In this video lesson I am going to show you Brian May’s classic guitar solo that ends “We Will Rock You” by the legendary Queen.

Undoubtedly, you have heard this song a millions times on the radio, at sporting events and in commercials.

So in this We Will Rock You guitar lesson video, you will finally learn how to play that climatic ending just like Brian May did it.

The solo comes in with a sustaining harmonic that launches into a simple power chord rhythm. I will break down the strumming hand for this part in addition to showing you the chords.

Brian May then takes everything up an octave to the 14th fret and the real fireworks begin. You will be playing two triads (A major & D major) by constantly hammering-on and pulling-off between the two chords. In between all of this there is some cool hybrid picking licks as well. I will break all of those lick down note-for-note.

The solo quickly comes to an end almost as suddenly as it begins, but within that short time there are some great guitar techniques to get under your fingers. Have fun!



  1. Realistically, if you are a hobby guitarist who had lessons years ago, how hard would it be to pick this up?

  2. watch my channel on the clapping tutorial JK XD

  3. I need to buy an electric guitar… should sound exactly the same which I just heard, Any suggestions?

  4. WAY too much overdrive here, sounds awful. Nice transcription though, the playing is right on.

  5. Queen last sings "We will, we will rock you!" the last two times with the sustained note, which sounds more like a feedback effect from the harmonic. Brian's opening effects to that guitar part are so unique in that way.
