  1. that moment when you’re a beginner and in way over your head and you don’t know a good third of the cords in the song 0_0

  2. Holly he’ll no I’m sorry Freddie but no, I play over 4 different stringed instruments and have really strong and thick calluses on my fingers but not even I could do this

  3. september !

    everytime i play this song my hand just cramps in the middle of it smh

  4. onebigsandwhich

    it would be really awesome if in the second verse the chords were there

  5. friendpleasestayalive

    same oH my gOd

  6. MusicalPeach

    I think a lot of cm7 moments can be replaced with just cm

  7. Worthless

    mY BoDY Is In A FUll BOdY cAsT

  8. Mcguy215

    Wanna make it sound better?
    The first two Bb chords shoud be Bb6 (Just Bb but leave the G string open)
    The Db chord in anyway the wind blows should be C#dim7(1-0-1-0)

  9. DUDE I Just CANT belive they said same as before! Theres like a billion chords and now I have to copy it BY MY SELF!

  10. I just played C,A,F and then G for the mama oooo part I don’t know if it’s right but it sounded ok

  11. Angie Gibson

    I love Freddie n all but lets be serious now. 26. Freakin. Chords… was this a preventative measure against plagiarism. It is the only thing that makes sense about it

    • hello there / general kenobi!!

      well I suppose it’s a necessary evil because if you can play the song through it sounds very good.

  12. my fingers are gONe

  13. okay so on -3 when you play the easier chords, does the “mama, ooohohoh, didnt mean to make you cry” part sound weird? idk if its just me, or my uke but it does Not Sound Right.

  14. AsoCan’tPlayUke

    The chords literally take up the entire page wtf


  16. MeowingCat39

    I’ve been wanting to play it for so long and now I can! (With some chords changed). Thank you, Queen!

  17. tyler's piano

    mama, uwu

    kill me

  18. -3 is way easier trust me. especially on the easy come easy go part. you just have to slide up and down and for g just remove a finger. very easy and sounds nice too

  19. FreddieMercury12

    This would be easy if there wasn’t infinite chords, but hey at least we have someone to blame (jk
    I love Freddie Mercury but he tends to make his songs impossible to play.)

  20. i DiD iT and I’m proud of myself but now my fingers hurt ow
