From: harlow@waikato.ac.nz (STEPHEN HARLOW) Subject: TAB: Crazy Little Thing Called Love This is how I play Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Queen. The bass line isn't an exact transcription off the record, but is my version (my favourite parts culled from the studio recording and various live performances). Anyway have fun... Play this twice... G-+--------------4--+--------------4--+--------7--7--9--+--5--5--4--4-----+ D-|-----4--7--7-----|-----4--7--7-----|--5--9-----------|--------------5--| A-|--5--------------|--5--------------|-----------------|-----------------| E-+-----------------+-----------------+-----------------+-----------------+ Then... G-+--------------4--+--------------+----------4---4--7--+ D-|-----4--7--7-----|--------3--3--|-----4--7---7-------| A-|--5--------------|--1--1--------|--5-----------------| E-+-----------------+--------------+--------------------+ That comprises the 1st and 3rd verses and the outro. Second verse goes... G-+-----------------+-----------------+--------------+-----------------+ D-|-----------------|-----------------|--------------|-----------------| A-|-----7--9--9--7--|-----7--9--9--7--|--3--3--3--3--|-----7--9--9--7--| E-+--3--------------+--3--------------+--------------+--3--------------+ G-+--------------+--------------+ D-|--8--7--5-----|--------------| A-|-----------8--|--6--5--------| E-+--------------+--------8--6--+ G-+-------------------+----------------+----------------+----------------+ D-|-------------------|----------------|----------------|--7-7--4--3-----| A-|--7--7-------------|--5-4-3---------|---------7-7-7--|-------------7--| E-+--------5-5--5--1--+---------5-4-3--+--0-0-0---------+----------------+ 3rd verse (same as for 1st verse) fits in here. Then the guitar solo... G-+--------------+----------------+--------------+-------------4--+ D-|--8--5-----5--|--8-8--5-----5--|--------5--5--|-----4--7-7-----| A-|--------8-----|----------8-----|--5--5--------|--5-------------| E-+--------------+----------------+--------------+----------------+ G-+----------------+-----------+ D-|--7-7--5--------|-----------| A-|----------8--6--|--5--3--1--| E-+----------------+-----------+ G-+-------------------+----------------+------------------+ D-|-------------------|----------------|-----------4-5-7--| A-|--7--7-------------|--5-4-3---------|---------7--------| E-+--------5-5--5--1--+---------5-4-3--+--0-0-0-----------+ Then the outro, basically the 1st verse pattern with the first riff repeated on and on (and on if live) you can make up some variations! I think all the bits are here you just need to listen to the recording and arrange them. Hope you can follow it all not standard notation but it's the best I can do! Sorry I'm too lazy!
