                Queen - I Can't Live With You
Innuendo
1991

A great song by Queen and I found only one tab for it and since it
was incomplete I'm trying to finish it now.
I used Persechini Bruno's version as a starting point.
I decided to cut the guitar parts into riffs so it is
easier to follow. (At least I hope so...) Anyway, here you go:

Standard tuning (EADGBE)

Notes:                 Chord formations:
/ - slide up           E    (079997)
\ - slide down         A    (x02220) or (577655)
h - hammer-on          Am   (x02210) or (577555)
p - pull-off           B    (x24442) or (799877)
b - bend string        C    (x35553)
r - release            G    (355433)
~ - vibrato            D    (x57775)
                       F#m7 (244252)
Riff 1 (in chorus)
E-----------------------------|
B--9-9--9--9--9\--(2)---------|
G--9-9--9--9--9\--(2)---------| (I can't live with you...)
D--9-9--9--9--9\--(2)---------|
A--7-7--7--7--7\--(0)---------|
E-----------------------------|

D----4----2/3/4----2/3/4------|

Riff 4 (in verse)
E-------------------------------------------|

G-6-----------------------------------------| (I travelled a long...)
D-7---7--7----5/6/7---7--7----5/6/7---7--7--|
A-7---7--7----5/6/7---7--7----5/6/7---7--7--|
E-5-----------3/4/5-----------3/4/5---------|

Riff 5 (in verse)
E-----------------------------|
B-----------------------------|
G-----------------------------| (But nothing's what it seems...)
D----------------------7------|

And so the song goes like this:

(this guitar part at 2:50)

G---/7--/9--/11--/13-------------------------------|
D--------------------------------------------------|
A--------------------------------------------------|
E--------------------------------------------------|
(I think it's actually played by two guitars, one starting from
the G string going to the B, the other is from B to E...)

[CHORUS] at 2:50

[OUTRO] at 3:15
Riff 1  A   B  to fade

Well that's it, not 100% precise but that's the way we play it and 
I think it's fairly close. At least it sounds OK.
There are many guitar fills in the song that I haven't 
transcribed so you gotta figure them out for yourselves.
