During both verses, a second guitar comes in that plays a half step bend that adds a nice dose of dissonance to the verse. This is played with our second guitar, using some vibrato, bending, and a volume swell. Here's a couple key points:

1. During each verse, this guitar sneaks in on beat 2 every other measure. This helps create a call and response type of effect.

2. Using your volume knob or a volume pedal, you simply just alternate between an Ab and A on your high A string moving back and forth. This helps create another layer of dissonant effect during the verse. The delay also helps this.
