Queen - I Can't Live With You

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)

[CHORUS] at 2:39(this guitar part at 2:50) D AE---------------------/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 fromthe 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.
