Bohemian Rhapsody Piano Notes Easy Letters
The piano plays an iconic role in “Bohemian Rhapsody” – especially at the beginning. We’ve taken this part of the song and created a piano cover version for you.

We’ve also included the chords for those who want to put their own spin on things. Now this song is not the easiest, but it is very rewarding!
You will see that we have two flats, which means we are in B flat major. So note in your head that all E’s and B’s are flat by default!
Now Freddie plays this whole riff with both hands as accompaniment while he sings. If you want to do this as well, you can play octaves with your right hand on top of G and F.

The left hand remains pretty similar here, except we sweep down to form a similar chord figure for Gm with the left hand. On the right side, watch out for these bands.
The next bit gets a little crazy. Your hands won’t line up. And when you practice slowly (which you should at first!) it might sound a little strange. But play it at the intended speed and you will hear the melody clearly.
Feel free to rewind the video a few times if this part is confusing to you. For the more visually inclined people, here are some graphics with counting to help. Note: each syllable (1, e, +, a etc.) is a sixteenth note.
BUT, if it helps to just listen to the music and play what you hear, you can do that too 🙂
Just The Way You Are
AND, if this is too difficult (no shame!), what you can do is play and hold the chords in your left hand and play the melody on top. It will still sound amazing!
🔥🎹 HOT TIP! Strange rhythms can be hard to understand, but breaking them down can help. Learn how to deconstruct complicated rhythms on the piano like we did in the graphic.
The next part looks a little crazy, so take it easy. Practice the left hand on your own a few times first if you need a little extra focus here. A lot of accidents happen…
📜🎹 PIECE OF HISTORY! Producing “Bohemian Rhapsody” was no easy task. In the Queen’s time, everything was analogue and manual. As the editing was relatively difficult, the recording required a high level of commitment. Freddie is said to have entered the studio with the song fully formed in his head.

Another part that looks a bit complicated is measurements 15-16, but we’re almost done so hang in there!
Practice the left hand first. On your right you will notice a C plate. It is exactly the same note as B natural. This part sounds a little funky, but it will work itself out soon.
Now the song is winding down. You will be descending chromatically through a few chords, so again, watch out for those accidents.
📜🎹 PIECE OF HISTORY! Freddie Mercury never considered himself a pianist. Freddie was humble about his abilities and often enlisted expert keyboardists to support the band. Read more about Freddie Mercury and his relationship with the piano in our profile spotlight of the legend.
