Sure, normally that measure would transition into backup which is why is doesn’t loop completely seamlessly you’re correct.
If you wanted to loop it what you’d do is take the first note of measure 34 (open 4th string) and substitute it for the first 8th notes (open 4th string and 1st fret 2nd string) of measure 2.
If you play the first note of measure 34 and then the last 3 notes of measure 2 you’d be able to pickup into the solo again.
Hopefully that makes sense. Let me know if you have any other questions.
