I have always wanted to play this song
I guess you could say I have a "bucket list of songs to learn and play at a gig" and Bohemian Rhapsody is definitely one of them.
I think the genius of this song is that despite its longer than standard radio airplay length and complicated sections, it still remains one of the most popular songs of all time. Many just really connect with this masterpiece.
I had only 3 days to learn this song from scratch before I was performing with the Pink Vs Lady Gaga Tribute show last weekend. The pressure was on! and my respect for Brian May and his guitar work in this song is even greater having now learnt it and performed it.
I gotta tell you, it was wonderful sharing the stage with Jimmy, Grant, Kim, Asabi and Emily to perform this track and well, I had to take a couple of cameras to document it to. Enjoy!
