Queen - She makes me

#------------------------------------------------------------------------------# # SHE MAKES ME (Stormtropper in Stilettoes) [Brian May/Queen. from the albumn _Sheer Heart Attack_.] I find that the secret to this tune is getting the D A changes for the verses and intro right. Very difficult to write out for someone who knows zip about rhythm theory; this is an approximation, not a subsitute for learning by listening. The D is strummed with fairly fast up-and-down strokes; the A is basically just downstrokes. When the verse switches chords, play the C in the rhythm as the A, the G like the D. Clear as mud?:-) The D** in the chorus includes a run on the B string. Starting from the D chord: 3, 2, 0, 0/2/3, with the last three in quick succession. Other chords: Dm7 = xx0211, C#7 = x4342x. As the words are simple, they really need to be sung in the right spirit - something between sombre and tortuous (?!). (Slowly) Intro: D A D A D A D A [1]
