Before you can play that solo, there are two things you have to be able to do. First is a right hand thing,that shuffle rhythm, which works for me as a down stroke with an up snap, kind of "Baaduh/baaduh/baaduh/baaduh"

The second is a left hand thing--you have to be able to play a walking bass line out of an open D chord, using a hammer-on the fourth fret(on both the D and G strings) with your pinky. (if you can't do this already, it will take a bit of repetition, and may be a little uncomfortable)

After you've got that stuff, you can start to work out the solo, which is really just a variant of the old standard walking bass line.
