For riff 1, for most of the first two repetitions each chord is strummed once, for the last two reps they're strummed in a simple rhythm which is easy to hear.

Second time they use this riff, drop the second part For the solo, again beware of the condensed note spacing. Also note that the bends are slow bends,
