The world-famous smash hit "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen was released in 1975 and has been appearing on the radio, in TV show and adverts, featuring in films and has been covered countless times by numerous artists - so you'll have definitely heard it!

I have been working on elements of this, on and off, for monthssss now! It feels great to get it completely written up from start to finish and in a good enough place to share :)

It's definitely not perfect, so please let me know in the comments if you think anything can be improved - I hope you enjoy playing Bohemian Rhapsody and would love to know how you find it!
