There's a repeated form that occurs underneath all of the soloing. Most of the section is made up of strums on that low G power chord, then modulating down to F at the end of every 2 bars. The first 8 bars end the same, with single F and C notes played with some cool 8th note syncopation.

The next 8 bars end with a different rhythm figure, but using the same F and C notes. The whole section then concludes with a cool final motif that features some nice chromatic notes to finish it off.

Note the variations that occur: 1) after the second section, the band tacets, and plays shots while the guitar and synth take a short solo. 2) there's a 4 bar build on an F chord leading into the final chorus.
