This very last part after the bars is only played this way when Cedric
does not sing. When the voice is on, Omar improvises. He sometimes plays
the same melody, but on the lower octave, near the neck. Would be:
e --3-----
b --3-4---
g ------4-

keyboard constantly plays somethin like
e ---------3-
b -0-1-0-1---
but on a higher octave
