Then later on there is something like this for a little while, but the first two riffs
would work fine too:

You alternate Riffs #1 and #2 for most of the song.
Then around 2:22 in the 4:10 version of the song, it changes to Riff #3.
At 2:39, it goes back to the alternating Riffs #1 and #2.


The rhythm is the most important part of the line and the only way you can really know what
it is is by listening to the song a bunch of times. Since it's pretty funky, you're not
going to play it like that by just playing the notes above as straight eighth notes.
