Rocking the Ukulele: Jake Shimabukuro Plays “Bohemian Rhapsody”

I have never thought to myself “hey! I need to go purchase a Ukulele based album.” At least not until watching this video of Ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro covering Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”. I’ve never been one for strictly instrumental songs but if they sounded like this I would be snatching up every album out there. Jake, who has been playing Ukulele since he was 4, has toured with Jimmy Buffett and was featured on Yo-Yo Ma’s holiday album. Check out the video below and if you like what you see go to Jake’s website.
