the rest of that is the same but not palm-muted.

then the chorus after that is played as the first half of the intro, then played as the 2nd chorus part.
The last chorus is played as the original chorus part.

does that make sense?

oh then before the post chorus it's G-6-that's held, not G-4-. my bad.
D-6- D-4-
A-4- A-2-
