Bridge: Play Fill 1 (4x), getting progressively louder

The 3rd chorus is the same as the 2nd, for the rythym guitar. And that's it for the rythym.

Over the last chorus the lead plays something like this. I don't know the exact pattern of notes
but improvise with this and it should work. Listen to the song to get the timing of the lead.
