After this part, Guitar 2 cuts out for “...for the future tributes of Thom Sonny Green...”
while Guitar 1 plays this:

D |--3-----3-----7-----7-----|    X1

NOTE: This last riff appears to absent from the studio version, but this is how he plays 
it live.

1st INSTRUMENTAL 1:08-1:27

I recommend playing Guitar 1’s part with your ring finger fretting the G (or in this 
case F#) string while
using your middle and index fingers to fret the notes on the low E (D) string.

2nd VERSE 1:28-1:56

This verse is the same as the first one, except the first bit is sung acapella, so 
Guitar 1 doesn’t come in
until the second time. If you like, you can play just the bass string the first time and 
then add in the
rest the second time like this:

Guitar 1 is the same as the first Instrumental part.
