The final verse features two acoustic guitars, and we are going to work it out so you can play a mixture of the two. This will include the arpeggiated pattern that you hear played by one acoustic guitar, along with some of the licks you hear played by the other. Here are some key points to help you through it:

1. The chord progression is the same as our previous verses, but what changes is how the acoustic guitar part is played.

2. The acoustic comes in playing a more arpeggiated pattern, and then breaks for two licks that are played by the second acoustic guitar part.

3. The first melody plays high E and B strings at the end of the second measures, and then quickly switches between back to the arpeggiated pattern.

4. The second melody is a descending line at the end of the fourth measure, after which the acoustic switches to the more traditional strumming pattern heard in the other verses.

5. These licks, like the electrics before, are played exclusively in between the vocal phrases. This technique is very common, and this song helps showcase how that type of arranging makes for a great song with lots of cool guitar playing; a great combination!
