the last chord before chorus ends
on the final strum, strum the chord 3 times (up, down up) very rapidly to achieve the 
effect in the song.

back to riff I including the 'light' chords played over the top but at full volume this 
(1:58)

after this only the vocals can be heard. play the light chords over the top. (2:14)

just the vocals, bass and drums can be heard now until 2:58 where the chorus parts are 
again.

at 3:13 you can make out another riff in the background with a strange effect to it. 
is how it goes.

A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

(repeat according to song)

after this riff I including the chords over the top are played.
however riff is changed slightly on the third time (3:53) as you probably can hear. it 
like this.

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
