Guitar 2 accents the riff with chord strums throughout the tune. Use power chord shapes with the root on the D string. The A power chord is at the 7th fret, while the E power chord is at the second fret. This is a steady and consistent part, strumming just the and-of-1 and 3rd beat of every bar.

A part like this is common in a modern pop-country production. It's the guitar layer that emphasizes the accents of the main riff.
