There are three lead guitars at the end of the song.

Continue in this fashion until the song ends. The pattern is different each time.
The start of the third time around, the first set of 8th fret double stops are done

[Lead during coda: second guitar]

This part is rather hard to decipher, so here are the general ideas,
it's a little hard to tell where which lead guitar is which at some points.

Phrase 1
e----------------8----------|
b---10-8-10-8----8----------|
g-------------10------------|
d---------------------------|
a---------------------------|
e------------------/8-------|

Phrase 2
                                        Some bends, should be done slowly. Hard to decipher here.

Lead during coda: second guitar
