After our second chorus we have a sixteen bridge section which starts like a solo with Guitar #3, but then turns into more of a funky counterpoint section with both Guitar #1 and #3 playing together. In this lesson I am going to cover how to play what Guitar #3 plays using some additional effects, a whammy bar, and our strat.

The first four bars of this section start with some ringing harmonics with some chorus, delay, and some extreme bending of the whammy bar. You want to make sure to "rake" into the harmonics to really get them to come out. The compression really helps with this part, making the harmonics sound squashed and really come through.

After those four bars, you then start in on the counterpoint part which starts by kicking off the chorus pedal. The first four bars alternate between rhythmic hits on the muted strings and some pentatonic melodies, ending this part with some double stops.

The next four bars are in the same fashion, playing a combination of being percussive and melodic. You will end these four bars by switching from F# to A on the B string.

Four the last four bars, you will play many of the same licks and double stops and end with a repetitive that takes us into the last round of choruses.
