I'm wondering if this is one of Freddies harder songs to learn on the piano. I'm thinking of learning but looking at the sheet music, it seems tricky? What you reckon are freddies hardest peices to master.

Somebody to Love hard on piano? Yes, if you can't play.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

I think Freddie songs aren't hard on piano. The only tricky part is, in my opinion, that he uses a lot of keys which have lots of black keys on the piano.

I think Brian's songs are a lot harder to play, not the chords per se. But the fact that he decorates his playing with extra notes and stuff. And also that he plays so emotional. I rarely heard anyone play stuff like Save Me and Too Much Love the way it should be played

It depends on how you want to play somebody to love.

If you want to play it with the melody line, it will obviously be more difficult.

But If you play the accompanyment like freddie it should be easier, because he only plays the chords..But then again, do you have the voice to sing with the piano?

The most difficult part of the song is the piano intro, but with some practise you should do it.

of course when comparing freddies piano playing it'll always be dwarfed by classical pianists - so in that sence all pop and rock musicians music is simple!!

but freddie put uniquiness into his playing, sounds great!! not just chords too, that'd be more coldplay

somebody to love is pretty easy. the piano line repeats itself thruout most of the song. its easy and fun, the only part i find tricky is the first measure but after that its easy.

love of my life starts out easy but gets very difficult. bohemian rhapsody is easy if you break it down.


yep they got some complicated ones, but if you want easy, play show must go on :P

I found it quite easy, and I'm half way through Bo Rhap

It's an easy one to learn, if you can play by ear.

Really not a whole lot to it.

Queen songs are not that difficult, but they are really fan to play... it´s a pity I cannot sing in Freddie´s range... ;) =P

Somebody To Love is especially nice! Ab is very comfortable to play in...
