Rhy fig.3 "I'll call" bit.  Strum repeatedly.

The high pitched notes that you hear in the part of the song [1:45-2:25] is played where the strings are taut at the bridge if you hav a Fender Jaguar or most Gibsons. Brian strikes the low E [F] string then picks the taut strings.  This is quite hard to recreate if you don't have a Jaguar.
