when playing the 2 on the G-string, lift your finger off after so it makes muted sound 
after kind of.

e|-------|
B|-------|
G|-2-----|
D|-------|
A|---0---|
E|-------|

then:

e|-------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------|

D|--------------------------------------------2----|
A|------------0h5--0h3--0~-------------0h3--5---0~-|
E|-------------------------------------------------|

the fill used by the second guitar alternates throughout the song. The "beep beeps" are 
by switching between a muted pickup and a full volume pickup,

or by bridge/neck switching, a la Voodoo Child (slight Return)

e|--8-----|      e|--15---|
B|--10b---|      B|--17b--|
