Here's a look at the acoustic guitar part for Freebird. Acoustic guitar? Yes, that's right. It's a tool that the group and producer used to thicken and build the sound.

Remeber there was a piano part in the introduction of the song, but it dropped out during the intro. The acoustic guitar serves that role now. Just because it's a thickener doesn't mean it's not challenging. Check out the strumming patterns. They are a nice percussive addition to the song.
