The part that guitar 2 will play in the chorus is based on what we're playing in the verses.

And like I mentioned before check out how complimentary the guitar parts are to each other.

Guitar 1 is holding down the steady rhythm, whereas the other one has more open and free role adding lots of color with the licks and little riffs.

One thing to keep in mind with parts like this is that even though it's a bit more open you still need to make sure it's tight and that all the subdivisions are locked in. If the timing is off on a part like this it will end up sounding like the 2nd guitar is just sort of riffing all over guitar 1. You really want to avoid this at all cost so it's not trampling over the other instruments.

Another thing to keep in mind is that this is not a lead part. Even though you're playing licks and riffs it's main focus is adding color and complimenting guitar 1's steady playing.
