In this song, no guitars are played until almost a minute in. The first thing we're going to look at is the single guitar part that comes in with the drums after the bass enters. This part drops out once the vocals enter, and you will hear it again after our guitar solo later in the song. Here are some key points to help you through it:

1. Guitar #1 enters after our bass intro at :49, and comes in on the "and" of 3 of the last measure playing a sixteenth note rhythm with B minor.

2. B minor will carry over the bar into the first measure, and plays two sixteenth notes followed by G on the "and" of 1. This gives the rhythm a jagged sort of feeling that is felt throughout the entire song.

3. All three chords are playing sixteenth notes.

4. After the guitar solo, we will revisit this same part with the delayed bass being played. We will play a similar part to what we heard in the guitar intro, and follow that with an eighth note rhythm leading into the final round of choruses.
