Now let's check out what the electric guitar plays during the verses. This part is a classic example in the art of playing a specific, recognizable part, while at the same time being loose and jammy with the part so it doesn't sound too clean and predictable.

There are many places, where you can hear that something happens, but it's so buried in the mix that it's hard to hear. My guess is that they turned down the volume of certain phrases that got in the way of the vocals. I'll show you what I think he's playing there, and then you just have to pick it really softly, so you don't step on the vocals since no one is adjusting your volume in real time.

The basic harmony in the verse is once again F#m E D D. For this electric part we'll be in the lower strings of our F# minor pentatonic pattern, which is the same as A major pentatonic, and we'll mostly follow the harmony of the chords with these lines.
