I Can't Live With You  Queen

Queen - I Can't Live With You
Innuendo
[1991]  
A great song by Queen and I found only one tab for it and since it
was incomplete I'm trying to finish it now.
I used Persechini Bruno's version as a starting point.
I decided to cut the guitar parts into riffs so it is
easier to follow. (At least I hope so...) Anyway, here you go:
Standard tuning (EADGBE)
Notes: Chord formations:
/ - slide up E (079997)
\ - slide down A (x02220) or (577655)
h - hammer-on Am (x02210) or (577555)
p - pull-off B (x24442) or (799877)
b - bend string C (x35553)
r - release G (355433)
~ - vibrato D (x57775)
Riff 1 (in chorus)[F#m7] [(244252)]
 
 E-----------------------------|
 B--9-9--9--9--9\--(2)---------|
 G--9-9--9--9--9\--(2)---------| (I can't live with you...)
 D--9-9--9--9--9\--(2)---------|
 A--7-7--7--7--7\--(0)---------|
 E-----------------------------|

 G-----------------------------| (I'm having a hard time...)
 D----4----2/3/4----2/3/4------|
 A----4----2/3/4----2/3/4------|
 E----2----0/1/2----0/1/2------|

Riff 3 (in verse)
 
 E-----------------------------|
 B-----------------------------|
 G-----------------------------| (You may think that I don't care...)
 D-----------------------------|

 E---------------------4-------|

Riff 4 (in verse)
 
 E-------------------------------------------|
 B-------------------------------------------|
 G-6-----------------------------------------| (I travelled a long...)
 D-7---7--7----5/6/7---7--7----5/6/7---7--7--|
 A-7---7--7----5/6/7---7--7----5/6/7---7--7--|
 E-5-----------3/4/5-----------3/4/5---------|

Riff 5 (in verse)
 
 E-----------------------------|
 B-----------------------------|
 G-----------------------------| (But nothing's what it seems...)
 D----------------------7------|
 A--/4-/5-/6-/7---10p7--7------|
 E-----------------------------|

(I think it's actually played by two guitars, one starting from
the G string going to the B, the other is from B to E...)
[CBORUS] at 2:50
[OUTRO] at 3:15
Riff 1 A B to fade
 
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------

Well that's it, not 100% precise but that's the way we play it and
I think it's fairly close. At least it sounds OK.
There are many guitar fills in the song that I haven't
transcribed so you gotta figure them out for yourselves.
