5:02
Here you start by mashing E, then transition into playing a new part while still hitting
a bunch of the other strings and overall playing messily

5:07
Constant fast strumming this time. Again, slide to each new note

Tremolo again, but faster and more intense than before

No more tremolo
Use a ton of delay or effects of some kind here
I'm fairly certain this is how this part starts, but after a while it might 
just be the 17 and 16 notes, ending on the 15, or just some other improvisation - there is so much noise
here it is hard to tell. I personally like to play this repeatedly with a lot of delay so it overlaps.
