During the vocals we play a very soft rhythm guitar using downstrokes only:
[D9] Got me...
[D9] [G7] I c...[Eb9] [D9]
[D9]Got ...[A7]
I [D9]...[A9] [G9]
[G9] Bad love..[A9]..[G9]
is ....[D9]
Short guitar break at 1:02 with a variation of our well known Blues starting riff, going
to the root note at the high E-string and then back to the root note at the low E-string:
[(Bb9)(A9)]  
 
 I-------------10------------10--13---10-----------------------------13--12----|I
 I----------10----10-13b(15)-----12b-----10----10--------------------13--12----|I

1:01
[A9] Well I just can't stay[G9]
[G9] no more on this [D9]third degree
At 1:23 a variation of the above theme, than starting the next verse. Chords are the
and guitar fills between area again versions of the above theme.
At 2:41 we have a solo, all around the D minor Blues scale at the 10th fret. It starts like:
 
 I-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|I
 I-----------13/15-15-15~~~--13/15-13/15-13/15-13------------------------------13------|I
 I--14-14-14--------------------------------------(14)rb12-10---------10-12/14---------|I

 I-----------------------------------------------------------------------12------------|I

You now go on with the licks above. Remember to play fluid and clean, using small bends
sometimes a major note. Build up and release tension, another short example from 3:35
like:
 
 I----13-15-17-15-17-15h17p15--13-15-13---------------|I
 I-15-----------------------------------15-13-15~~~---|I
 I----------------------------------------------------|I
 I--------------------------------------------root----|I
 I--------------------------------------------note----|I
 I----------------------------------------------------|I

3:35
The end is easy to figure out, a short lick up and down ending with the chords Eb9 / D9.
