That part for GTR.I is the reason why i use Drop D;
so that i can use the open string to ring out whilst
playing the riff. To the right is the chord in standard.

The rest of bridge is quite hard to hear, there are seperate
guitar riffs playing (im sure GTR.II could be playing something
simular to the chorus). I'm also sure that riff is the GTR.I part
(from what i've heard live and maybe on the record).
So i'm sorry that i haven't worked it out just yet.

REPEAT CHORUS until END

Enjoy, cheers (Y)
let me know what you think!
