Post Song Of The Month #1 Bohemian (Tapsody)Rhapsody
Hi everyone. I’ve been working hard all month trying to get the behemoth of a tune Bohemian Rhapsody down. I can play it all the way thru. It’s far from perfect but I’ve got it down now. My goal is to record it this weekend and post. It won’t be perfect but I’ll post what I have so far. I can always delete the video and repost the improved version when it’s done and polished more in the future

Remember the idea of Song of The Month (SOTM)is to give us each a goal (deadline)and to share our own versions of the same tune. If you who have worked on a tune can post your video here that would be sweet and then we can share ideas and techniques with each other. Videos are best as I love watching other people play as we can learn from the way we play. If you can’t post a video that’s cool, an audio works as well. I’m looking forward to seeing (and hearing)what we all come up with and also borrowing ideas from each other.

I’ll be posting another thread to help us decide on SOTM #2 so start thinking of a tune you might want to work on or if your chops aren’t where you want them to be , suggest a tune for a future SOTM. Every month we will gather suggestions and do a poll to decide the next SOTM to work on and post.

Rad. I love this.

I'm hoping to participate in the future.

How about a poll on the first of the month of 5 potential songs.

The 3 songs I would recommend are:

1. Mad World
2. Imagine
3. Wind Cries Mary

Greased Lightning? ummm The song from "Grease"? All I can say is "not my bag"... and "Yuck" and "Never happening".

I gotta set my Stick up a bit better and I'll take a stab at Bohemian Rhapsody this weekend! THEN you will see what the sound of "suck" is... Anyways, here's a suggestion or three...

1) Chromazone - Mike Stern
2) The King is Half Undressed - Jellyfish
3) Just Got Paid - ZZ Top

Greased Lightning ! Those of us young at the time of Grease are still getting over Olivia Newton Johns black leather outfit ..

I like the idea of Mad World, partly because I might have a chance of working it out. Also seems adaptable to Stick well in my mind.

And did I just see someone suggest Mike Stern :shock: :shock: :shock: :o
