NOTE ON Riff 6: I don't think what I have listed above is exactly how this
part is played, but I can't figure it out just by listening. It sounds
like there may be two guitars playing two different things here, and that
they may be using a slide instead of a bend. Another suggestions as to how
you might play this part:

"B" string, and one playing only the "G" string:
