I've always wondered and it might have been discussed here before but....Is the instrument at the beginning of "Father To Son" not a synth? If not, what is it?

I'm talking about the descending arpeggio that starts the song. There's no way it is a guitar.

The Deaky Amp, Red Special, genius of Brian May, there's also piano in Father To Son.

It IS a guitar, probably with the Deaky Amp. That makes the sound of Queen unique.

Ravenetta by 'voice' do you mean Freddie's vocal line in general or a specific section or backing vocal? Not that I'll probably know, just curious to which part you're referring.

Freddie opened his mouth and sang in that voice, I think. Stop me if I'm getting too technical.


This can't end well.
