We Are The Champions

Performed by Queen
Written by Freddie Mercury 1975.

Tablature by Graham Lamb  at lamgooi@eon.net.au

This is a version that is adapted for a guitar without a piano. There is a bit of chord picking
to try and reproduce the piano melody and a couple of lead licks but it's mainly just strumming.
Some of the chords used are very different to the piano chords shown in other transcriptions.
This is because many chord voicings played on a piano are impossible to reproduce accurately on
a guitar but if you play along with the song using these chords you should find that they sound
pretty close. One or two of them could probably be altered slightly and if anyone knows a better
way to play any of them please let me know. If anyone has any suggestions or would like the lead
guitar transcription email me at - lamgooi@eon.net.au
