The next verse uses the same basic riffs as the first, GTR I and II playing their 
respective parts. There are some variations, but most are pretty obvious.

The second pre-chorus ends with a harmonized C5 to a Dmaj3 transition:

Drop guitar volumes to get semi-lean tone for the final part of the change.
Chords are probably a little off, but it still sounds good. The key to this part is that 
open G and Gb dissonance in the pedal tone. The Bass is carrying the E-C-G-D melody 
line. Let em. Most bass players don't work hard enough anyway. They just wanna look cool.
