Next up is our bridge section, with both electric guitars playing along to create a nice spooky sounding section. In this lesson, I am going to focus on Guitar #1 playing a simple melody that revolves around an Emi13 chord that moves between C# (the 13th) and D (the flat 7th.) This guitar part does a really cool job of playing some counterpoint melodies with the bass.

After our second Chorus B section, our heavy electrics are ringing out to bring the song down a bit for our bridge. Once we start in, we have a four measure melody that repeats for the first three bars and then ends with a resolve up to the root of our chord on the high E string. We are simply playing an arpeggio of Emi13.

After the first four bars, you will go into our main melody again playing the arpeggio the exact same way. However, once the last bar comes around and the full band kicks in you will play your open D, G, and B strings with some sixteenth notes to lead into the final chorus.

And that's how you play what Guitar #1 plays during the bridge.
