Hey you guys.

This is an idea I've been thinking about for quite some time now, and now I finally have the resources to make it happen.

I own a small recording and mixing studio, and I was planning on recording a Queen cover song. My idea is to gather around different musicians from all around the world, and record a song overseas.

Musicians interested, please contact me: andresguazzelli@hotmail.com

My original idea is to start recording a nice version of 'LOVE OF MY LIFE'.

I'll need:

* A piano /keyboard player
* A guitar player
* A lead vocalist
* Any other cool instruments to overdub.

I'll be in charge of the mixing and the producing, and for recording, I'll take over multitrack backing vocals and vocal overdubs.

I want the singer to be a female, with a sweet, angelical voice.

For the rest of the musicians: There's no need to copy the original arrangements. If you wanna record arrangements of your own, it's more than welcome. Only requirement is to respect the original key and harmony of the song. If you wanna add a soft percussion solo, it's up to you.

Guitar solos, violins, harp, brasses, piano solos, acoustic guitars, everything is welcome.

I don't think it's a new idea, and it was prolly done before, but I wanna be a part of this.

If there is any musician interested, contact me and send me a sample of your work, if possible. It's a rather ambicious project, but I think we can wrap it up in a month or two :)

My best regards!!!

Then don't contribute. No one's forcing anyone to do anything against their will.

Ignore the cumbubbles and the cheese-dicks mate, and press on with your idea!.

I'd love to try something like this, but as far as guitarists go you'd find better ones than I... still, best of luck!

Cool idea, although I think Love of My Life is a boring and predictable song.

I play: Guitar (electric/acoustic/12string), Bass, Piano, Keyboards, Ukelele, French Horn, Flute, Percussion.

Now, since you're in charge of the recording, will you pay my airplane ticket to Argentina?

Interesting to the musicians among us. Fried and I tried to do something like that, but it was difficult to communicate things sometimes and we kinda fell away from the song. :(
But hey, we can try something.

Okay, I play keyboards, guitars and a bit of bass and drums, too.
I play with a BHM sig guitar, rangemaster-type booster, pete cornish-a-like booster, Vox AC30CC2X and the Vox deacy.
