In this Radio Ga Ga guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this classic Queen song on the guitar.

The tuning is standard tuning.

A lot of “Radio Ga Ga” is synth based, but even with those little synth riffs and chords, you can approximate them on the guitar pretty well.

Brain May uses some interesting chord voicings throughout the song. He also has a pretty peculiar way that he performs a lot of those chords which probably won’t be possible for the average person to play. I will show you how he plays those chords, but will also demonstrate how to play the same notes with a bit of an easier fingering.

The chords I am using are mostly based off of the Live Aid version of the song, where Brain May uses a big guitar tone throughout instead of having the synth chords carry the song.

I will add a bit to his guitar parts as well, in a couple of parts that I think the keyboards are doing a cool chord but Brian May just plays the bass note of the chord. I will demonstrate both so you can decide which one you prefer.

I hope you guys enjoy learning yet another incredible song from the incomparable Queen! #radiogagaguitarlesson #queen #guitarcovers
