After our second chorus, we have a bridge section that turns the attention to our effected guitar, guitar #3. This section is nice and sparse, and features our acoustic playing some open chords and guitar #3 playing some haunting melodies and chords. Here's some key points to help out:

1. The bridge is 8 bars long, and you simply play Emi7 four times each ringing for two bars. With our acoustic, make sure to sneak into each chord playing it nice and full with a slight anticipation. Guitar #1 also plays a slight variation on the Emi7 during this section, not playing the high G on the E string.

2. Guitar #3 comes in first over the "e" of 4, playing an open to E string to D on the B string over the second measure. That is followed by F# to G back to F# on beat 3 of the third measure. You play the same melody, from E to D, on the "e" of 3 over the fifth measure as well. You then end it with the Emi9/F# voicing we have been playing throughout the song, anticipating it along with Guitar #1 and letting it ring for the 7th and 8th bars.

3. You will play our Emi7 voicing at the top of the third and fifth measures along with guitar #1 as well, before playing the aforementioned melodies and Emi9/F# to end this section.
