The pre-chorus of our song happens three times. Guitars #1 and #2 play all three times, while guitar #3 comes in the second and third time. Here's some key points to help you through it:

1. The chord progression is the same for all three pre-choruses.

2. Guitar #1 strums the open chords, each with the same laid back feel. Every other bar the chord is played on the "and" of 1.

3. Guitar #2 plays the same open chords, but more sparse. The Emi7 is strummed once and left to ring for two bars each time it's played.

4. Over the second and third pre-choruses, guitar #3 comes in and plays on beat 3 of the 7th measure; playing an Emi9 arpeggiated melody. It's the same melody and tone for both the second and third pre-choruses.
