                              ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

                         (Version Datestamp: 27.12.94)

D|-9-----------------------12--14~-12----------------------10-------------

A|------------------------------------14-12--12------------10-------------

E|----------------------------------------------15--14-12--8--------------



Guitar 1 repeats itself when it can be bothered throughout.



Most of the vibratos are to keep your fingers happy throughout, except for the 

one on fret 14 in the fast bit.



Guitar 2 does this next bit when he repeats the chorus twice, at some point, 

still with fuzz/ distortion/ whatever. For those of you who really wanted to 

know:

Have fun...

NOTES

^^^^^



I hope this is okay to read. If you have any difficulties then do email

me. The structure of the piece is the main thing I'm worried that people

won't understand, so for those of you baffled it goes like this...



INTRODUCTION

|

|

VERSE 1

|

|

VERSE 2

|

|

CHORUS 1

|

|

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

|

|

VERSE 3

CHORUS 2

|

END CHORDS



Really let the last few notes ring out. It gives the piece that solemn

feel to it.



Also, carry the last E minor chord of the break into the few words of

the third verse.



Please let me know what you think of this either on email or on

alt.guitar.tab. I think it sounds really nice if played right, and it

doesn't matter whether you sing along to it or just play it on its own.

Either way it sounds quite `awesome'(as the kids at Camp last year used

to say!)



Have fun!



JBR

                              Brian May



This is the version from the "Live at Wembley '86" album.

It is in a different key from that on "A Kind of Magic", which is in Em.

This is in Dm and has, I think, a nicer atmosphere than the first.

You can play the single version by sliding the whole lot up 2 frets.



Key.

b - bend up one semitone.

r - release bend.

/x slide up to fret x.

x/ slide down to fret x.

h hammer on.

p pull off.
