Did Roger play all of the guitars on Fun It?

Serious discussion about the band known as QUEEN.

Did Roger play all of the guitars on Fun It?

I know he played most of he guitars on Fight From The Inside, Sheer Heart Attack and More Of That Jazz...but Fun It?

The solo sounds very Brian. The riff does too.

Most is not the same as all. Fairly sure Brian's on all the mentioned tracks as well.
John hated Hot Space. Frederick's favourite singer was not Paul Rodgers. Roger did not compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

‘Fun It’
From: ‘Jazz’ (1978)

Would it be a stretch if we called 1978’s underrated and wildly diverse Jazz Taylor’s finest hour with Queen? (See No. 4 on our list of the Top 10 Roger Taylor Queen Songs for further proof.) Even though all four band members made fetchingly idiosyncratic contributions to the album (Mercury’s “Mustapha,” May’s “Fat Bottomed Girls,” John Deacon’s “If You Can’t Beat Them Join Them”), Taylor’s supremely funky “Fun It” takes the novelty cake. The song flirts with both disco and the infamous Syndrum pads and still makes it all work.

Clearly no one knows but the band. To me the riff sounds like it could be played by either Rog or Bri. But probably Brian as it's quite a fluent line. Perhaps playing a riff shown to him by Roger, as it's rhythmically reminiscent of some of the riffs on Shove It, for example. Solo definitely Brian IMO.

Pingu...that's what I was thinking. The fluidity of the riff sounds like Brian. It also kind of sounds like the Red Special.

This was a period where Roger would play most of the guitars on his tracks but it doesn't sound like it in this case.

'Most' is not the same as 'all.' Both 'Fight from the Inside' and 'Sheer Heart Attack' also feature Brian, so it'd make sense for 'Fun It' and 'More of That Jazz' to have him as well.
