Stone Cold Crazy kills me every time I hear it - what a kick-ass song! It almost seems too fast to even comprehend. It stops. It starts. It pauses, and does it even change key? How difficult is it to play?


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.

It's not as tough as you might think, guitar-wise. The drums are pretty movin' though!

It's one of our favorites to play live. For vocals and drums it's pretty fast, but not that hard!

I know they couldn't play Dead On Time live because Fred couldn't handle vocals at such speed

Yeah, I've played guitar and bass guitar for like forever, but the pain never seems to end for me!

Oh, the pain is mainly there when I play electric guitar, and my fingers never really seem to get used to the metal strings. Same with the bass, the pain never really went away... how sad. But I keep playing for the same reason as you, it just sounds real good. ;)

Pain after a few months of playing seems strange. Unless I spend several hours with a song using a lot of bends and slides and so on, I don't get sore any longer.

Granted, I've been playing for 17 years...

My band plays it as an intro. Its not that hard if you play it live. I play drums and I sing SCC. Its easy to lose timing but its still fun to play. Especially if you add cowbell haha.


Well here's my counter-offer... do I have to kill you? What if I were just to kick the ever loving shit out of you?

Man, if only you were around back in the day, Queen could have had your band play it live for them!


life is like a box of chocolates...stuffed with individuals.

Drumming and singing SCC at the same time should be easier. I need the hi-hat on my monitor to be able to stay synch with the beat of the drummer. If you drum and sing it yourself, you automatically stay in the same beat. :)
