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.
