CRAZY LITTLE THING CALLED LOVE
Words and music by Freddie Mercury



Transcription from Sept 92 of Guitar School
 
Three guitars here, two acoustics doubling each other (denoted by gtr 1) and one 
clean electric (try single coil bridge position - gtr 2). The bass guitar part 
here is VERY important - it makes the song. I'm including the electric fills and 
the version by Gary Chapman has a solo which looks slightly wrong. 

^ = downstroke; u = upstroke
^ = Bend (as well)
.(above note) = Stacatto (v.short)
s = sustain (ie hold)
~ = vibrato
h = hammer on ; p = pull off
r = release bend
QB = Bend by 1/4 tone ; FB = Bend by full tone
SB = Bend by semi-tone
* = Repeat music inside stars
*

INTRO:

      ^ u ^ u   u ^ u   ... simile (the same)

		Crazy Little Thing Called Love
		         by Queen

	  D			G	 C	   G
This thing,  called love, I just  can't  handle it,

	   D			G	   C	   G
this, thing,  called love, I must, get round to it,

	D	Bb	      C		   D
I anit ready,  Crazy little thing called love.

	  D			G	C		G
This thing, called love, it cries, in craddle at night,

     D			   G			C	G
it swings, it jives, it shakes, all overlike a jelly-fish,

	   D	  Bb		C	      D
I kinda like it, Crazy little thing called love.

	      G		 C			  G
There goes my baby, she knows how to rock and roll,

		D		   G		A
She drives me crazy, she gives me hot and cold fever,

	   F					E		A
then she leaves me in a cool, cool sweat.

	     D			G	C	G	   D
I gotta be cool, relax, get hip, get on my tracks, take a back seat, 
hitch-hike

      G			    C	   G		   D
And take a long ride on my motor bike until I'm ready,

Bb		C	     D
Crazy Little thing called love.
