Words and music by Brian May

Transcribed by Philipp (PraxisNothaft@t-online.de) 

Some information first: 

John plays a Fender precision bass on this song. While looking at the video, you can see his bass - and how he's
playing the song - very well (look at the staccato he's doing with the left hand) 

Here is the score of the song: 
  Voice1:(freddie) 
  Voice2:(brian) 
  Backing vocals 
  Film dialogues 
  Guitar choir containing up to eight guitars 
  Keyboard1(playing sound effects like siren or rockets) 
  Keyboard2:sound effects(rockets and laser guns) 
  Keyboard3:swell pad sound 
  Keyboard4:playing extreme low piano pitches(these tones,that are too low for a regular piano) 
  Piano 
  BASS!!! 
  timpani 
  drums 

Here's the line,john plays very often:(RIFF 1)
