Fill up one measure with E and one with F#7add4 in 4/4 rhytm,
go back once to the arpeggio. Then do the second riff of the intro twice and
go back to the verses etc. etc.

Solo:
-----

Right before the solo in the chorus, instead of returning to the chorus
arpeggiations, play the G# sus 4 for one more measure, then go ahead with:

Hold the last note almost indefinately. A little (or actually, a bit more)
feedback wouldn't hurt. It's the incredibly long magic note.

After the solo, play the chorus arpeggiation once more, and get back into the
chorus. The final chord of the song is the G#sus4 again.
