Whether you’ve been listening to Queen since they released their self-titled debut in 1973 or you first heard them in Wayne’s World, we can all surely agree that Brian May is a guitarist you should know about. His leads are melodic and singable, and his overdubbed guitar choirs are unparalleled. Is he also one of the smartest guitarists around? (He’s also an astrophysicist on the side!)
