(NOTE: To approximate best the tonal range of the bass guitar it's best to play it on the low e string as opposed to open on the D string) Verse 2 (1:14 - 1:44) Guitar 1 Plays Riff 1 2x Guitar 2 Plays Riff 1 2x Verse 2 Lyrics And as our spirit is strong And we carry along All our hopes and our dreams One day will be real And all those mothers that cried Because their little boys died All their tears born of sorrow Will turn for tomorrow Chorus 2 (1:44 - 2:14) Guitar 1 Plays Riff 1 2x Guitar 2 Plays Riff 1 2x Chorus 2 Lyrics And I say Ireland you are free You'll always be You'll always be And I say Ireland you are free You'll always be You'll always be Interlude 2 / Solo (2:14 - 2:44) Guitar 1 Plays Riff 1 2x Guitar 2 Plays Riff 1 2x Guitar 3 Plays Solo 1x Solo

(NOTE: This is actually a combination of a bass solo and an electric guitar solo condensed for one guitar to make playing the section easier. Again, to get a deeper sound to mimic the bass I am setting the fingering for the lower strings for the bass part.)
