Ex­am­plE BRIAN MAY ACOUS­TIC STYLE

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

[Bar 37] This is a great Gmaj7 voic­ing. How­ever, as with many play­ers of this gen­er­a­tion Brian is a ‘thumb over the top’ guy so fret this with the thumb hold­ing down the G bass note (sixth string, 3rd fret) and the first, sec­ond and third fin­gers fret­ting a Bm triad (B-d-F#) on the top three strings.

[Bar 41] an­other de­scend­ing triad part to serve as an outro with a sim­ple melody line at the end of this bar to con­nect the chords.
