Next is the 4th string open and then a hammer-on to the 3rd fret with 3rd finger and then a pull-off back to the open string and then another hammer-on to the 3rd fret of the 5th string with 3rd finger and finally the open 4th string to finish off the lick. Soule continues by demonstrating the last part of the riff based on some power chords and a short melody based in the minor pentatonic scale.
