Queen piano pieces in my opinion are awesome. So rhythmic plus they fit the songs well with impecible timing and accompiniment.

I can play Bo Rhap, Dont Stop me Now, Love of my Life, Seven Seas of Rhy, Black Queen, bits of Killer Queen, Somebody to Love and Loverboy.

My absolute favourite though is Lap of the Gods Revisited. If you can play piano, then learn that one, its class. :-)

Awesome...I can only really play Bo Rhap and You Take my Breath Away...oh and It's A Hard Life.

I enjoy playing Bo Rhap.

Do you know where one can get midi files with the piano tracks accurately transcribed? I've got hundreds, but only a few are worthwhile. I would love to play In the Lap of the Gods (revisited)

I can play a great version of Bo Rhap in its entirety - that is my favorite. i also lOVEEE to play You Take My Breath Away, Love of My Life, You're My Best Friend and My Melancholy Blues.

Freddie's songs are so fucking great to play on the piano, the man was so talented. now i am trying to learn The Millionaire Waltz but this one's pretty hard. anyone's playing it?


Thank you my darlings, you lot of tarts.

Yeah I know Bo Rhap out my head by now, always great fun to play tho.

Thanks for the link, will check it out, as for free midi converters: try MidiNotate Composer. It's only a 30-day trial, but the program is rather silly, you can just set your system clock back. If you want to take the sneaky route lol.

Yeh. But I forgot to set it back lol. Do you know any other 'sneaky' tricks to get it back once the trial is ended?

Also, I was wondering, which piano pieces sound good on their own?

Bohemian Rhapsody does rather, since it's such a recognisable tune and it varies itself a fair amount. Love of My Life is another nice one to play.

But for example, a piece like Play the Game, it sounds terribly bland with just piano.

Lap of the Gods does on its own, so does Seaven Seas of Rhye.

Bo Rhap is great when arranging.

Sometimes it does wonders to merge a vocal track and a piano track of a midi -- for parts of Love of My Life, for example, or Made in Heaven -- but often it gets too complicated. So you have to be careful, sometimes the thing expects one to have eleven fingers lol.

Yes, why as a matter of fact there are two links to a Made in Heaven midi on that website you suggested to me. Unless you are talking about a different version?

Oh yes, Nevermore is fabulous to play! One must merge the vocal track, though. I heard a rather nice MP3 that was a piano-only version of Nevermore.
