On repeat of chorus, one guitar plays the chords agian, the other
repeats fill 1.

>From here, the song goes into a two guitar harmony, followed by
another harmony part, then a chordal bridge over..."I've got to
keep running..."  then the solo, which has some overdubbed harmonies
towards the end.  Then comes the verse, prechorus and chorus, then the
chorus again, then the intro riff played faster.  Then the final harmony:

All with a doublet feel.

I don't know the second part of the harmonies, the solo, the solo rhythym
off hand.  I have the book, but it is at home... about as far away as can 
be but still on Earth.  I do know one part to the harmonies in the middle
of the song, and I will try and tab them up later.
