Artist: Queen
Song: White Man
Album: A Day at the Races
Transcribed by: Chris White (shaggymoods70@yahoo.com)
Tuning: Dropped D (DADGBE)

This is one bad ass song.

Little Intro Riff (RIFF ONE):

E|-------------------|
B|-------------------|
G|-----------------7-|
D|-----------------7-|
A|-5p3p2-----------5-|
D|-------5b-0-3b-0---|

Brian May hits this before the next riff starts...

  F5
E|---
B|---
G|---
D|-3-
A|-3-
D|-3-

VERSE RIFF (RIFF TWO):

  The first one is repeated once.

E|--------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------|
G|-7-7-7\5-7----7-5----5-5-5\3-5---5-3----5-5-5\3---|
D|-7-7-7\5-7----7-5----5-5-5\3-5---5-3----5-5-5\3-5-|
A|-5-5-5\3-5----5-3----3-3-3\1-3---3-1----3-3-3\1-5-|
D|------------------------------------------------5-|

During part of the song, there is a variation......
That variation goes a little something like this...

E|-----------------|
B|-----------------|
G|-7-7-7\5-7-------|
D|-7-7-7\5-7-7-7-5-|
A|-5-5-5\3-5-7-8-3-|
D|-----------------|

RIFF THREE:

E|-------|
B|-------|
G|-----7-|
D|-3-0-7-|
A|-3-0-5-|
D|-3-0---|

CHORUS RIFF (RIFF FOUR):

E|-------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------|
D|-3-3-3-0--3-3-0--3--0--3/5-5-5-5-5-5-8--8-8-12-0-|
A|-3-3-3-0--3-3-0--3--0--3/5-5-5-5-5-5-8--8-8-12-0-|
D|-3-3-3-0--3-3-0--3--0--3/5-5-5-5-5-5-8--8-8-12-0-|

For one part of the chorus, do this:

E|----------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------------------|
D|-3-3-3-0--3-3-0--3--0--8--8-8-8--8-8-8--8-8-8--3--5-|
A|-3-3-3-0--3-3-0--3--0--8--8-8-8--8-8-8--8-8-8--3--5-|
D|-3-3-3-0--3-3-0--3--0--8--8-8-8--8-8-8--8-8-8--3--5-|

Then, there will be little things you will need for the song to play
it exactly. For example, there is a pick slide at one part. Before
the 2nd chorus, palm-mute the bass strings open.

To start the bridge, use this "chord":

E|---
B|---
G|---
D|-5-
A|-5-
D|-5-

Then the bridge is something like this:

E|----------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------|
G|-5-5-5\3-5------------------------------|
D|-5-5-5\3-5--5-5-5/3-5--5-5-5-3--5-5-5-3-|
A|-3-3-3\1-3--5-5-5/3-5--5-5-5-3--5-5-5-3-|
D|------------5-5-5/3-5--5-5-5-3--5-5-5-3-|

That's enough, don't you think?
Have fun.
If you don't know where each riff goes, and how many times to play it,
I pity you.
