In this guitar lesson tutorial we look at both the 12 string part and lead guitar part played on the Brian May Red Special guitar.

“Long Away” is a single by the band Queen; it is the third track on the first side of the 1976 album A Day at the Races. Brian May wrote the song and sings the lead vocals.

This song is available as a downloadable content for Rock Band 3. Also, it appeared on the 2014 compilation album Queen Forever.

It is one of the few songs where May uses a guitar other than his Red Special. For the rhythm guitar parts he used an electric Burns twelve string guitar (although he used the Red Special for the second guitar solo in the middle section of the track). Originally May wanted to use a Rickenbacker guitar (as he admired John Lennon), but he didn’t get along well with the Rickenbacker’s thin neck.

Roger Taylor sings the highest parts of the song. Freddie Mercury only did the backing vocals
