Staying Power - Queen Guitar Pro Tab
Downloads & Mirrors
"Staying Power" is the first track on the first side of Queen's 1982 album Hot Space. It was written by lead singer Freddie Mercury and is notable as being the only Queen song to have a horn section ( which was arranged by Arif Mardin). The song is driven by a funk-styled synth-bass riff (played by Mercury on an Oberheim OB-X) beginning in D minor and modulating to E minor throughout the song. John Deacon doesn't play bass on this song—instead playing rhythm guitar on a Fender Telecaster.
