Here at C3 we’re suckers for cute pack themes and names, and this week farottone takes the cake. These seven awesome Queen songs, from their back-to-back hit albums A Night at the Opera (1975, ft. “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Death on Two Legs”, “You’re My Best Friend”) and A Day at the Races (1976, ft. “Tie Your Mother Down”, “Somebody to Love”, “Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy”), are a must-have for players of all instruments. farottone says: “This pack hides a number of great songs most people mey not be familiar with: try it and you won’t be disappointed! All guitar parts are done by or based on charts by Banzai85, same goes for tempo mapping.”
Author comments for this week’s releases:
- “The Prophet’s Song” – farottone says, “Classic Queen hard rock songs, this is arguably the most difficult song to FC on harmonies. The middle section is a brutal series of 3 vocal parts delayed and complex harmonies.” (He’s not kidding — I helped playtest these vocals charts, and hoo boy.)
- “Seaside Rendezvous” – farottone says, “So, this is an incredible little song. If you listen to it I promise you it will be stuck on your ears. It’s amazing on keys and it features a kazoo-type solo on vocals! On that note, the entire solo is done on vocals by Mercury and Taylor.”
- “Sweet Lady” – farottone says, “One of the most hard rock songs of Queen’s catalogue, it’s got a great guitar part and drums get challenging at the end.”
- “Teo Torriatte” – farottone says, “Finally you’ll be able to sing in Japanese even if you don’t love underage girl in panties or weird giant animals!”
If you’d like a better idea of the stone cold crazy harmonies on “The Prophet’s Song”, take a peek:
(Note: This is from an earlier version of the song, and the final version has been polished a bit.)
See you next Friday!
