Here's some key points to help:

1. Both verses are the same length and chord progression.

2. The first Emi7 and C are played on the downbeat, while the second Emi7 and B7 are played on the & of 1 over the second and fourth measure of each phrase.

3. The acoustic continues the laid back feel during this section, and picks up towards the end leading into the pre-chorus continuing the sixteenth note rhythms.

4. Guitar #2 comes in during the second verse using the D, G, and B strings; playing an Emi7 arpeggio as quarter notes for three measures and then switches to a Gmaj7 arpeggio for the last measure.

5. Over the last four bars, you will play the Emi7 arpeggio over the first bar. Over the second bar you will switch to an Emi9/F# arpeggio using some sixteenth notes, ending the two bar phrase by anticipating into an Emi7 and letting it ring for two bars.
