Bridge (Synth Part)

This Part is a little bit tricky. The first 3 notes of one arpeggio (consisting
of 7 notes) are 3 sixteenth triplets. The next 4 are 4 thirty-second notes.
Just try to keep the first and the last note of an arpeggio in time.

The ","-Signs shall show the sixteenth beats.

Here's a suggestion to play only the chords of the bridge in case the arpeggios are too hard:
(notes in brackets are optional, it's easier to play without them, but sounds better with them)
