Yeah, hi. I'm totally new here and I know nothing about this community, but I'm happy to join it. :)

I wanted to get more views for my Queen piano cover videos on YouTube, so I decided to come here and post them.

So, I'm a big fan of Queen and I've been arranging many of their songs for piano, both hits and non-hits. I recorded these covers and uploaded them to YouTube recently. Here they are:

Bohemian Rhapsody
The Show Must Go On
'39
Bicycle Race
Don't Stop Me Now
Love Of My Life
You Take My Breath Away
We Are The Champions
Jealousy
Mustapha
Who Wants To Live Forever
Killer Queen
Play The Game

New:
Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy
Made In Heaven
Too Much Love Will Kill You
Mother Love

Comments are appreciated. More is to come. I'm constantly learning new songs and recording once in a while, and then posting them here.

It must be thrilling to have your ability. You should be proud.
Here's what I thought:

BORAP - Freddie incarnate

Mustapha - Freddie prodigy

TSMGO - too rushed in parts, so emotion not coming across properly

BR - dashed off too quickly again missing the opportunity to play up the playfulness inherent to the song.

Just my opinions.

Can you please cover Who wants to live Forever?

Thank you


I'll be right behind you, right until the ends of the Earth

Yeah, I later noticed that I played some of the songs way too fast.

And yeah, I totally forgot Who Wants To Live Forever. Thanks for reminding, I'm going to record and upload that, too.

Thanks for your constructive comments. :)

queenUSA wrote: Wow! Thanks for honoring my request. That was 4:15 of sheer musical
bliss. Your phrasing is superb when you're unhurried. You have a
natural gift.

How long have you been playing? Did Queen fuel your desire to learn music?

Thanks. And no problem, I had learned the song already, I had just forgotten to record it, too. :)

I've played piano since 2000, but I became a Queen fan when I heard Bohemian Rhapsody from radio about five yours ago. I soon arranged the song for piano. I've learned the rest of the songs that I've recorded during the last two years.

Wait a minute... you've "arranged the song for piano"??? That IS a piano on the original version.

In some parts, yes, the piano goes like in the original versions, but I call them arrangements because I also play the singing and guitar parts. By the way, I learned all of these by ear. I did have some sheet music for the piano parts of Bohemian Rhapsody, though.

Added links to my newest uploads (Killer Queen, Play The Game).
