    Hey all - though you might enjoy this....

    Here's a clip from my latest band, Break Free (a tribute act for Queen + Paul Rogers - www.breakfreetribute.co.uk)

    We took on Bohemian Rhapsody Wednesday night.....

    The person singing the ludicrously high parts is the keys player, just out of shot on the right ;-)

    Cheers,
    J

    I'm sitting here in my office in Palma de Mallorca, and am rocking out to a cup of espresso whilst listening to and watching your clip. You done justice to a really tricky cover - enhorabuena!:banana

    Cheers for all the great comments guys.

    Thanks man, for the Queen stuff it's my hollow Warmoth Strat (with Bare Knuckle Apache single coils), running through a BJF Pine Green Compressor and an MI Audio Crunchbox, into the clean channel of a Rivera R55. I'll kick in either an Xotic BB or RC for solo boosts.

    Yeah, it's all clean channel of the Rivera. I run BB -> Crunchbox -> RC.
    Don't ask me why that works, but I tested every combination of the 3 pedals and that was the clear winner ;-)

    Really nice stuff, covering my favorite band of all time. Great guitar work, and the lead singer really nails his stuff!

    I'm not meaning to sound offensive but do you say your a Queen+Paul on the grounds of you love Queen but don't want to immitate and have a risk of ruining Freddie or just on the grounds of you just love Queen + Paul.

    BTW in some points you do sound like Paul
