After recorder stops, Guitar 1 stays on that D and adds a C and a G. Guitar 2 jumps around a Dsus2 also:

*8 repeats 4 times, the fourth time without the last 2 Gs.
The song ends in a dreamy riff not too unlike *4. I haven't tabbed it out but I know it starts out like *4 with a few extra notes and variations. I hope this helps out. Thanks...
