Riff #2 begins with vocals on 2nd half of clean tone part:

End: This part is kind of tricky, the chords in parentheses are arpeggiated
(for those of you not familiar with this, it requires strumming through the
notes individually and quickly in a smooth motion). Also, all the chords
that are only open strings are played with upstrokes, this is important to
get the right rhythm and feel of the part.

|---x---x------------------------------------------------------------------------3-------------------|

2nd time through is the same but at the end this progression replaces the ascending octave chords
|---5----------------------------------------------------|
|---7----------------------------------------------------|
|---7----x-----------------------------------------------|
|---7----4-----then slide down into next phrase----------|
|---5----5-----------------------------------------------|
|---5----------------------------------------------------|

The final time through this progression, end with this chord:

|----7----|
|----7----|
|----8----|
|----9----|
|----9----|
|----7----|

The only difference in the 4 measure of the end are the changes in the octave chord progression,
which I'm sure you can hear, and they are:
