What a priceless performance! On Instagram, Queen’s solo guitarist Brian May has shared the video of he playing Bohemian Rhapsody’s guitar solo in front of Gwilym Lee (who played Brian), Rami Malek (played as Freddie Mercury) and movie crew.

He shared the video with this caption:

“When the BR team were filming this scene, I happened to be around, so Gwil invited me to have a go! How did I do, folks? Well, obviously not quite as good as Gwil! He’s a trained artist ! 😊 We had too much fun!

I’d like to see the rest of what happened, captured by the film cameras which were still rolling … some day. In case you’re wondering why this solo doesn’t sound like the ‘out-take’ one in the film, I only had the idea to make that happen later, when we were polishing the soundtrack.

In any case, we wouldn’t have had the facilities to do that on the day of the shoot. In the film, you hear a variant take on the Bo Rhap solo which just MIGHT have been the one previous to the final one which made it onto the record! Might ! That’s if it hadn’t been a genius first take keeper. Ha ha ! I honestly don’t remember
