The breakdown features a single note riff that creates some tension leading back into the verse. Let's check it out up to speed, and check out how the tuning allows multiple strings to play the same notes in unison.

This part adds a minor sound, contrasting with the major single note chorus riff. There are double stops, but unison notes with tuning.

Be specific on timing getting into this part!
