Little Intro Riff (RIFF ONE): E|-------------------| B|-------------------| G|-----------------7-| D|-----------------7-| A|-5p3p2-----------5-| D|-------5b-0-3b-0---| Brian May hits this before the next riff starts... F5 E|--- B|--- G|--- D|-3- A|-3- D|-3- VERSE RIFF (RIFF TWO): The first one is repeated once. E|--------------------------------------------------| B|--------------------------------------------------| G|-7-7-7\5-7----7-5----5-5-5\3-5---5-3----5-5-5\3---| D|-7-7-7\5-7----7-5----5-5-5\3-5---5-3----5-5-5\3-5-| A|-5-5-5\3-5----5-3----3-3-3\1-3---3-1----3-3-3\1-5-| D|------------------------------------------------5-| During part of the song, there is a variation...... That variation goes a little something like this... E|-----------------| B|-----------------| G|-7-7-7\5-7-------| D|-7-7-7\5-7-7-7-5-| A|-5-5-5\3-5-7-8-3-| D|-----------------| RIFF THREE: E|-------| B|-------| G|-----7-| D|-3-0-7-| A|-3-0-5-| D|-3-0---| CHORUS RIFF (RIFF FOUR): E|-------------------------------------------------| B|-------------------------------------------------| G|-------------------------------------------------| D|-3-3-3-0--3-3-0--3--0--3/5-5-5-5-5-5-8--8-8-12-0-| A|-3-3-3-0--3-3-0--3--0--3/5-5-5-5-5-5-8--8-8-12-0-| D|-3-3-3-0--3-3-0--3--0--3/5-5-5-5-5-5-8--8-8-12-0-| For one part of the chorus, do this: E|----------------------------------------------------| B|----------------------------------------------------| G|----------------------------------------------------| D|-3-3-3-0--3-3-0--3--0--8--8-8-8--8-8-8--8-8-8--3--5-| A|-3-3-3-0--3-3-0--3--0--8--8-8-8--8-8-8--8-8-8--3--5-| D|-3-3-3-0--3-3-0--3--0--8--8-8-8--8-8-8--8-8-8--3--5-| Then, there will be little things you will need for the song to play it exactly. For example, there is a pick slide at one part. Before the 2nd chorus, palm-mute the bass strings open. To start the bridge, use this "chord": E|--- B|--- G|--- D|-5- A|-5- D|-5- Then the bridge is something like this: E|----------------------------------------| B|----------------------------------------| G|-5-5-5\3-5------------------------------| D|-5-5-5\3-5--5-5-5/3-5--5-5-5-3--5-5-5-3-| A|-3-3-3\1-3--5-5-5/3-5--5-5-5-3--5-5-5-3-| D|------------5-5-5/3-5--5-5-5-3--5-5-5-3-| That's enough, don't you think' Have fun. If you don't know where each riff goes, and how many times to play it, I pity you. Any questions or comments'<-------Chris White(shaggymoods70@yahoo.com)
