Almost two years ago, we featured a video of Simon Fitzpatrick performing a live bass arrangement of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”.

Simon is back with a new version, which reminds us of how epic Simon is.

  1. This is when I unstrap my bass and walk away. lol. This was so good!

  2. I just can’t believe my eyes…. amazing!

  3. Just one more answer to the question ‘why more than 4 strings?’! And if you can’t play on more than 4 strings, that’s your fault.

    • While this is impressive, he is a one man band and if that is your gig then yes more than 4 is for you. Otherwise I personally dont see much use for more than 5. I own a 6 string and I thought why not give it a try. But I find I never go for it. I just have no use for that many strings :)

    • Your only limitation is your imagination.

    • I LOVE my 6 string!!! I feel so limited when I play a 4 or 5 string. I’m in a band that plays prog, classic rock, and Metal. I may not use the high C string for every song, but I’m always glad to know it’s there.

  4. This is when I unstrap my bass and walk away. lol. This was so good!

  5. Genius! something to learn a lot from from as well.

  6. Martyn Hunt Luke Jones.

  7. It’s good and all, but it’s still just a cover, where’s the originality, plus my bands fans would piss bottle us off stage if we came up with this!

  8. I have a reason for more than 4 strings:
    Replace the guitarist and drummer!


  10. Wow! What a talent! I’m in awe!

  11. This leaves me speechless : WOW !
