hi people,

it was really fun tackling all those interesting brian may guitar orchestrations..and also all the cool phasing vocals (especially during the chorus) and harmonies heheh
i hope my singing doesnt ruin it all haha :icon_roll

The vox aint bad............miles beyond what I could try. On the backing vocals, you might try double tracking over and over to make them sound fuller. I read an interview with 10CC once where they said that they would double track and bounce sometimes over a hundred tracks to make the vocals full. You gotta admit it would be an interesting experiment. I thought about trying it, but 100 copies of my voice is just as bad as one. :wutblau:

Damn, Andrew, I gotta give you a couple of these guys -->:bowdown: :bowdown: .

I don't give those out very often, as I save them for when I really mean it.
One of them is for taking on such an ambitious songs (both vocally and guitar-wise). This is by far my fave Brian May solo "orchestration" (as you put it), and has served as inspiration for me regarding writing guitar harmonies. The other Bow-down smiley is for your performance. Granted this probably needs more work in order to attain perfection (if possible, doing a Queen cover), but what a great start! And if I remember correctly, you are merely 14 or 15 years old! Hell, I didn't even start playing guitar until 21. You are already light years ahead of me. Keep it up! Great job. :thumbup:
