So, finally got round to trying to exorcise this damn song that's been sat on my laptop for quite some time.
I recorded the thing well over a year ago and filmed some 'spoof' parody parts about 6 months ago. (I'd like to point out that I have since lost 2 stone - chubby RT)
Anyway.....I recorded everything you hear on the track with the exception of Rogers drum track.
I was going to use this as the intro performance for my part 2 of 'Long Away' You Tube lesson but just needed it off my mind.
Any comments, good or bad or bad are welcomed. It was all recorded with the cheapest possible way. A £9 vocal mic, cheap amp, battered homemade RS and cheap bass into Adobe Audition 1.5.
Got to say I love it !!!
The Laptop with Recording Software in the back ruins the Vintage touch a bit...
Is there an Innuendo in the Video in that, that in Bri's room there's a Anatomy image ( Doctor/ aside the fact he is no medic man)) on the wall ?
Man, that's about as perfect as it gets. Bloody well done. What's most impressive is the backing vocals.
And interestingly enough, your voice is more similar to Freddie's than Brian's !
You gotta send this to Brian.
Such kind words......I'm very floored!!!
I'm in no way a singer. It IS very lazy and cheap methods and gear. I'm sure lots more could sound as good doing it the same way.
Me sending it to BM??? Erm......not me m'lud.
Seriously, utterly fantastic. Matt, sent you a PM but it's from an old e-mail account so not sure if you got it as I won't get a reply. Just wanted to say that you're supremely talented, and Long Away is top 3 in my Queen faves and have always wanted to play it properly and thanks to you, I can. Well, I can't as I have zero talent but if I did, I'd be able to play it properly due to your work :) Everyone on this site should watch this and pass it on.
