Gtr. II Gtr. II, up to when zack sings "all in the air..." that both bass and guitar stops, is just rake andmessing around with a wah wah. after that part, it keeps more or less the same, until you can hear this:(played like SKA). e|--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|B|--6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-|G|--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-|D|--------------------|A|--------------------|D|--------------------|

then, both guitars join to play again the chorus, which ends on (//= slide up)e|------------|B|--//15fb~~~-|G|------------|D|--//12fb~~~-|A|------------|D|------------|
