Congratulations, Brian May!

Queen’s Brian May was recently voted Greatest Rock Guitarist of All Time in Total Guitar magazine’s readers' poll.

Responding with characteristic humility, Brian said " the nicest thing about guitar playing is that there IS no “greatest“. We all bring different things to it, even when we are beginning. One of the greatest things about having made the guitar the centre of my life has been that I’ve had the chance to work up close with so many incredible players, and get to know them as musicians, and as human beings. In my mind, you all deserve this award more than I do. But, just for a moment, I’m happy and honoured ... thanks folks."

Here's Brian in action, using three different guitars in one song, including the "Red Special" he made himself.

And here are the chords for the first part of the song. Notice the use of sus4 chords to add variety and interest to the intro.
