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

Screw that.

I'd rather revive the similar idea from years ago, to do "We Will Rock You".

I could play a mean drums for that >:D

TOTO fans nearly did the same thing and recorded a whole new song for their favourite band - in style of the band´s sound.

You can listen to it at i-tunes.
