Guitar 2 plays muted single note "bubble" phrases throughout the tune, using single note motifs and palm muting. The bubble lines are a stylistic hallmark of R&B guitar playing, and work nicely in this context to give support and flavor.

You're at the 7th position, using notes from the B minor pentatonic scale. I've broken down the part into a consistent framework for you to learn, but realize that the original recording features more improvisation with this part. Learn the consistent part first, then branch out and express yourself, altering the notes and patterns as you feel it.

Note the variation in the outro, altering the notes to follow the chromatic walk up back to the B minor.
