Who Wants To Live Forever ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ By Queen ~~~~~~~~
The Solo ~~~~~~~~ By Pope Bovophobe V ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ (Version Datestamp: 27.12.94)
Guitar 1:

Guitar 2: e|------------------------------------------------------------------------ B|------------------------------------------------------------------------ G|-12~--11---9~-----12~---11---9~----11h12-12--11h12-12/14-16------------- D|---------9-----------------9-------------------------------------------- A|------------------------------------------------------------------------ E|------------------------------------------------------------------------

Guitar 1 repeats itself when it can be bothered throughout.
Most of the vibratos are to keep your fingers happy throughout, except for the one on fret 14 in the fast bit.
Guitar 2 does this next bit when he repeats the chorus twice, at some point, still with fuzz/ distortion/ whatever. For those of you who really wanted to know:

Have fun...

C G Am ch. 2 Who wants to live forever? C G Am Who wants to love forever? C Bm Am7 Who dares to love forever? D Bb Oh________ Em Who waits forever anyway?

NOTES ^^^^^
I hope this is okay to read. If you have any difficulties then do email me. The structure of the piece is the main thing I'm worried that people won't understand, so for those of you baffled it goes like this...
INTRODUCTION | | VERSE 1 | | VERSE 2 | | CHORUS 1 | | INSTRUMENTAL BREAK | | VERSE 3 | | CHORUS 2 | | END CHORDS
Really let the last few notes ring out. It gives the piece that solemn feel to it.
Also, carry the last E minor chord of the break into the few words of the third verse.
Please let me know what you think of this either on email or on alt.guitar.tab. I think it sounds really nice if played right, and it doesn't matter whether you sing along to it or just play it on its own. Either way it sounds quite `awesome'(as the kids at Camp last year used to say!)
Have fun!

This is the version from the "Live at Wembley '86" album. It is in a different key from that on "A Kind of Magic", which is in Em. This is in Dm and has, I think, a nicer atmosphere than the first. You can play the single version by sliding the whole lot up 2 frets.
Key. b - bend up one semitone. r - release bend. /x slide up to fret x. x/ slide down to fret x. h hammer on. p pull off.
