The final 20 bars of the song feature a harmony guitar extravaganza! Here, two guitars begin playing what sounds like double-stops but is actually each guitarist taking an individual note for the harmony. The harmonies are all diatonic 3rds and 4ths. At bar 8 they abandon the double-stop effect in favor of a harmonized melody that continues to build excitement and show off their chops in tandem. The final 4 bars of the outro-solo feature a cool harmonized whammy bar idea that brings the song to a climatic ending.

Guitar 4 plays the high part and continues to harmonize in diatonic 3rds and 4ths. The solo progresses to a more melodic section at bar 8 through the end of the song. Here they continue to build excitement, finally climaxing on chord tones from the underlying F# power chord while simultaneously playing a series of 'whammy bar scoops'.
