Thanks for tabbing this!

I'm pretty sure guitar 2 is played with the following pattern -

e|--------------------------|
B|-----3------3----3--------|
G|-----2------2----2--------|
D|0-------------------------|
A|--------------------------|
E|----------3----0----------|

Dave Grohl plays an acoustic version of this at the beginning of Sound City .

He also plays the second part of the verse like this. I found it makes it a little easier to play in my opinion -

e|---------------------|
B|----6-------6-----6--|
G|----5-------5-----0--|
D|-0-------------------|
A|---------------0-----|
E|--------6------------|
