Brian May obožavatelje putem live streama iz svog doma uči svirati brojne klasike grupe Queen. Legendarni gitarist, prošlog tjedna započeo je svoj projekt „MicroConcerto“ kako bi pomogao brojnim obožavateljima i svima zainteresiranima tijekom ostanka u svojim domovima uslijed pandemije koronavirusa.
„U svojem dnevnom boravku sam. Gdje drugdje bih bio? Izgleda da su mi svi postojeći kanali na raspolaganju da vas zabavim, a Instagram se čini kao dobro mjesto za odašiljanje micro koncerata u eter. Čini li vam e to kao dobar plan?“, tim riječima Brian May najavio je početak projekta.
Udovoljavajući željama obožavatelja, May je održao kratke lekcije sviranja pjesama poput „Bohemian Rhapsody“ i „Keep Yourself Alive“.
May se osvrnuo i na svoje iskustvo samoizolacije:
„Vrlo ozbiljno shvaćam samoizolaciju, a trebali bi i vi. Smatram da si trebaju smanjiti svoje socijalne kontakte i interakcije koliko god je moguće kako bi imali šansu držati ovaj virus pod kontrolom.“
Don’t even THINK of watching this if you’re not interested in guitars, Queen music , or musings on the CoronaVirus. This is the conclusion of my MicroConcert of last night - which veers off into a Star Lick tutorial. And some noodling. And some concluding thoughts about the situation we’re all in, as humans, right now. THANKS so much for the comments you’ve sent me about these guitar Microcosms - it’s actually taught me a lot in terms of what I have to offer and what I might be doing with it in order to maximise its effect. We all need to be aware of the effect we have on those around us - if we have time to stop and listen. We all need a mirror. Take care dear folks - Bri
I’m not an immunologist - but anyone with even a scant understanding of logic and statistics has been feeling angry and anxious this last 3 weeks. These are my thoughts - I hope they are helpful. My heart reaches out to those already directly suffering from the effects of the CoronaVirus. Our Spanish friends are now in the heat of the battle, as we in Britain will soon be, barring a miracle. God bless ya - be strong and be careful. Vaya con Dios. Folks everywhere - our miracle will come - but we need to help it happen. We need to buy time - and the closer we get to a Nation where every household is isolated from every other - the more time we will buy. Remember not to expect things to change immediately - turning this thing around is like trying to make an ocean liner change its course - you have turn the rudder and then wait until it slowly responds. But we can do this. Be safe - and let’s be grateful we have a chance here. And let’s still try to enjoy each day we’re given. KEEP CALM AND CREATE !!! #dontstopusnow Cheers - Bri
Well, have to admit I wasn’t in the mood for analysis tonight. Just wanted to connect. And I have to acknowledge I was helped in this broadcast by a couple of Grey Goose and Tonics - courtesy of my lady wife. Of course I did get lucky in securing the services of the Best Barmaid In the World !! Maybe I will persuade her to photo-bomb me in a future MicroConcierto ! Happy Saturday folks ... IS it Saturday ?!! Who knows ? All the days are starting to feel the same now. It’s a bit like being ON TOUR !!!
