Now we're gonna take a look at what Guitar #2 plays during our verses. While the playing is a bit sparse, these parts really lift the arrangement and the different sections throughout the verses.

For the first verse, Guitar #2 is relatively sparse. You start off by letting the D chord ring into the first verse. You don't enter again until it's time to double the turnaround melody that Guitar #1 plays.

You will play this same part twice. Then for the second verse, you will play the same rhythm you played with Guitar #1 during the first verse but with just power chords using Dropped D. You will also play the same turn around melody as you did in the first verse, combined with the rhythm.

Changing up the parts for the verses really helps the song flow nicely, with just subtle changes in the guitar parts helping build the arrangement.
