GUITAR 1 - CHORUS (1:24-1:45)
E|------------------------|
B|-1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1-| Kele almost plays these notes on the cross rhythm.
G|------------------------| It's hard to hear because it merges with Russell,
D|------------------------| and toward the end of the section I think he does
A|------------------------| move and follow similarly but lower. 
E|------------------------|

GUITAR 2 - Returns to 'LEAD, OVER MAIN RIFF' (1:45-2:37), while Kele plays...

E|---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0-|

G|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-| Kele only plays this; Gordon's bass part does most of
D|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-| the changing you can hear. Unsure whether he plays it
A|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-| this quick, or half time. Hard to hear. Optional top E.
