Somebody to Love Five Live version as performed at the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert in 1992. The Somebody to Love Five Live version is very similar to the album version of Somebody to Love. The most obvious change to the song is a key change, from Ab to G (down 1 semi-tone).

Individual Notes when used are shown in square brackets, 
i.e. [G] indicates the note G not the Chord.
