There's a simple synth riff that happens in the chorus section, and we've adapted the part for guitar. This single note melody outlines the chord changes in the main riff, so when it occurs in the chorus, it does a great job of building the arrangement and adding more ear candy.

Play the part aggressively, and really dig into the notes. Add a nice whammy bar dive at the end of the phrase to give the part some life and color.

Note the addition of the octave shots in the outro, once again building the arrangement.
