Spread Your Wings, Piano Intro, Hammersmith 1979

The intro starts with a Dsus4 when is then resolved back to the D

Freddie plays a bass note of 2 D notes on the octave, very similar to You’re My Best Friend in it’s pattern.

The chords then alternate between (listen to the intro to get the timings)
