After playing that part for a bit, Brian comes in with "None of you can make the grade" and under this you play the pre-chorus part.

[Pre-Chorus]

After doing that part a few times round we come into the chorus.

Repeat the chorus again and go back into the verse.  After doing the verse, pay the pre-chorus and go back into the chorus and play it twice.  After all this, Brian starts playing some harmonics and under this you simply play the pre chorus twice.  You again go into the chorus, play it round twice and play under Brians harmonics with the pre-chorus again. Finally, just before Brian finishes the song with the harmonics by himself, you play;

|--11-let-ring......-----------------------------11-let-ring.....--|
|-------------------------12-let-ring......------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------------------|
