I've just given up on this project going anywhere due to lack of interest.

Wookieman's Indiana Jones project of more than a year ago got into a similar situation.  It ended up with only one participant, namely @Steve.  Wookieman didn't even play it, but he did go through with the mixing, and produced a nice video of Steve playing all the parts alone.  It's not as grand as what was intended, but it was something.  Having put in as much work as you already have, I guess you should go ahead and make it come real.  You would get experience in every aspect of making a music video.  And maybe a one-woman quartet could serve as a demo for something bigger later. 

Best wishes.

 @Robyn.fnq  Sorry, I didn't notice the part where you said some of it was too hard for you to play.  BTW I took a closer look at some of your videos elsewhere on the site.  Your bowing rhythm is very good ... very snappy!  Good intonation, but what really stood out was that you definitely know how to keep the beat.  Keep fiddling.

I would love to help, the problem is I probably wouldn't be able to play it very well.

I might be better equipped to play a part in this if it gets going.  I can't have a tough deadline because of my slowness to learn, but I think it would be rather epic.   :)

I'd like to give this a try, too. Will get to work on it. Glad you mentioned it again, Robyn @Robyn.fnq !

Hi Robyn 

I'd love to see thus get up and going. It's a great piece of music.

Not being a music reader makes it a bit difficult for me to join in but I hope others will jump in now that the topic has been revived :)

Seen it all. Done it all. Can't remember most of dunno ..... What was I saying???? facepalm

Wow friends!

I really had given up on this, not out of disappointment in any people here (well, maybe only myself).  I really did think it was just too hard to do.  I've been trying to look at the score to see if I can simplify it anywhere ... not an easy task for Queen!  I may need some help in that aspect, if anyone can see where it can be done.

Thank you all for the encouraging remarks, it's been a year since I first posted this project, and I still can't manage it, though I try.

No, Toni, there is no deadline ... roflol ... it was never intended to have one.

Personally, I think V2 is just as difficult as V1, but I am trying to manage both, with little success.  I had this dream about 6 months ago that I would just go ahead and do all parts myself and post the resulting video ... well you can see how far I've progressed with that dream.  Maybe the only fun I have with this one is actually arranging the score myself, I'm still proud of that little effort.

If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.

You should be proud! And that now we all have more experience maybe it won't seem so hard.
