VERSES:

PLAY RHYTHM 1 (Both Guitars). Dave sticks fairly close to the
picking pattern but Adrian varies it sligthly. Dave's guitar has a
phaser on it and Adrians is chorused.
At the end of the verses in place of the Gsus4 chord of RHYTHM 1
slide up and down the bottom E string to cover up turning on the
distortion.
