During the Break the Acoustic just plays around with the g major chord and 0-3-5- on 
e.

The Bridge is annoyyyying to tab, but most of the stuff is inside this scale
*Omar loves the harmonic seventh scale(lowering the 7th note 1/2 step) and adding random 
that doesnt belong in the scale but owell it kicks ass.
This scale is a little like the Harmonic seventh only more complicated.
