--------------------------------------------------------------------------- CHORUS 3: The third chorus (measures 67 through 78) contains several overdubbed guitar tracks. With the high level of distortion in the signal it's hard to tell which lick belongs with which track. I've interpreted the lead guitar here and included a separate third chorus for rhythm guitar at the end of the TAB. Hold back a bit at first, build up to a crescendo on the third beat of measure 78, then back off on the fourth beat and segue quietly into the last bridge.
