Bohemian Rhapsody


Transposer


             Soo, this is my first tab and I hope you like it!
This complete tab is copied from Marty Music *https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmnlTWVJysjWPFiZhQ5uudg
I found this video of him teaching Bohemian Rhapsody from Queen, very, very useful and I really loved the way
he made the song really easy for the guitar.

This the way Marty teaches the song on Youtube. Because he doesn't use tabs, I made it for you.
In the video he only teaches the first part of the song, so the opera section,
Rock and the Ballad style outro are not included.

I really recommend to watch the video, and now you can use this tab beside it :D

Capo 3rd
Tabs relative to the capo.

The first 4 chords are played with just 1 down stroke.

[Intro]

G6
Is this the real life?
A7
Is this just fantasy?
D7
Caught in a landslide,
      G
No escape from reality.


From now on you just strum down for a bit

[Verse 1]

Em
Open your eyes,
G7                       C
Look up to the skies and see,
Am                   D7
I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy,
            G#   G     F#   G
Because I'm easy come, easy go,
G#     G     F#     G
Little high, little low,
C           G          A#dim7         D7
Any way the wind blows doesn't really matter to me, to me.


When the 'me' from the last sentence comes in the tab starts. Originally played on piano but sounds
really cute on the guitar,

   Goodbye everybody,   I've got to go

Am                  Am/G#      Am/G     Am/F# Am/F Am/E
