*I'm not 100% sure that this is the correct chord, C# also sounds good
  here.. try both and decide which you like
**I switched to the different voicing of the chord here because
  I feel it helps emphasize the lyrics in the last line, the
  difference is small but slightly noticeable. This chord also is not
  necessarily an F#, it could also be a B :)

Riff B:   w/heavy dist
