Here we start to wander into 80s territory with a lead that's soaked in flanger and some slapback delay. It's a really nice little lead lick that just adds some nice harmonic value to the power chords that are going on top; it lifts the song out of the verse and sets us up perfectly for the chorus.

This is what you'll be playing for the pre-choruses but there is one simple variation that occurs in the last pre-chorus. You just go up a minor third to G and bend it to an A at the very end of the lick instead of staying on the long bend.

Simple but it's effective because it just lifts us into the chorus a little bit more.
