I know there's a pretty similar thread going on this forum, but I won't interrupt it with this question:

Can you please list up some easy Queen songs to play on the guitar or the piano?

I only play small bits of something that may sound like Queen over and over and over and over again... Thank you!

'Easy' is very relative...personally, I've always considered '39 quite easy to play.

Drums: We will rock you. Bass-bass-snare.

Guitar: Crazy little thing called love(Freddies comp). D-G-A(Am I wrong here?).

Bass: Track 12 on MIH.

Vocals: See "bass".

What about the floor drums on WWRY, along with the snare? And the roll before the solo? ;)

And the guitar for CLTCL isn't only 3 chords. I haven't played it in a while, but as far as I remember, the song uses at least these chords: D (and Dsus4), G, C, Bb, E and A. It isn't difficult to play at all, though. Except for beginners who might have some trouble with Bb - but hey, it'll help them get better at playing barre chords!

To the thread starter: What would you call easy? What can you do with the guitar? If we know roughly what you can play and what you can't, it'll be easy to mention what songs you'll be able to play. :)

You're my best friend, Jesus... Rock it... I'm in love with my car, even AKOM... many.

You have to understand though that learning a song to play its basic harmonies and sing along is one thing, but to play it as it is in the record is another and takes time...

An easy song to play is Bohemian Rhapsody if you have the music, obviously. If anyone wants a copy of the music (vocal line, treble, and bass + chords) or just the chords, email me on neoclassical_wombat@hotmail.com and I'll send em to you. It's not too hard and I taught myself, and I'm a average keyboard player.

Crazy Little Thing Called Love is the only Queen song I can remotely play...

I learned two songs on bass: 1. Father to son (not easy at all) 2. Son and daughter (very easy, and fun to play)

Another very easy song is I want to break free. But you'll need a synth for the solo. I was born to love you is easy too.

From what I can remember:

Tenement Funster
Now I'm Here
Misfire
I'm in love with my car
You're my best friend
'39 (some tricky chords and fast chord changes for a beginner but it's easy)
Long Away
You and I
Sheer Heart Attack
Spread your wings
Sleeping on the sidewalk
Fat bottomed girls
Don't stop me now
Dragon attack (fun to play)
Crazy little thing called love (not that easy for a beginner for reasons said above)
The hero
Cool cat
Man on the prowl
I want to break free
Hammer to fall
One vision
A kind of magic
I want it all
Breakthru (? never tried but...)
These are the days of our lives (same as above)

On Guitar ...Son and daughter. 4th and 6th fret on top string.
The first note is open then the second is closed on the 4th fret. Then open again and closed on the 6th fret.
Then its closed again on the 4th. then
just figure the rythm of it

although my duties here are strictly

 I think son and daughter sounds good tuned down too D...but what dosent?

As for drums i would totally ignore the asinie sugesstions of WWRY.
Try Another one bites the dust its as simple as it gets, the fills on it are overdubed so dont worry about getting them right away. They'll fit fine with practice.
Thinking about it none of Roger's playing is overly complicated there are a exceptions ofcouse, but if ya got a kit just play to the records. Thats how i learned the skins...
