My son has been working on this song for a whole year and finally got it down. In an age of video games and cell phones I could not be prouder of the commitment this 12 year old showed in practicing this song almost daily for an entire year. He consistently amazes me and I couldn't be prouder. Please leave a nice comment on youtube if you enjoy the video and appreciate his hard work.

That is fantastic, and a truely noteworthy accomplishment. You have every right to be a very, very very proud Dad. Tell your son he is an inspiration. I will remember how long he worked on this piece when things start to get hard

Wow, awesome! I can see why you are so proud. I'd certainly be proud if I could play that as well.

That's just great! Clearly he put a lot of work into an extremely difficult song.

Great version of the song, well done. Left a message on the Youtube video. I've been a Queen fan since I was a kid, so it nice to see this.

Excellent work. You should be proud when the PULL of video games, TV and other stuff is so prevalent. Great dedication at any age but especially at 12.

Bravo to your son............

Ukulele is so much fun!

Well done! Good for you dad! And great videography too (; I was proud when my little girl of 10 was strumming "Little Red Rodeo" with me, lol. Sadly now she won't play at all ):

Great job!

Thanks Jim, Logan will be excited to see your comment. Logan and I did a workshop with you a long time ago at the Reno Ukulele Festival (I think it was in 2012 at the ripe old age of 9 years old). It was a great festival, he got to meet Aldrine and play "Crazy Train" at the open mic.
