Subject: BASS TAB + CHORDS: Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

Well... I've been taking so much tablature and information from this newsgroup
that I thought I'd better repay the favour. I hope this bass transcription is o
f some use to at least somebody in the world and I guess some guitarists may be
able to use the names of the chords given. If this is of any use to you, please
 post a reply either to the newsgroup as an article or E-Mail me personally, I
really would appreciate any sensible comments. Also, if antbody else wants some
 more Queen transcriptions, I may be able to help. Look forward to hearing from
 people,
 
 
Cheers!
