Bohemian Rhapsody, as played by Newton Faulkner
Tabbed by Simon Campling

Tuning is DADGAD but another 1/2 step down in the video on YouTube ( 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqtWsQcoOkQ )
Newton plays this with some loose timing, so the best way to follow it would be to check 
out the video. I've put in some lyrics to give you an idea of where abouts you are in 
the song!
If I've but a chord in a section |-2-| it normally means play for a bar.

Notes with a * mean it's a harmonic. "H" under the tab means Newton is hitting the body 
of his guitar with his right hand.
