In-Depth Night!

Hello everyone and welcome to my grade 10 In-Depth Night presentation.

This year I decided to pursue learning the guitar for my In-Depth Project. I am very new to playing the guitar, and when I started the project I had to begin with the basics. I learned chords, short riffs, and just played around on the guitar.

To share my progress over the last few months, I decided to learn to play Bohemian Rhapsody on the guitar. I chose this song as it was challenging, to the point where I needed a lot of practice, but it was doable. The video below shows my attempt at playing the song. I only learned to play the beginning of the song for now, and the ending is slightly different, but I hope to learn the rest in the future. (Note: near the end of the video, there was a loud sound in the background so I redid one small part of the song, thus why there is a cut to a different clip).

Before you watch/listen to the video, I just want to thank my mentor Ewan (Grade 10 classmate) for guiding me through my journey of learning the guitar. If you wanna hear really good guitar, check out my mentor Ewan’s blog post where he learned about songwriting on the guitar.

The recording below is far from perfect, with many mistakes, but I am still happy with what I accomplished. After watching the recording back, I realize I never smile while playing the guitar… that must be my concentration face. Anyway, without further delay, here is me playing part of Bohemian Rhapsody on the guitar.

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave comments, concerns, or questions which I will be answering.
