The chorus to our song features both the acoustic, and distorted electric, playing the same arpeggiated melody each time. After the first chorus, we will also have a four barre interlude leading into our second verse. Here's some key points:

1. The chord progression for each is the same every time, playing the same four bar phrase. Emi, D/F#, and G are all clearly defined; however the first and second endings are unison lines. The first moves from an open D to E, then to an open G to A. The second plays a chromatic melody from D, to Eb, to E.

2. The interlude after the first chorus is Emi7 for four barres, with guitar #1 playing a syncopated sixteenth note rhythm with our laid back feel. Guitar #3 sneaks in as well anticipating into this section, playing our Emi9/F# voicing with effects.

3. The last chorus is the same length, but ends with the end of the chromatic melody ringing out into the end of the song. That note is E.
