Rhythm guitar 2 joins guitar 1 here in the bridge, to help support the rhythm a bit. We're playing a pretty sparse part, but again some genius interplay between the 2 guitars.

We start with our D major triad and we'll just give the chord 2 hits on the count of 1 and 3. Then we do the same thing over the A boogie, but in the 2nd bar of the A boogie we play a bit more staccato, also adding the b7 on the D string. After that we do the same walk down as guitar 1 but only giving the chords 2 hits each. We build into the turnaround with quarter notes on the chords, and notice that they are a bit gentler here.

The bridge will actually appear 2 times in the song, and going into it the 2nd time rhythm guitar 2 will play a little pickup melody leading into it, playing A, B, C, and C# then landing on the D chord.
