Gradually get a little more chromatic
Then, gradually go to BLARING NOISE!!

Super Dreamy Outro:
This part is a little weird, but it matches up. I have a Digitech Whammy Pedal that 
the guitar down one octave completely. If you have something like that, that'll do.

Then, just do random harmonics until the end.

This song is a lot different from their other songs. It's so AWHSUM!
