hey everyone

i am, well lets just say 'musically challenged', i am absolutely hopeless when it comes to instruments.

see, heres the deal. i have a piano, and i dont really kno how to play a single thing on it.

the only thing i want to play in the entire world is the piano bit from bo-rap that starts just after 'nothing really matters to me, to me' and continues throughout 'mamma, just killed a man'.

does anybody know the notes? i am really no good at reading notes etc, so you'll have to be as simple as you can if your gonna help me. if not, ill have to get piano lessons...

Playing Bo Rhap on the keyboard is exactly the same as playing it on a piano.

Do you know the names of chords or individual notes on the keyboard? Bo Rhap really isn't that difficult to play (at least, not the part you're on about) so if you at least knwo the names of the notes on the keyboard you could be playing the main riff in a matter of minutes.

y'know, i learned to play BoRhap on my piano lately from this amazing music sheet that i have - an adaption of the *entire* song for piano - and it's absolutely awseome;

Roger Taylor once said in this interview that i read that people tend to forget what a brilliant musician Freddie was, amid all the outrageousness and flamboyance, and that he had a fantastic understanding of harmonic structures - i only fully understood that sayind after i played BoRhap. compering that with songs i used to think were really great... well, lets just say my appreciation for Freddie went up through the roof, whereas my appreciation for thoes other songs (most of them) kindda demised...

bottom line - if you have to take piano lessons to play this song - man just do it, it's worth it ;-)


Thank you my darlings, you lot of tarts.
