These riffs are for the first solo.  They harmonize quite nicely.

This riff starts at the end of the second harmonized solo.  The first
acoustic riff (Riff.1) is played behind Riff.4.

This song takes a little practice to get the feel for some of these riffs.
Riff.1 should be easy to pick up and the solos are really easy.  Have fun
with this one and get someone to play the acoustric riff while you try to
tackle the electric riffs.  It should sound pretty nice when complete.
