Guitar 1 - russell Using Slow attack mode.

Use slowest attack settings and let the notes ring in and ring out gently.
not sure if these are the right chords...best i got tho.

Pre chorus with delay and distortion [i use Boss DD3 at 800ms, Feedback pointing roughly "f" and Delay time roughly at "d" on the labels
e------------|B--15~-x6----|G------------|D------------|A------------|E------------|
Chorus guitar 1. Trem picking, clean tone with DD3 Delay settings as above.
e---------------|B---------------|G-10/5/3/2/5/12- trem pick each note in time and repeat as necessaryD---------------|A---------------|E---------------|
Chorus Guitar 2 - Kele - Also trem picking with DD3 Delay as above and DS1 Distortion
e----------------|B----------------|G-14\10/12/14/17- alter the 17 with a 15 as necessaryD----------------|A----------------|E----------------|

e----------------------------------------------------|B----------------------------------------------------|G--------8-------------------------8-----------------|D-12-----8-x8---8-----14----12-----8-x8--8-----5-----|A-12-x8--10-----8-x8--14-x8-12-x8--10----8-x8--5-x8--|E-10------------10----12----10-----------10----3-----|
Bridge - There is another higher pitch section in the back but i cant hear it too well. Also using the delay and trem picking, clean tone. A bit of Wah might help get the effect if used gently.
e---------------------------------------------------------------------|B---------------------------------------------------------------------|G-2-3-5-3-3-5-7-5-5-7-9-7-10-9-9-10-12-10-12-10-10-12-14--/15--/17----|D---------------------------------------------------------------------|A---------------------------------------------------------------------|E---------------------------------------------------------------------|
Then Guitar 2 goes back into Chorus riff and guitar 1 again using DD3, trem picking and distortion..plays...
e-17/18\17\13/17\15/17------|B---------------------------|G---------------------------|D---------------------------|A---------------------------|E---------------------------|
This is played in the background on the record versian. Altho live i think they leave it out?
e-------------0----|B---0---0---0------|G-0---0---0--------| using pure clean tone and maybe a bit of reverb.D------------------|A------------------|E------------------|
Then back into "Lets drive to brighton on the weekend" bit. then outro, played on top of guitar 2 chorus. Live kele uses the hold function on Boss so he can mess around with the delay time nob.
