We also have a second guitar playing during our choruses, playing a "bumblebee" type of sound using some half-step bends and some open strings. Here's some key points to help:

1. During each chorus you will play a dissonant melody that bends from a G# on the F string up a half step to match open A string. This effect is played pretty loosely on the recording, and has delay on it as well. Just make sure to articulate the dissonance while also keeping it lower in the mix.

2. This creates a "bumblebee" like sound that adds a really cool effect to the chorus.

3. You will continue to play this part at the end of the song as well, letting the two dissonant notes ring together.
