The first half of rhythmic motif 1 is stated, first half only to set up the guitar second guitar solo or main hook. Every song has some hook to send you off whistling or humming and this is certainly no exception! This solo has four sections, let's have a look:

Part 1- four phrases
Part 2- four phrases
Part 3- one long phrase (3 over 4 polly-rhythm)
Part 4- three repeated phrases with ensemble accents

As you may have noticed, I left out the short riffs in between each phrase for ease of learning. These "answer" lines have an improvised feel and can be played as loose or as literal as you like. They are all based in the A minor pentatonic scale at the 5th fret.
