How To Play Queen – Sweet Lady from the 1975 album A Night At The Opera

Guitar Tab Link : http://1drv.ms/1wXCRep

A truly great rock track and the inspiration behind the fast version of We Will Rock You (Live Killers Album)

I’ve added guitar tab as a guide.
The guitar tab is correct on chorus as a I made an error in my explanation. The first two bars are played 3 times as opposed to twice.

As the guitar outro solo is quite a explosion of overlapping licks played at the same time I’ve tried to give a brief look at the different bits used. Listening to the original record should make things clearer.

“Sweet Lady” is a distortion-driven fast rocker written by May. The song is an unusual rock style in 3/4 meter (which gives way to 4/4 at the bridge). Taylor remembers it as the most difficult drumming part he ever recorded.[attribution needed]

The backing track was probably recorded live as you can hear the snare wires on the snare drum of Taylor’s kit vibrating along with Deacon’s bass guitar riff.
