Everything in bar 9 of the progression is picked out of a B7 chord fingering.
B7
Bar 10 is basically a repeat of bar 2.

Note how we go back down the blues scale in the last beat of bar 9 (from B to A) and bar 10 (from A to E) to insert some nice little bass riffs between our chord transitions.

Bars 11-12 basically repeat the last 2 bars of the intro, and for a good reason -- now we're ready to go around for another 12 bars!
