Hey, thanks for coming to HowToPlayAnySong.com. If you’re watching this video, it means you’ve clicked on Bohemian Rhapsody, Queen‘s classic epic of epicness. We’re going to be learning the intro to this song. Something you might not realize about this recording is it was recorded pre-digital era back in the old day when they were recording on these giant tape machines. And they held the whole song together with a drumstick click track, which is pretty crazy. Are you ready to learn the song?
Let’s lock it in. Intro So we’re going to start by learning the intro to this song. It’s got a really cool left-hand crossover part, but we’re going to start by learning the right hand of the song.
I’m going to show you the chords first. We’re in the key of B flat.
We’re going to start on a B flat chord in the third position, which is an F, a B flat, and a D. How To Install Dj Max Trilogy Crack there. We then go to a G minor chord, which is just moving the thumb up to a G and going G, B flat, D.
And we’re going to go to a C minor chord in the third position, which is a G, a C, and an E flat. And then we’re going to go to an F suspended chord, which is basically the same chord again, a G, a C, and E flat, and then we resolve to an F chord in the second position, which is an A, a C, and an F.
That’s the first part of the chords of that first verse. Now the second half goes B flat, F, B flat, D, G minor, which is just moving that thumb up, G, B flat, D.
We’re going to do this little chromatic walk-down from a C minor chord, so let’s go to that same C minor chord we learned, G, C, E flat, and you see where my middle finger is there. I’m just going to move it down to the B, down to the B flat, and now we’re going to kind of do a slight change, A, C, E flat, and then we end on an A flat chord, A flat, C, E flat. And that little section is really dramatic sounding. It’s kind of like this.
Okay, and we’re going to do that again, so stay with me. So here’s what the chords are going to be doing. We’ve learned the chords. We want to do this little, kind of operatic offsetting counter rhythm, and it goes like this. You see what I’m doing is I’m striking the chord.
That’s our B flat chord. And then I’m arpeggiating it from the bottom to the top, so the arpeggio goes F, B flat, D on the B flat chord like this. And the last part of it is we’re going between a D and an F like that. So when you put it together, it looks like this.
Now when we apply that pattern to all the chords in slow motion, it looks like this. One, two, three, four. One, two, three, four. One, two, three, four.
One, two, three, four. One, two, three, four. One, two, three, four. One, two, three, four. One, two, three, four. One, two, three, four.
Are you getting it? Let’s try it at a regular speed. One, two, three, four. Now that we’ve learned how the right-hand chords work, let’s learn the cool part.
Like I said before, there’s this cool crossover that happens when you play this song. It’s actually pretty simple, but it’s going to impress the heck out of your friends. So let’s learn it right now. If you follow me here on HowToPlayAnySong.com, you know I like to use octaves frequently in the left hand, and that’s what we’re going to be doing here. I’ve got my pinky on a low B flat, and then one B flat up, I’m on the thumb, okay? So what we’re going to be doing is striking those chords, the first chord is a B flat. And then we’ll have our right hand in place, and this left hand is going to simply cross over and land on a high G in octaves, okay?
So our left hand up here in the right-hand territory, and we’re going to hit a G, and then an F. So again that’s low B flat, and then we fly all the way up here to the G and the F, okay? And that’s the pattern that’s going to continue. We’re going to hit the low chord, then fly up to our notes, okay? So let’s dive into this. We’ve already got the B flat, G, F, then we’re going to hit a G. We’re going to fly up here to the A, and the G.
If you’re like me, you sit right here. You might have to lean back to get to those notes, okay?
And then we’re going to go C, all the way up to the D’s, and then a C, and then we’re going to strike an F chord, and strike it again. No crossover on the F. And then on the second half, we’re going to go B flat, back up to the G, F, G minor, so the G notes down here, up to the A, G. And then the way this whole progression ends, is we’re going to walk down chromatically to an A flat. It looks like this. And those notes are C, B, B flat, A, A flat.
All right, are you ready to try it in slow motion? I know it seems scary crossing over. It seems unnatural, inhumane even. But remember as long as you’re confident on those notes you’re landing on, it’s really not that difficult at all.
