Queen — I want to break free (ver 3) bass tabs

(submitted by kemmotar)
I want to break free (Greatest Hits) — Queen

This is the way I learnt to play it, and it's the first time I transcript a tab

Notes in parentesis are played sometimes but can be played without them, there are variations
on the Riffs 3, 4 and 5, but I'm just keeping it simple for the transcription. Listen to the song to get the rhythm.

Any correction is welcome.
