At the end of the last measure, a drop pedal is used right on the return to the Gm chord. 
I use a DigiTech whammy pedal with the "Down 2 Octaves" and "Chord" settings. After the
pedal is hit the chord also changes to G Major. Let off on the pedal as the tempo picks up
until you are fully back to normal playing G (355433) the whole time).

* This note is not played on the 2nd and 4th time through this riff. It's subtle, but it instead goes
straight up to the F#.

(5) is very subtle. It can be played muted or left out altogether.

...then it's right back into the verse and another chorus.

**On the second chorus** on the second time through the chord progression, instead
of playing the high G rooted on the A string go straight into the Verse A pattern starting
with a G barre on the E string.

Outro:

Rhythm guitar keeps playing riff A while lead guitar pretty much goes nuts in the G minor
pentatonic scale. It's a little lost in the mix so I'm not going to tab it out here. The very end
of the song just sticks on the G barre chord.


Really fun song to play, so enjoy!
