Once you've played back through the verse, prechorus, and chorus, the guitar solos 
 This is what to play during those:


During the guitar 1 solo:

Second guitar solo starts.  The bass part is almost the same, but it has a couple of fills:

G-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
D-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
A-----------------|-----------------|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|

play |-----------|
     |-----------|
     |-----------|
     |--2--------| right when all the instruments do their synchonised end thingy.


Quiet interlude part.

The guy sings:
"Don't tell me you love me."

When the cymbal plays that tiny bit shortly thereafter, I like to play a harmonic at the 
fret on the E string.

Then, "Don't tell me you love me."

The play basically the same thing with a more dynamic rhythm, similar to this:
