after the noise break when they repeat fig 1, guitar two plays:

then later (over fig 1) he plays:

here's some more tid bits from EVOL Marylin Moore tuning F#F#GGAA lee arpegiates 555555 then thurston uses a slide of some sort from (circa) the 12 fret to the 16th. mostly on the bottom two, but he lets the others bleed in sympathetically. make sure the slide is slanted on the strings so they are all out of tune with each other to get that oscillating effect. the other guitar plays (doubled by the bass)
