okay, I'm not going to transcribe the entire frenzy, because
it follows the same blues runs transcribed above.

Follow the G blues scale:
-------------------------6-8(10)-|
---------------------6-8---------|
---------------3-5/7-------------|
-----------3-5-------------------|
-----1-3/5-----------------------|
-1-3-----------------------------|


at the climax of the frenzy, play this chord over and over
-15-----|
-15-----|
-17(19)-
--------|
--------|
--------|

then sing the airmail verse over

-----------3~-|
-----------3~-|
-----------4~-|
----3---3--5~-|
-/5---5-------|
--------------|
