Guitar 2 - They play this bit live but you can’t here it very well on the recording.

This only takes as long as the main riff played once, play it as many times as the main riff.

===== Solo =====

John Mayer plays the solo in this song; I was surprised because it’s not really his 
of music, but he is such a good guitarist and has made it hard for me to tab it out.
