This song has a great surf theme that you'll play throughout the song. We're at a pretty fast tempo here, and at first we're picking mostly 8th notes. But we'll be kicking into high gear later in the theme with some 16th note tremolo picking, so practice at a slower tempo first if you need to.

Even though we're playing major chords, the riff is mostly based in pentatonic box shapes. When we get to the V chord however, we'll play a little major lick (C, E, F, G). When we get back to the IV chord, Bb, we go back to the box shape, play the figure over F again, then stay on C in the turnaround.
