Queen – In The Lap Of The Gods – Guitar Cover with guitar tab

This video is more a guitar cover with guitar tab than a lesson

A more brilliant advanced arrangement for classical guitar can be heard by Troubleclef https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S95tqNHtL8A

Freddie Mercury composition from the 1974 Sheer Heart Attack album
Arranged for intermediate acoustic guitar with guitar tab on screen

“In the Lap of the Gods” is, according to Mercury himself, the direct prelude to “Bohemian Rhapsody” and the A Night at the Opera album in general. It is built in three parts: the introduction, which contains fast piano arpeggios, very high-toned falsettos by Taylor plus vocals harmonies, the second part which is a slow love song, featuring slowed-down vocals by Mercury, and the third part, based on vocals harmonies singing “leave it in the lap of the gods”, with more falsettos by Taylor. Those high notes were thought to be made using synthesisers, and to prove they were not, Taylor would reproduce them in live performance every night. Throughout the entire song, wind effects can be heard.
