Queen, "Love Of My Life"
Transcription and Fingering: Renato Bellucci
One of the greatest Rock classics of all times. With a Baroque twist that earned it a place in musical history. The melody is one that will always be a part of our musical history. I was fresh out of high school when Freddy Mercury sang this song at the top of his lungs. Entire stadium audiences would sing with the front man at unison to make Love of my Life one of the most recognizable melodies of its time.
The Baroque intro and small sections that appear throughout the work elevate the piece to greatness and makes Queen into one of the master groups of Pop music.

Keep the right hand fingering as consistent as possible. Typically and whenever possible, the classical guitar player ought to assign a right hand finger to each one of the strings. The a finger will work the first string, the m finger the second and the i finger the third. The Thumb (p) will play the 4th, 5th and 6th strings respectively. Use a Lever to help lift the fingers off the fingerboard more efficiently and precisely. What you do is pass the weight of the hand to one of the left hand fingers and push on it so as to reposition the hand for the upcoming notes to be played.
