Guitar 2.
The chords in the verse are bar chords, it sounds alot better using barre chords instead of 
first position chords, however if you cant play bar chords you can make do with those.
You can also use the power chords for each barre chord instead (Palm muted sounds good)
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/y/youth_group/forever_young_tab_ver_7.html ]
C
  Let's dance in style, let's dance for a while
Am
  Heaven can wait we're only watching the skies
G
  Hoping for the best but expecting the worst
Am
  Are you gonna drop the bomb or not.


Guitar 3.
Sometimes this changes slightly buts its hard to hear, so I can't really tab it.

Later Verses:

Guitar 1.
Keeps basic riff but occasionally goes to 5 on the e string on the change over:

Guitar 2.
Keeps playing same chords.

Guitar 3.
Plays the same chords as Guitar 2. on each drum beat. Sounds good one octave higher.
