This lesson takes a look at the backing guitar for both the bridge and chorus sections of the song.

In the first bridge that's played, a clean sound is used to create ringing, open tones. In the second bridge that comes later, a grittier, distorted sound is used to make it more powerful. The chord voicings are reduced to triads, and the full chords that finish the passage are reduced to a single note line, which is played staccato with a bit of palm muting.

The chorus is a tad unconventional.
