In the chorus we're also going to find a 2nd rhythm guitar that's playing a really interesting part that supports the lead guitar's melody. Here you can really see some of the genius interplay between the guys in the Beatles - while the lead guitar is playing the melody, the 2nd rhythm guitar will play this part. Once you get this under your fingers and get it tight with lead melody it's really fun to play and it sounds cool.

Start out by sliding into an A note on the low E string, then we grab E and A on the A and D string, creating a 4th interval double stop. Then we release the pinky on the D string down to a G while still holding the E on the A string. This is a minor 3rd double stop. We then we move our index finger down a half step and to F# and our middle finger will play D on the A string creating a major 3rd interval. To finish up the riff we hammer-on between C and C# twice just like the lead guitar but an octave lower.

For the C and D chords we just use the same pattern as on A but we leave the tonic out, meaning we start on the 4th interval double stop.
