Hello everybody!

First of all, sorry for my bad english...

The other day, on a shopping, I recorded a fair version of the bohemian rhapsody piano track... so, I have uploaded it to youtube,... I made a lot of mistakes, especially because im not used to play on a real piano, the keys are a lot heavier than my little 4-tones casio ca-100 keyboard... and of course, im not used to the pedals... the fact is that i learn to use them only that day... jajaja but, anyways,...

here is the video if someone want to see it:

in the I thought I have made a mistake, and then, I really have a panic moment, and ended skipping a little part... jajaja... well... please, if any piano player here have any sugestions or critics, please, coment!

and if someone whant to teach me english, do it please!


thank you people!

Very good. Might want to work a little on your dynamics (I prefer to play the start much lighter before the 'real' piano part comes in) and tempo. The rock section ran away with itself and your rhythm kinda disappeared. I find the rock section works better on piano if you play the melody as well.

As you pointed out, there were a few little mistakes (you seemed to get "will not let me go" wrong three times in a row!) but Freddie wrote complex piano parts, so it's no mean feat to be able to play what you can.

Don't be dishearened by my comments, I thought this was really good. Wish I had a grand somewhere to play on!

Not bad at all, with very few mistakes really, apart from a few problems with staying in time and one or two errors in the opera section.

However, the first four chords are, surpisingly, completely wrong. I don't have an instrument to hand, but I think you played Em7 - A7 - D7 - G. Not sure how you came up with these chords, as it should be Bb6 - C7 - F7 - Bb.

7/10

Thanks For the coments Guys! I really have a lot to learn, and I will try... the rock part is very wrong I think, but I was trying to make it sound like the backing track... and that was the closer i get... jejeje, and yes, the four first chords are completly bad, because i figured them out all by myself, and Im not a real musician yet... but thanks, now I know witch ones are the right... I´ll try to get everything right for the next time I go to that shopping... jejeje...


again, thanks guys! I really apreciate your coments, they really help me to improve...
