Hi there community !

I have made the full bass line of The Millionaire Waltz.
As Brian May said on an interview, his favourite bass line by Deacon, is The Millionaire Waltz.

Please check it out:

And please leave a comment, and if you liked it, just rate it.

Thank you very much for your attention.


John Deacon, best bass player in the universe !!!

Thank you Tom !!!

I will soon get some time, so I will work on my new blog.
I will post the youtube video, the Full HD video for download, and the bass tab. So people can get all the necessary data to get the bass line of each song.
When I have it finished I will post it here.

I will post two more videos on youtube this weekend:

-Great King Rat
-Bring Back That Leroy Brown

And if I have time left, who know Seven Seas of Rhye.

I'm really glad you liked it.

=)

Excellent job.  You've got the chops and you've captured the feeling perfectly.

Thank you very much guys... =)

And Mooghead, I don't think it's the same as others.
You do not know the work it is to have the final video. Recording, editing, synchronizing, etc...

I think you could take a look and comment about the video if you liked it or not, it really helps instead of just coming and saying "Nah, I have seen many already"... 


Thank you guys for your kind words.
I really appreciate the inniciative to come and post a reply !  =)

Cheers !

Superb, EddieBass.  Just out of curiousity, why do think John Deacon is God (I agree in a bass sense BTW?)  Chops, sense of rhythm, choice of notes, interesting to here opinions from musicians.

Hi man... =)

For me he is the best bass player in this world. Why?

Because of CRIATIVITY.
It's a thing that just a few of the bassist have.
Another important thing is his humbleness, his patience on answering his fans, TV etc... Even being so shy.

I play the bass today most because of John's bass lines. I've learned a lot with him.

=)

Thank you.

That's awesome.  I know that John is pretty reclusive, but I would hope that he would catch wind of something like this.  I can't imagine anything more meaningful than having your work influence someone else.  I think he is grossly underrated in the world of bass playing because he always played for the song.  Others could play super fast and were flashier, but I'm sure true musicians recognize how wonderful John Deacon was.

If you like creative bass players, I hope you're also studying Geddy Lee, Chris Squire, Larry Graham, Nate Watts, and James Jamerson... all from various parts of the spectrum.
