VERSES: PLAY RHYTHM 1 (Both Guitars). Dave sticks fairly close to the picking pattern but Adrian varies it sligthly. Dave's guitar has a phaser on it and Adrians is chorused. At the end of the verses in place of the Gsus4 chord of RHYTHM 1 slide up and down the bottom E string to cover up turning on the distortion. SAMPLE BASSLINE:
