Riff #2 begins with vocals on 2nd half of clean tone part:
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------||--------8---7---------8--8--8--8--8---10--10--10---7--7--7--7-7--------------||---9-------------9----9--9--9--9--9----9---9---9----7--7--7--7-7-------------||-----------------------------------------------------------------------------||-----------------------------------------------------------------------------||-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
End: This part is kind of tricky, the chords in parentheses are arpeggiated (for those of you not familiar with this, it requires strumming through the notes individually and quickly in a smooth motion). Also, all the chords that are only open strings are played with upstrokes, this is important to get the right rhythm and feel of the part.
|---x---x------------------------------------------------------------------------3-------------------||---x---x------------x---x---x---x----(x)---x--------(x)---x-------x---x----3------------------------||---x---x---x-------x---x---x---x----(4)--------4---(2)--------2---x---x---4---4---7---9---11--------||---2-----------2----4-------5--------(5)-------------(5)------------5--------5---7---x---x----x-----||---2----------------------------------------------------------------------------5---5---5---7----9--||---x----------------------------------------------------------------------------3---3---------------|
2nd time through is the same but at the end this progression replaces the ascending octave chords|---5----------------------------------------------------||---7----------------------------------------------------||---7----x-----------------------------------------------||---7----4-----then slide down into next phrase----------||---5----5-----------------------------------------------||---5----------------------------------------------------|
The final time through this progression, end with this chord:
|----7----||----7----||----8----||----9----||----9----||----7----|
2nd part of End:
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------3------------------||--------------------------------------------------------------------------------3------------------||---x---x---x-------------------------x---x---x-------------------------------4----2--2-------------||---2---2---2----12---12slide11---2---2---2----11--11slide14---12-----5---4---7---------------------||---2---2---2-------------------------2---2---2-------------------------------5----5---5------------||---x---x---x----10---10slide9-----x---x---x----9----9slide12----10----3----2---2-------------------|
The only difference in the 4 measure of the end are the changes in the octave chord progression, which I'm sure you can hear, and they are:
|---------------------||---------------------||----7---7slide9------||---------------------||----5---5slide7------||---------------------|
