    Hey all, this is my first cover for the Queen song. Couple of things...1) I am 14. 2) I've been playing bass for 1 and half years, but started to play it intensely about a month ago.

    3) The bass is an Ibanez GSR200FM (I think <_<; )

    Other than that, I put annotations to point out my mistakes and such. I burp too. =D Tell me what you think. Thanks. :)

    Nice work!

    Loosen up a bit and try to feel the groove a bit more - this song REALLY requires it (the easier ones often do!). Try not to rush the beat; stay in the pocket with this one.

    Other than that, keep it up!!! :)

    Hey you flubbed rhythmically a few times but other than that it was pretty good. As the other poster said, really concentrate on the pocket and be sure not to rush and play on the wrong beats.

    Play behind the beat a little more... it's kinda like.. playing flat, it's a lot harder to notice than playing sharp. Bass ahead of the beat is usually no good... leave that to the gui****s. :)

    Thanks for the tip! I'll have to try it out.
  7. When the groove modulates up during the verses, it goes to an F# (2nd fret), instead of a G (3rd fret). Good luck :)
