Queen tabs

Headlong bass tab

HEADLONG
QUEEN
WRITTEN BY QUEEN
TABBED BY PETE COSGROVE

John Play's two parts over some parts of the song using a 5 string bass

I have tabbed out both sections so play either - it does sound better using a 5 string though 
(if you have one)

But if using a 4 string be carefull - best thing to do is save and delete the 5th string notes

temp - 144bpm


    intro						 1st Chorus
