After our bridge section, we have a four interlude just like our intro and then we move into our next verse. The first part of the verse is played just like our first verse. The second half brings the band in and you will play the same anticipations but will start back in the downbeat for each repeat as opposed to anticipating it. You will also end this verse with the same hit and eighth note rhythms that we played at the end of our second verse.

You will start off this section with a four bar interlude, strumming lightly through the same changes and rhythms that we played during our intro and first verse.

Once the band is in, you will keep playing those same anticipations but on the repeat will start in on the F on the downbeat as opposed to playing on the & of 4.

This verse will then end the same way as our second, hitting F on the downbeat with the guitar sitting out until the & of 1 of the next measure. There you will come back in with C and play eighth notes into the last chorus.

As I have mentioned before, always try and match the feel of the backing track and the vocals. This is very repetitive chord progression but these sort of things can go a long, long way if you work to play with good dynamics and feel. This song is a great way to practice that.
