Fun Machine Took A Shit Died Tab

   
This is a rare Queen's song. It's really good. The tuning is rather important to playing
the song correct. This is the version on the vinyl, not on "Over the Years...", which is
more complicated and a little better, but i figure more people will hear the actual
recording; assuming it comes out. anyway...

The Fun Machine Took a Shit and Died  

Tuning: 
E-G-D-G-B-E  

Keyboard intro (for guitar)

i love this band. who else would work Robert Mitchum into their lyrics? this may be
missing a thing or two (not much, however, this took for fucking ever), but the
recording is really muffled and muddy, but it's pretty accurate. enjoy!
