PD: Easy chords20 Mar 2003 12:40
A new section is planned for simplified chord transcriptions.
For those who can't handle "stupid" chords like diminished, suspended, etc...
the new section will provide chord transcriptions without such chords: only
major and minor chords, preferably with simple open chords. Songs will be transposed to guitar friendly keys.

Since the last post I had not much time for this section, but soon or later I will do it.

Unfortunately I had no time and energy for this project. I hope soon or later I will.

One more thing: a nice quote from a german language forum. I like to read such things, I though I share that with you:

"Queen finde auch ich einfach klasse. Ich habe zwar durch meine Eltern recht früh Queen gehört, aber eigentlich nur, wenn sie es haben laufen lassen. Als ich irgendwann neugierig wurde und sehen wollte, was mein Vater an dieser Gruppe so klasse fand, nahm ich die Innuendo mit in mein Zimmer, sperrte mich ein und hörte zum ersten Mal bewusst Queen. Nach Innuendo drückte ich erst einmal den Stopknopf, weil ich überwältigt und einfach platt war. Was mir da geboten wurde war mehr als nur Musik, es war eine Reise. So vielseitig und virtuos, so etwas war mir gänzlich neu. Bis dahin hörte ich so ziemlich jeden Müll, weil es mich nicht die Bohne gejuckt hatte, aber nach dieser Platte ward das anders, denn ich lernte, dass Musik mehr kann, als nur den Weg zur Schule subjektiv zu verkürzen. Musik kann SELBST bewegen, somit selbst der Weg zur Schule sein. Das war vor, ääh, ich glaube 4 Jahren. Seitdem spiele ich selbst Musik und bin auch irgendwie ausgeglichener. Die Musik muss nicht böse sein, damit man ein Ventil findet und sich abreagieren kann, sie kann so viel, wie wir uns das im Normalfall überhaupt nicht vorstellen können.
Queen haben mit ihrer Musik, wie ich finde, sehr viel übermittelt, in ihren Stücken ist mehr als nur Noten."

I update here my old simplified transcriptions.

Bohemian Rhapsody

Is this the real life
Is this just fantasy
Caught in a landslide
No escape from reality
Open your eyes
Look up to the skies and see
I'm just a poor boy,I need no sympathy
Because I'm easy come,easy go,
A little high,little low,
Anyway the wind blows,doesn't really matter to me,
To me

 G         Em
Mama,just killed a man,

Put a gun against his head,
 Am                         D
Pulled my trigger,now he's dead,

Mama, life had just begun,

    Am                               D

Too late,my time has come,
Sends shivers down my spine
Body's aching all the time,
Goodbye everybody-I've got to go
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth

Spare him his life from this monstrosity
Easy come easy go-,will you let me go
Bismillah! No-,we will not let you go-let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go-let him go

Right on down forty-second street
Way down down town dreamer's town

Oh take me take me take me
I'm your plaything now
You make my life worthwhile with the slightest smile
Or destroy me with a barely perceptible whisper
Gently take me remember I'll be dreamin' of my baby
At the dreamer's ball

Take me hold me
Remember what you told me

     ...A              E        A   F
You'd meet me at the dreamer's ball

I'll meet you at the dreamer's ball

Speak any tongue
But for God's sake we need

Let me hear the words of love
Despacito mi amor
Let me know this night and evermore

This room is bare
This night is cold
We're far apart and I'm growing old
But while we live
We'll meet again

So then my love We may whisper once more
It's you I adore

Las palabras de amor
Let me hear the words of love
Despacito mi amor
Touch me now
Las palabras de amor
Let us share the words of love
For evermore evermore
For evermore

Well, altrough this project is a great help for begginers and maybe something that looks fun,  i wouldn't consider in taking it any bigger,  i mean, there are lot of simplifided tabs of Queen on the internet and even more tons of books that specialize in just chords and melody and in most of the cases they very simple ,   the fact of transposing songs into "guitar friendly keys" i think it can be done easily with a capo or usung some brain.  The section looks insteresting but i would advise to put more attention into new guitar tabs or correction of the old ones than repeating the classics in a easier way.
10.PD 08 Sep 2005 12:53
Recently I'm concentrating on the song analysis project. Of course the correction is important, but my time does not enables me to do all the thing that I ought to do. These chords were written two years ago, and since then I could not continue them.
For now I cant tell when I can publish more corrections.
11.woody 05 Dec 2005 15:51
This is more of an easy arrangement for a begginner guitarist for learning such a great song. It doesnt matter whether you put it anywhere or whatever, but if some passing ranger stroles by and sees it, it may prove useful for them to make it an acoustic version of the song performance. just maybe

--The Prophet's Song--

An arrangement, with chords, for one acoustic in drop D tuning.




Dm C  Dm
Oh oh people of the earth
Listen to the warning the seer he said
F          C          Bb      Dm
Beware the storm that gathers here
Listen to the wise man


I dreamed I saw on a moonlit stair
              C           D5   G    Am
Spreading his hand to the multitude there
A man who cried for a love gone stale
    E5                 Am      Asus4
And ice cold hearts of charity bare
I watched as fear took the old man's gaze
             C        Gm       Dm
Hopes of the young in troubled graves

   Am     Bb     G/B       C
'I see no day' I heard him say
   Am/C#       Dm      B/D#*  Em Am
So grey is the face of every mortal

Dm C  Dm
Oh oh people of the earth!
'Listen to the warning' the prophet he said
F            C       Bb         Dm
For soon the cold of night will fall
Summoned by your own hand

Dm C  Dm
Ah ah children of the land
Quicken to the new life take my hand
F       C        Bb        Dm
Fly and find the new green bough
Return like the white dove

He told of death as a bone white haze
Taking the lost and the unloved babes
Late too late all the wretches run
These kings of beasts now counting their days
From mother's love is the son estranged
Married his own his precious gain
The earth will shake in two will break
And death all round will be your dowry

Oh oh people of the earth
Listen to the warning the seer he said
For those who hear and mark my words
Listen to the good plan

Dm  C   Fsus4  F
Oh, oh, oh,    oh
Fsus4             F
and two by two my human zoo

They'll be running for to come
Gm                             Dm   C
Running for to come out of the rain

   G                   Em Bm
Oh flee for your lives    who heed me not
              G                 D Dsus2 D C
Let all your treasures make you
G                  Em Bm
Fear for your life    deceive you not
             G                  D
The fires of hell will take you
       F              Csus2
Should death await you

Oh Oh,  People can you hear me?
And now I know ... that you can hear me.
And now I know...

Bbm                              Bbm7
The Earth will shake in two will break,
The Earth will shake in two will break.

Death all around....

Now I Know, Now I Know, Now I Know, Now I Know, Now I Know,
Now I Know, Now I Know,Now I Know Now I Know Now I Know
