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
