I was finally able to decipher this crazy song. Here are all the riffs in relative 
order, repeat as neccesary.
Some parts are not 100% correct, but pretty close.

Repeat the rhythm guitar sequence a few times underneath the solo, then switch to this...

Then comes the heavy 3/4 riff. Not sure if this is correct, but it's a fun riff to play regardless.
