Im looking for the theory behind the last few bars, not just what they are but why theyre there too.

So thanks for the help Captain no help.

My approximation by ear.

Bm sweep (using the C shape at the 14th fret A string) descending then ascending up the D major triad arpeggio (17th fret A string), then partially descend a Bm7 arp using the Am7 shape followed by:

top e 17-14-12-10 repetition lick (tap 17) exit with a bend on 17.

Bm7 and D major share many common tones.
-14p10-----------------14h17t19p17p14------------14t17p14p12p10 (repeat)-17b19
------12-------------15--------------15--------15
--------11---------14------------------16p14h16
----------12-----16
------------14s17

Thank you, what gets me though is the there are 4 arpeggios before he goes into triplets though no?

It goes Bm, D, Bm, then too a higher note a G arpeggio ?

im pretty sure the last is triplets, something like

20-19-17 on the G string
then 20-18-17 on the D
