With this arrangement you'l need the follow four chords:

The rhythm is pretty much down up stop un down up stop up and so on with a bit of bass running thrown in at various places in the song. And of course where there are drum rolls, you can duplicate that a bit with some shuffle strumming.
I don't usually like to play stand alone lead breaks because it breaks up the rhythm. I'd prefer to blend both where possible. This song kinda is just lead in the break so you do what you can as a lead player or you just play rhythm through that section.
