Bring Back That Leroy Brown  Queen

Brian actually plays this on an ukele banjo. This is only an approximate
transcription for guitar. Gotta play it in that fast, Dixie style. (Or is it
Charleston? Anyways....) The *really* tough part, where you'll need the most
practice, is the C, B7, Bb7, A7, Dm7, C#dim, G7, C, G7+5 run. (Whoosh!) Once you
can play that, the rest of the song is a cinch.
Chords: G7+5 = xx1001, G#dim = xx0101,
C/E = xx2010,
1dim = xx1212, 2dim = xx2323 (don't know the names,
but they're diminished chords)
