This is one bad ass song.

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...
F5E|---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)
