after that part, basically just improv (that's what he does live) the next
section, which consists of various harmonics on the 5th, 7th and 12th
frets. He plays that for awhile, until he goes up to a tremelo picked
section for awhile

more to come later..

Keep repeating that riff, start including the notes on the F# string too.

Eventually he moves into a pattern like this (bottom 5 strings stay the
same, play this on F#):

F#---15--15--15-17--12--12-12-12-12-12--

then:

F#----------------------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------------------|
B--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6--|
B--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6--|
E-----------------------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------------------|

F#----------------------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------------------|
B--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8--|
B--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8--|
E-----------------------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------------------|

F#-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------------------------------------|
B------------------------------------------------------------------| PLAY TWICE
B------------------------------------------------------------------|
E--8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10--|
E--8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10--|

then start droning on a dissonant chord like this:

F#-----
E--13--|
B--12--| change the fingering a bit, just bend a skronky chord around...
B--11--|
E--10--|
E--10--|

this spills out into the final verse...

which is a little different than before... w/ delay:

F#---15---13---17-------15---13---12-------15---13---17----|
E----------------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------------|
E----------------------------------------------------------|
E----------------------------------------------------------|

return to normal verse riff when vocals begin.

quietly pick open strings after last chorus...
