Play Riff 5 "Last december..." Play Riff 6 Riff 7 (Interlude) There's a shitload of harmonizing here. Basically, it's the same pattern over and over, just higher up each time. It sounds like all of them get repeated each time, with the addition of a new 'higher one'. But I split it into 3 guitars. Pick and choose.
