Any kind of SNES samples that could help me replicate a part of a song?

So, I have been trying to cover a song in Megaman X style (yet again), but there is something that the Megaman X samples always have trouble fully emulating (well, at least in my case), and that`s guitar riffs (or whatever is in the first part of this song, I cant tell the real instrument apart). Here a Youtube link of the song, btw (its basically Megaman X6`s boss theme):

Well, now comes the real question: are there any SNES games which actually have a sample that can fully emulate the first part? And if so, which game is it (so I can rip the sample)? I have tried ripping from both Mighty Morphin` Power Rangers: The Movie and Donkey Kong Country 3`s sample set (since I heard there was guitar riffs in the soundtrack), but the actual riffs were way too short/were way too high pitched, so I dunno how can i make them work tbh. If there is a way to emulate that with just Megaman X`s sample set, please tell me so I can try it.

Which part of the song are you looking for a sample for? Can you describe where the sound(s) occur so I know what you're looking for? To me it sounds like a lot of rhythm and wah wah stuff at the beginning with a piercing lead guitar sound further in.
If I can get an idea of what you're looking for, I could make a sample for you. I've made sort of a library of brr samples that I plan to use in ports with custom samples. I mean I could rip them... but that's no fun for me, I play with samplers a lot so it was sort of a challenge to see how a library of homemade samples could work. From the stuff I've started with them, I have to say I'm impressed. Not trying to brag or anything, just amazed that my crazy ideas work. Lol
Alternatively, Rock and Roll Racing has the best guitar samples in a snes game I've heard, Any time I try to do homemade guitar brr samples, I always go for that style. eventually I'll break down and rip their samples because I like them so much. YOu could give those a try too. From what I heard, Tim Follin used real guitars to record those.
Make more of less, that way you won't make less of more!
It won't really be possible to re-create that part of the song accurately. The guitar is put through Wah-wah pedal which not an effect achievable on the SPC700. The only SPC song I know that uses a sample of a guitar through that effect is Funky The Main Monkey from DKC2, but I don't think it'll work in that situation. No harm in trying I guess.

You're best off just doing it with any standard distortion guitar sample, adding delayed vibrato and forgoing making it accurate.

Well, i followed your advice and put a slow vibrato on a distortion guitar. Here is the result:

Any thoughts? I also put some ADSR on the lead overdrive guitar, but since its literally my first time fully using ADSR for my samples, the ADSR might not be ideal tbh.
