The Show Must Go On

Words and music by Queen (Brian with input from other three)

This track is very simple and is based around a couple of basic riffs with linky bits. I've only provided the basis riffs below, but it sounds cool, and is a good emulation of the original keyboard! It would have made a great unplugged track.

Strum each chord 'downwards' four times


e --2--2--0--2--x--x--0--x--0--0--2--2--0--0----
b --3--2--0--3--3--2--0--3--3--2--2--2--0--2----
g --4--4--4--4--0--0--0--0--0--0--4--3--0--0----
d --4--4--4--4--0--0--2--0--2--2--4--4--2--2----
a --2--2--2--2--2--2--x--2--2--2--x--x--2--1----
e --x--x--x--x--3--3--3--3--0--0--x--x--0--0----

This is then repeated again!

Then riff2 starts with the line 'Whatever happens.....'


e --4--4--4--4--4--x--x--x--x--x--x--4--4--2---
b --2--5--4--7--5--5--4--7--5--2--2--4--4--2---
g --2--6--6--6--6--6--6--6--6--2--2--6--5--2---
d --4--6--6--6--6--7--7--7--7--2--1--6--6--4---
a --x--4--4--4--4--0--0--0--0--x--x--x--x--4---
e --x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--2--2--x--x--2---

Riff 2 then repeats, and then there's some other stuff.
