Amazing song. Awesome Vocals & Keys. Virtually empty Guitar. PuppetMasterIX
This was easily my most anticipated song this week, as it is with many other people. However, I also had a feeling that, while Keys and Vocals would be straight-up awesome, and while Bass and Drums would be at the very least serviceable, the song would have no guitar other than solo; the Wikipedia article's information about the solo being the only guitar playing in the song made my worries far more certain. Needless to say, that suspicion has come to fruition.

The only part that the guitarist plays in the entire three-and-a-half-minute song is the solo which lasts roughly 25 seconds. Going by the difficulty of passing it, this song is ridiculously overtiered, as the solo itself is not even very challenging as a whole to pass; come to think of it, it's not even very difficult to nail.

Again, this is an amazing song and easily one of the most famous this week, and while it's one of the better full band charts by Queen, it's not enough to prevent me from giving the Guitar chart the lowest rating. Despite this, I would still recommend picking it up, as it is a great party song and four-player groups can simply ignore Guitar entirely and opt for the Bass and Keys, which I can assure you are vastly superior and would easily justify the purchase in place of Brian May's soloing.

Rest assured that this song is as amazing on keys as you might anticipate. While the keys never really take a solo, or the melody, they are the driving force behind this song. Lots of chords with a little arpeggiation thrown in there. On pro keys there are lots of 7th chords, and it likes to jump up and down a lot, but nothing too unreasonable. More importantly, it makes you feel like a badass when playing it. 5 stars. Recommended to anyone who wants to feel like a boss.

The guitar on this song is virtually nonexistent. Thankfully, John Deacon comes through as usual and produces yet another great bass part.

You aren't playing anything really advanced; for the most part you're just playing quarter notes with a few sustains thrown in. Instead of just switching from one fret to another, you transition from fret to fret with a kickass feeling trio of hopos that slide up/down to the next fret. Fairly often you'll play a not-hopo'd but still fun scale down the frets.

There's nothing particularly special about this bassline, but I can't play it without tapping my foot and feeling like a boss. Definitely definitely definitely worth picking up if you like the song. (And frankly, who doesn't love this song?)
