Queen - I cant live with you

Queen - I Can't Live With You Innuendo 1991 A great song by Queen and I found only one tab for it and since it was incomplete I'm trying to finish it now. I used Persechini Bruno's version as a starting point. I decided to cut the guitar parts into riffs so it is easier to follow. (At least I hope so...) Anyway, here you go: Standard tuning (EADGBE) Notes: Chord formations: / - slide up E (079997) \ - slide down A (x02220) or (577655) h - hammer-on Am (x02210) or (577555) p - pull-off B (x24442) or (799877) b - bend string C (x35553) r - release G (355433) ~ - vibrato D (x57775) F#m7 (244252) Riff 1 (in chorus) E-----------------------------| B--9-9--9--9--9\--(2)---------| G--9-9--9--9--9\--(2)---------| (I can't live with you...) D--9-9--9--9--9\--(2)---------| A--7-7--7--7--7\--(0)---------| E-----------------------------| Riff 2 (in verse) E-----------------------------| B-----------------------------| G-----------------------------| (I'm having a hard time...) D----4----2/3/4----2/3/4------| A----4----2/3/4----2/3/4------| E----2----0/1/2----0/1/2------| Riff 3 (in verse) E-----------------------------| B-----------------------------| G-----------------------------| (You may think that I don't care...) D-----------------------------| A---1-/2-/3-/4---7p4----------| E---------------------4-------| Riff 4 (in verse) E-------------------------------------------| B-------------------------------------------| G-6-----------------------------------------| (I travelled a long...) D-7---7--7----5/6/7---7--7----5/6/7---7--7--| A-7---7--7----5/6/7---7--7----5/6/7---7--7--| E-5-----------3/4/5-----------3/4/5---------| Riff 5 (in verse) E-----------------------------| B-----------------------------| G-----------------------------| (But nothing's what it seems...) D----------------------7------| A--/4-/5-/6-/7---10p7--7------| E-----------------------------| And so the song goes like this: [INTRO] at 0:01 Riff 1 (2x) [CHORUS] at 0:06 Riff 1 A B Riff 1 A B D A Riff 1 (2x) [VERSE 1] at 0:26 Riff 2 Riff 3 Riff 4 Riff 5 [PRE-CHORUS] at 0:47 C - G | C - G | C - G | D (2x) Love is say-ing ba-by... C - G | C - G | C - G | D - A | D - A | D - A Lo-ver turns to ha-ter... [CHORUS] at 01:03 (Riff 1 1x at the end!) [VERSE 2] at 01:21 (Same as VERSE 1) [PRE-CHORUS] at 01:42 C - G | C - G | C - G | D (2x) Hold on baby... C - G | C - G | C - G | D - A | D - A | D - A | B Passions screaming hotter... ...gotta do... [BRIDGE] at 2:03 (I'm not sure about this part...) E A Am G B A F#m7 B [SOLO] at 2:18 E A B E A B E-------------------------------------------------------| B--------------12--10p9---------------------------------| G---7b9~~~---------------9------------------------------| D--------------------------9---9b11~~9--7--6------------| A----------------------------------------------9--------| E-------------------------------------------------------| E A B E-------------------------------------------------------| B-------------------------------------------------------| G----------------11b13r11p9-----9-13b14r13--11----------| D------------9---------------11-------------------------| A---7---9h11--------------------------------------------| E-------------------------------------------------------| E D G B E-------------------------------------------------------| B----------------------------------------/12------------| G---9----9---9--14~~-12p11h12~~-11p9h11-----------------| D----------9--------------------------------------------| A-------------------------------------------------------| E-------------------------------------------------------| [CHORUS] at 2:39 (this guitar part at 2:50) D A E---------------------/9---/10--/11--/12--15b16----| B---/7--/9--/10--/12--/10--/12--/13--/14--16b17----| G---/7--/9--/11--/13-------------------------------| D--------------------------------------------------| A--------------------------------------------------| E--------------------------------------------------| (I think it's actually played by two guitars, one starting from the G string going to the B, the other is from B to E...) [CHORUS] at 2:50 [OUTRO] at 3:15 Riff 1 A B to fade ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Well that's it, not 100% precise but that's the way we play it and I think it's fairly close. At least it sounds OK. There are many guitar fills in the song that I haven't transcribed so you gotta figure them out for yourselves.
