Guitar 2 uses some arpeggiations in the chorus that feature some great tension and release. The first part is arpeggiating an A minor triad at the 12th position overtop guitar 1's F and G notes, which provides tension. It resolves when guitar 1 goes to the A chord, and we play the Asus2 arpeggiated lick with it.

This is a common chord progression choice in grunge, when you build the tension using a minor tonality, then release with a switch to major tonality. Also note the tension created by the steady Am triad strum throughout the outro chorus. It contributes significantly to that section just building and building to a final climax!
