Bohemian Rhapsody (Kalimba Tab)

Bohemian Rhapsody is a pop rock song by Queen that released in 1975 and was featured on the album called a night at the opera. Queens real name is Freddy Mercury and even though Freddy Mercury died of Aids on the 24th November 1991, a musical drama film was still made in 2018 about Freddy Mercurys life and he was portrayed by Brian May who is a doppelgänger look alike. The film was not rated as a great movie but the song despite its age is still very popular. 

The song is quite strange but wonderful when compared to modern music, and is made up of soft piano, drums, bass and a mix of harmonies. Freddy was born in Tanzania and had Parsi-Indian parents. He attended English boarding schools in India from the age of 8 years old and eventually moved to Middlesex, England when he was older. Below is a shortened Kalimba Tab version for the song Bohemian Rhapsody so that you can play it on the kalimba. We will be turning this into a full length Kalimba Tab soon but for now, happy playing.
