The bridge of "Lifestyles" is mainly studio production stuff with a simple, yet effective guitar melody heard during the second half. You will also hear another guitar playing a single note melody on top of that.

Here are some key points to help you play this beginning section.

Key Points:

1. The guitar tone on the melody guitar is a vintage style distortion that can be achieved using a variety of different pedals. I am using a homemade pedal that achieves this tone, making the distortion sound very thin and lo-fi.

2. The melody focuses around a Db7 chord, and is played twice coming in for the last half of the bridge.

3. The guitar tone for the single string melody is a distorted tone with about half the gain you have been using throughout the rest of the song.

4. This single string part simply plays a specific rhythm on the low Db string, and this part comes in after two bars with the full band.
