Welcome to this Bohemian Rhapsody Acoustic Guitar Tutorial by Queen! This video will show you how to play the acoustic chords for the first half of the song which is great for singers or beginners who want to strum and sing along. The strum patterns are fairly basic in this rendition, the most difficult part will be some of the tricky chord shapes. If you were looking for an electric solo or fingerstyle version of playing Bohemian Rhapsody then I also have lessons for those version below!
