here´s how I play it:

-------------------------------------------------7---10---7-----
-------------------------------7-----------7--------------------
----------------------7-----------7-----------------------------
-------------9-----------9-----------9--------------------------
-----9----------9-----------------------------------------------
-7------7------------------------------------------------------- 

------------------------------------------------------- 
--7---------------------------------------------------- 
-----7------7------------------------------------------ 
--------9-------9-------------------------------------- 
--------------------9---------------------------------- 
------------------------7------------------------------ 


1. The scale to improvise around. I move between the one shown and the same scale an octave higher. As so:
e---------------------------19--22--19-------------------------------------------
B-----------------------19--------------19---------------------------------------
G-------------------19----------------------19-----------------------------------
D---------------21------------------------------21-------------------------------
A-----------21--------------------------------------21---------------------------
E---19--22----------------------------------------------22--19------------------

So you might play something like:
e-------------------------------------10s22--19------------------------------------
B-------------------------7--------7-------------19--------------------------------
G-------------------7--------7-----------------------19------19-------------------
D-------------9--------9--------9------------------------22------22---------------
A------9---------9---------------------------------------------------22------------
E---7-----7--------------------------------------------------------------19---------

2. Play about. I sometimes find a four or five note pattern that sounds really good through delay, move it to fit the scales,
and put in the middle. For example:

e--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B-------------------------7h9-----7h9------------------------------------------------
G---------7h9-----7h9-7h9-----7h9---------7h9-----7h9-----------------------------
D-----7h9-----7h9---------------------7h9-----7h9-----------------------------------
A--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Play this very fast repeated a few times in the middle of an up or down run, it sounds good providing you can do it while keeping the tempo of your 'up-and-down' run.

3. How to end the song. Two different ways: My own way, or the Rock in Rio 3 way. Both of these are good. 
First, the Rock in Rio way:

Start after a down run, slide up to:
e---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B---12~--12-12-14~~--12-12-15~~------12-12-14-14-12-12-15-15~~----15-15-14-14~~--12-12-14-14~~---
G---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
D---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

cont'd:
e------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B---15-15-14-14~--12-12-10-10~~------s12-12-10-10~-------10-10~----------
G--------------------------------------------------12-12---------------------------
D------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
E------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The other way is a way I made up myself through just jamming on the song. Go back into the first riff, play it once through on both chords, then go back on the first chord once and play it slowing down until you are playing very slowly, like so:
e------------------------------------------------10---------12-------14-------------
B------------------------------------------------10---------12-------14------------
G------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
D------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A-----9-7-9-7-----7----------------------------------------------------------------
E--7-----------10---10----9------10---7~~~~-------------------------------------
