Hey, I was just introduced to Queen by a friend, and was looking at some track lists to some albums I wanted to buy on internet. And I see that both "Queen I" and "Queen II" has the song Seven Seas Of Rhye on them. Is it the same track, or is one of them a live version or something..?

I just wanted to get this out while we were on the subject. Freddie plays the piano amazingly in this song. Watch him do it live... its awesome!

yeah, no kidding! how does he do that?! - i mean, sure, he's a brilliant musician (we all know that), but blimey, i play a bit of keyboard but the pace at which he gets that right hand across the keys is incredible - on the Wembley '86 DVD i can't tell whether he hits one key with his thumb and then another with his pinky and so on, or whether he hits both thumb and pinky at the same time...anybody find me somebody who knows?

Hehehe, I can play it on my keyboards... Although not for tóó long, because my fingers will start going their own way.

The fingers to play it with are

1 2 and 4 with the thumb being 1

Alternate between the chord of D and G twice in the pattern of the riff, do the D one more time and then hit the note D twice before repeating the process.

If you are learning it, start slowly so you can get the pattern in your head. After that its fairly easy to play. {a similar song (in speed and technique) is the Van Halen keyboard solo from Jump.}
