Play the 6 lines above twice. 
For the second time, notes with * are hold longer and the last line must 
be replaced with :

Then there is a guitar interlude and rhythm changes to triplet feel :

    penultimate bar
  - On 5th time, guitar solo begins and last bar is still
    identical to penultimate bar

For the 6th time, replace last 2 bars with :
