No, but i think the start of the solo from DTSH sounds very much like the beginning of the solo from WWTLF (the synth part)

It's actually not a guitar, if I recall. It's the default sound that plays when you turn on a Korg Synth.
But I'm probably wrong, my memory is hazy on this. I thought that one of the Innuendo tracks features a Korg 'on-sound' at the start.

What are *you* talking about?
The guy mentioned the 'guitar' part at the start of DTSH. I reckon it's not a guitar part, but rather the sound of a Korg M1 turning on.

It's really not that hard to understand is it? Sorry if I flubbed my first post somehow.

I don't think he means the harmonics in the intro/outro, righT?

"He?? HE???"
"See, you're laughing already".

I'm not sure what part of the song you're talking about. I thought you said at the start of the song, and I remember hearing those harmonics came from a Korg.
As I also said earlier on - I'm probably wrong. Investigate!

Mass confusion alert.

Zebonka: the default Korg sound that you're talking about is the wishy-washy synthy sound you hear at the start, not the (obvious) harmonics played by Bri at the start and end of the song.

All Queen's People is talking about a 4 'note' drum-fill that Rog plays at the end of the guitar solo in Don't Try So Hard.

That fill does indeed sound nearly identical to the very first drum-fill Rog plays about 7 seconds into Show Must Go On.

I think he just does a flam on 4 different and progressively deeper toms. And that's it.

Was that so hard?
