There are only 2 guitar parts here. The first (Gtr1) - Mike Campbell - is a slightly distorted electric, and plays way up the neck generally. Don't be scared by the outro solo - its pretty easy. The second (Gtr2) - I assume this Mr Petty himself - is a clean electric, and consists mostly of open chords. The transcription is taken from the March 94 edition of Guitar School
Have fun!
