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!!!
Andrés Guazzelli

Take the first part of your sentence and the last part, and think about it for a second.

'You are gay', and then - 'it has to be a man'.

I think you've got issues, guy.

Sing like a woman. If you can fool him, then you win.

I'll make it happen.

Victor, feel free to record something and send it to me. It's easier to find a woman to sing a song like LOML than to find a guy who could do an astonishing vocal version of it.

If you're up to, then you're welcome.

I think I can handle the lead singing duties, and bring some of my own hits into the band.
