GUITAR II
---------

This is an acoustic guitar capoed at the 2nd fret. A good clue for
figuring this out is the recognizable D-Dsus4-D chord progression,
which happens to be a whole-tone sharp. As usual for capoed guitar
parts, I have given fret numbers relative to the capo and named chords
as if they were being played in standard tuning.
Rhythmn 1a:
     [G]         [D]   [Dsus4]      [D]         [C]            [D]   [Dsus4]      [D]

B-|--2--2--2-----------------|--3-----------2-----2--2--|
F#|--3--3--3-----------------|--------------3-----3--3--|

Rhythmn 1b:
Same as above except that the first two bars are played 3 times
before playing bars 3 & 4 (i.e. 1 2 1 2 1 2 3 4).
Fill 1:
This may not be 100% accurate, but it's pretty close. I find it
easiest to play this part using my thumb and fingers on my right hand
(no pick).

D = Deaden string with right hand
GUITAR III
----------

This acoustic guitar is playing the same chords used in the Riffs.
The open A string is definitely present, which means the guitar is not
capoed. If you want to play this part on guitar II, I would suggest
playing the low A chord using a standard barre shape, 5776xx (these
are actual frets, not relative to the capo). For the rest of the
chords, play what's given below without the open A string.
Rhythmn 2:
     [A]           [E/A]       [A]  [E/A]       [D]           [E/A]       [A]  [E/A]
