Verse 2 (verse-riff twice...what else?) Pre-chorus Chorus (end chorus with:)
---------------------------9-----5------9--9--5--5---7--9--3--5------7-----3--Solo Rythm - Guitar I or II
E5VII - 2 B5 - 4 strum A5 - 4 strum B5 - 4 strum A5 - 2 strum G5 - 1 A5 - 1 F#5 - 4 G5 - 2 E5 - 1 F#5 - 1 G5 - 2 E5 - 2 A5 - 2 F#5 - 2 (Numbers after the chord indicates the amount of bars the chord durates. One bar is four beats. I.e. E5 - 2 mean play an E5-chord (power of course) and maintain it for eight beats. Simple as hell.) Solo (pick really fast up to I) I

Actual Solo: (Well I'd say it's more of a high pitch guitar version of Rob's vocals.)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------11-12-11----11--------------------------------------------14-------12---11-12-14-11-12p11p9----------------------14--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Repeat this once but with the pull-off-trio twice (-12p11p9-12p11p9-)
(One note every 2nd beat) more to the right -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------10-----------------------11-------------------------------------------------------11---11-12-11-------11--11----11-9-12-11-9-9-12-11-9-9-12-11-11-9-12-11-9-9-12-11-9------------------11-------------------------------------------------------------------------------13-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Maintain last note until singing stops.
Rythm Guitar (K.K. I think) plays plays Riff 2 four times and lead guitar joins on 2nd time (drums 'n bass enters 3rd time). When this done end with a long-maintained B5 power chord and the tempo drops to guess what.) Spoken part: Play intro riff eight times. After spoken part: Riff 1 (Tempo rise of course) Then comes Pre-Chorus riff TWICE And finally: Chorus riff many times before fading away.
