Guitar 2 plays the iconic main riff of the tune. It's all barre chords here: B, D, and E. Outside of the rests in the intro, the strumming rhythm doesn't change for almost the whole tune, giving a hypnotic effect.

Note the more sparse version of the riff right after the solo section, sliding down from the E power chord and resting for the 2nd half of each bar.
