Hey people does anyone know what keys The Miracle is in? in the song analysis it says C-,Db, Eb, but having listened to it i'm unsure whether thats all a half-step too low. Maybe I'm being stupid but if anyone can confirm?

I have the book: "Classic Queen, Off The Record" where is notes to the Miracle. At beginning the key is Cm and later Db, later again Cm and in the end Db until the song stops. I think that the information is quite reliable 'cause book is off the record. If you have that song in the casette it may be that the tape has been stretched so much that it sounds half-step too low now.

Hmm thanks, it's just that the song analysis says the intro chords are C#m, which would be odd if the song began I Cm *strokey beard moment*. This is amusing ;-)

I think the analysis mentions it beginning in Cadd69 or something like that... the tab section does put it in C#m but with the indication "tune down half step". Many songs - specially American songs - are done with that "trick". `More than Words` is played in G but tuned down a half step down so it sounds in F#. More examples: Rock N` Roll All Nite (sic), Scorpion`s Dust In The Wind, Brian May`s Business, the entire GnR album and concert catalogue

Ahhh okay that makes sense, thanks. I'm a pianist at heart so I fiddle with the chords in amusing ways anyway. Why can't pianos be tuned up and down it would be so much more useful! thank again :-)

As a matter of fact a very big number of pianos is tuned down a half step, so when you play C it`s actually B and so on
