Love of My Life

Words and music by Freddie Mercury

Piano Chords Transcribed by Shane McDonald

This is a piano version of Love of My Life from the ‘A Night at the Opera’ album which I enjoy playing, it is more a hybrid of the piano version on the album and the live guitar version. If you listen to the Samples included you should be able to follow the piano chords and the layout of this version.
