White Man Tab

   
Artist: Queen
Song: White Man
Album: A Day at the Races
Transcribed by: Chris White (shaggymoods70@yahoo.com)
Tuning: Dropped D (DADGBE)

This is one bad ass song.

Little Intro Riff (RIFF ONE):
                 
E|-------------------
B|-------------------
G|-----------------7-
D|-----------------7-
A|-5p3p2-----------5-
D|-------5b-0-3b-0---

Brian May hits this before the next riff starts...

  F5
E|---
B|---
G|---
D|-3-
A|-3-
D|-3-

VERSE RIFF (RIFF TWO):

  The first one is repeated once.

E|--------------------------------------------------
B|--------------------------------------------------
G|-7-7-7\5-7----7-5----5-5-5\3-5---5-3----5-5-5\3---
D|-7-7-7\5-7----7-5----5-5-5\3-5---5-3----5-5-5\3-5-
A|-5-5-5\3-5----5-3----3-3-3\1-3---3-1----3-3-3\1-5-
D|------------------------------------------------5-

During part of the song, there is a variation......
That variation goes a little something like this...

E|-----------------
B|-----------------
G|-7-7-7\5-7-------
D|-7-7-7\5-7-7-7-5-
A|-5-5-5\3-5-7-8-3-
D|-----------------

RIFF THREE:

E|-------
B|-------
G|-----7-
D|-3-0-7-
A|-3-0-5-
D|-3-0---

CHORUS RIFF (RIFF FOUR):
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/q/queen/white_man_tab.html ]
E|-------------------------------------------------
B|-------------------------------------------------
G|-------------------------------------------------
D|-3-3-3-0--3-3-0--3--0--3/5-5-5-5-5-5-8--8-8-12-0-
A|-3-3-3-0--3-3-0--3--0--3/5-5-5-5-5-5-8--8-8-12-0-
D|-3-3-3-0--3-3-0--3--0--3/5-5-5-5-5-5-8--8-8-12-0-

For one part of the chorus, do this:

E|----------------------------------------------------
B|----------------------------------------------------
G|----------------------------------------------------
D|-3-3-3-0--3-3-0--3--0--8--8-8-8--8-8-8--8-8-8--3--5-
A|-3-3-3-0--3-3-0--3--0--8--8-8-8--8-8-8--8-8-8--3--5-
D|-3-3-3-0--3-3-0--3--0--8--8-8-8--8-8-8--8-8-8--3--5-

Then, there will be little things you will need for the song to play
it exactly. For example, there is a pick slide at one part. Before 
the 2nd chorus, palm-mute the bass strings open.

To start the bridge, use this "chord":

E|---
B|---
G|---
D|-5-
A|-5-
D|-5-

Then the bridge is something like this:

E|----------------------------------------
B|----------------------------------------
G|-5-5-5\3-5------------------------------
D|-5-5-5\3-5--5-5-5/3-5--5-5-5-3--5-5-5-3-
A|-3-3-3\1-3--5-5-5/3-5--5-5-5-3--5-5-5-3-
D|------------5-5-5/3-5--5-5-5-3--5-5-5-3-

That's enough, don't you think?
Have fun.
If you don't know where each riff goes, and how many times to play it,
I pity you. 

Any questions or comments?
