    Can't afford that Stratocaster? :cash:
    Maybe you should just build one with the help of dad, and one of mom's knitting needles for a whammy bar! And wood from an old fireplace! Then you can play just like Brian May!
    :idea:

    And no, this has absolutely nothing to do with Howard. But who really cares at this point? (fuck off)

    This thread is now about great guitarists! :guitar:

    I made my own saxophone from a menorah and empty Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup cans.

    The Rothbaum's were pissed!

    thats interesting. when i used to cover queen songs i would use a coin as a pick to slightly emulate brians sound.
    i assume now, he only used a coin because he couldnt afford picks

    Why wouldn't he just take the coin and buy some picks?

    Isn't Brian May some sort of math whiz?

    I like really hard guitar picks and actually used dimes, until it became clear that I was spending more on strings than picks. Now I just buy the expensive picks.

    No he's way into astronomy. It seems I remember reading somewhere that he'd taught or spoken before some college classes. :uscratch:

    I still hope to see Orianthi playing nekkid in a music video some day.
    Of course it will never happen, but a fella can dream, can't he?

    May without a doubt is the most underrated guitarist I can think
    of.....If you listen to their first three albums you'll hear his genius with what he called orchestrations......Hard to believe he did it with that home made guitar

    agreed. but the coins were probably not his to spend.
    maybe borrow one from the moms purse and play for a while then put it back.

    i would be shocked if he used that actual guitar, especially for studio work.
    my guess is we see a professionally made copy on stage
