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!
