For the single guitar performance I've chosen the most predominant parts. Keep in mind that there could be several possible paths to choose from when playing a song with multiple guitar parts. Look for efficient ways to connect the sections. For instance you might have to leave off the last note or chord from one section in order to hit the next part square on the beat. Also, consider using an amp with a channel selector foot switch or effect pedal stomp boxes to easily navigate between sounds and tones with your feet. Now let's check out the order of parts I've chosen.

Start off with guitar 1 using a clean tone for the Intro.

Switch to guitar 2 with distortion for Verse 1.

Followed by guitar 3 for Pre-Chorus 1 and Chorus 1.

Switch back to guitar 1 for Interlude #1.

Switch back to guitar 2 for Verse 2.

Then guitar 3 for Pre-Chorus 2 and Chorus 2.

Begin the Guitar Solos with guitar 4, then switch to guitar 5.

The Bridge section has no guitars for 20 bars (guitar 1 will handle this if you choose to do keyboard arranged for guitar).

Guitar 4 handles Interlude #2.

Then switch to guitar 2 for the first 8 bars of Chorus 3.

After these 8 bars pass switch to guitar 4 for the remainder of the song.
