Two guitars play in semi-unison, both of them digitally combined with their lower octave.
I have simplified them into one guitar part.

Without a digital octave manipulator like the Whammy pedal, it is your best bet to play full 5th chords.

    You took a  white or - chid, and turned it  blue


[Verse 2]

Somethin' better than nothin'
Somethin' better than nothin' is givin' up
We all need to do somethin'
Try (to) keep the truth from showin' up

Note: Although Jack White plays the second chorus the following way live, one could also push the
Whammy pedal forward to the high octave doubling setting, and play the riff from the first chorus.
