Hey guys, I've been asked to play the guitar for my school's rendition of Queen's We Will Rock You Musical, which i have to learn 31 songs for July (Really Excited!). Ive been given the tracks to listen to, and this is one of them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7xJzpwjl0I It's the version of "Somebody to Love" i need to learn. The singer who plays Scaramouche sings this in a different key, i'm sure. My guitar doesnt sound right with the original notes (I used the higher rated Guitar pro file on this site for reference).
Am i right in thinking this version is a half-tone higher than queens original?
Thanks guys for the help It sounds right, but a second opinion is always cool

Queen's original version of Somebody To Love, from Greatest Hits II & III is a half step lower than the version you posted. I was playing your version using A major and Queen's in Ab major, or G#.

They didn't give you music to read from? Usually pit gigs supply sheet music...I would honestly be kind of pissed off if I agreed to play for a musical and then they told me I had to learn all the songs by ear. Sure, it's good to practice transcription, but that just seems annoying.
