Breakthru

Words and music by Queen

Transcribed by Philipp (PraxisNothaft@t-online.de) 

Some important notes:
A big part of the bass-parts in that song is done with synths.
So I made a SYNTH ARRANGEMENT for five-string bass for all those parts where 
there isn't a "real" bass. For Johns real bass parts you only need a four-string.

0:35 SYNTH ARRANGEMENT
