These Are The Days Of Our Lives Guitar Lesson – Queen

In this These Are The Days Of Our Lives guitar lesson video, I will show you all of the chords and guitar solo for this great song by Queen.

The tuning is standard tuning, E A D G B E.

Mostly written by drummer Roger Taylor, "These Are The Days Of Our Lives" has some great chord progressions. I will take you through each of the chord progressions in the order that each appears on the original recording.

Keep in mind that I am doing an arrangement of the synth chords for the guitar and not trying to play every little fill or lick that Brian May add during the verse and chorus sections. Since this is mostly a synth driven song, I will be focusing on playing those chords instead since they will more closely resemble the overall harmony for the song.

I will also take you through Brian May's amazing guitar solo note-for-note. Part of this solo has a delay effect added to the guitar lines, and I will explain that in the video lesson. This is a really beautiful solo and is a lot of fun to play.

I hope you guys enjoy this in-depth breakdown on this great Queen song!

    Queen song request:

    ‘Need Your Loving Tonight’

    Fairly simple song, but the solo trips me up.
