Queen’s iconic hit ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ is arguably the most discussed, revered, studied, and covered Rock anthem of the last four decades. Witten and released by Queen in 1975, it is a timeless classic that holds up even today. This song has has been covered by artists such as Axl Rose, Elton John, P!nk, even The Muppets and The Munich Symphonic Sound Orchestra JUST to name a few.
It is a song that transcends all genres and touches the hearts of people from all walks of life. One of many things that makes this cherished song so amazing is the many layers of instrumentation and harmonies played throughout this masterpiece, but trying to cover this classic song is certainly no one-person job! Or is it?
What you’re about to watch is Youtube guitarist Dr. Viossy take this multi-instrumented and multi-voiced song and perform it on one guitar in one take.
Dr. Viossy gives a classical and VERY captivating interpretation to this timeless rock anthem. Bohemian Rhapsody is my personal favorite song, and I never thought I could love the song anymore than I already do, but I stand corrected! And if there’s one thing I know for sure it’s that Freddie Mercury would be so proud!
