.. and so on, while Guitar 2 plays something along these lines: 
       B               
-|------------------------------------------------------- 
-|-------------4----4------4----4---4----4---4----4------ 
-|-------------4----4------4----4---4----4---4----4------ 
-|-------------4h6--4------4h6--4---4h6--4---4h6--4------

Guitar 2 plays this figure during the "chorus": 
 
                 B             E 
-|-------------------------------------------------------11-------------- 
-|-------------------4----4---------------------------9--12--12-----12--- 
-|-------------------4----4------------------9--9h11---------11h13--11--- 
-|-------------------4h6--4---------9--9h11------------------------------ 
-|----------------------------------------------------------------------- 
-|----------------------------------------------------------------------- 
  ... it's gonna be         alright 
 
.. repeated a few times, and then the following turnaround: 
 
    F#7 
-|----------------------------------------------------------- 
-|----------------------------------------------------------- 
-|----------------------------------------------------------- 
-|-------------2----------4----------2----------------------- 
-|--------2h4--------2h4--------2h4-------------2------------ 
-|--2--2----------2----------2----------2--2h4--------------- 
 
 
Now, over the A B G# chords in the last verse, the lead guitar 
plays a screaming figure based on this: 

-|-----------14---- 
-|--14b(16)-------- 
-|----------------- 
-|----------------- 
-|----------------- 
-|----------------- 
 
And over the B & E chords the final time around, the lead guitar 
is rapidly picking in rhythm with the words: 
 
-|--9-------------- 
-|--12b(14)-------- 
-|----------------- 
-|----------------- 
-|----------------- 
-|----------------- 
 
.. up until the climactic end.
 
-|-------------10--9---

-|-------------11--10--
