A second guitar layer appears in the bridge adding some cool arpeggiation. It starts out of a G triad shape in the 7th position, adding a cool hammer-on/pull-off to the mix, then moving the bass note from G to F. Strum the F triad out of 5th position, then the next bit of arpeggiation happens out of a C/E shape. Once again, move the bass note down to Eb to follow the chord progression.

The arpeggiations provide some nice color and is a nice way to build the arrangement. Note how the first time through the progression, the first arpeggiation outlines G major, while the second time through it outlines G minor - a very cool variation that adds some darkness to the section. End it off with some cool Ebmaj7 and D7 triads.
