I saw Julia Nunes do this, thought it was brilliant, and decided to figure it out as best I could and drop some video...

Don't think I have heard any Queen on ukulele. I bet Freddy would have thought it was great, I did! Well done man.

I thank you all for your kind words...

For the interested, when I got my uke a few months back I searched for uke related videos and came into a video by Julia Nunes... and then I rolled through her YouTube offerings... and I liked alot. She has been one of my primary inspirations on what a uke is capable of... check her video:

AWESOME! I only have a netbook with a 300 X whatever chezeocam, but I would love to do the overdub video flip layering here...

Oh - and Julia can actually sing. :)

Just found this old thread, You're My Best Friend by Queen always brings back good memories. Here's a good tutorial www.ragamuffinmusic.com/best-ukulele-for-beginners/ (http://http://www.ragamuffinmusic.com/best-ukulele-for-beginners/) if anybody ever wants to learn how to play it.

Hee hee nice! Love thread resurrections when there is good stuff in them!
I am a big fan of covering Queen on ukulele myself, here is one I did for the Seasons about a year ago...
