Now for the Chorus (here we come, reach for your gun...), play Riff C three     
times and finish with Riff C.2 on the fourth, then finish the process by 
doing the same thing again.  
  
When going back to the 2nd verse, play Riff D/Riff D.2 once, then play Riff E  
and go back to the verses.
  
If you are going into the SOLO after the verses at this point instead, then     
play Riff H before solo.
