This is a rare Queen's song. It's really good. The tuning is rather important to playing
the song correct. This is the version on the vinyl, not on "Over the Years...", which is
more complicated and a little better, but i figure more people will hear the actual
recording; assuming it comes out. anyway...

The Fun Machine Took a Shit and Died

i love this band. who else would work Robert Mitchum into their lyrics? this may be
missing a thing or two (not much, however, this took for fucking ever), but the
recording is really muffled and muddy, but it's pretty accurate. enjoy!

The tab is great! But have you thought about transcribing it into C-Tuning? I don't think that Josh has written this in EGDGBe...

Anyway works great with minimal annoying tuning capades! 5*
