A Man Who Plays Bohemian Rhapsody On the Ukulele Is A Genius In My Book

Yesterday I went to a concert of ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro.  I had heard of him before, as he had been featured on CBS Sunday Morning, one of the best shows running.

Honestly, I just went there to take his photo.  I love music and I knew he was good, but when I heard him play, I realized he is fantastic.  And then he won my heart by playing my favorite song, Bohemian Rhapsody on the ukulele.  A revelation.  A song that usually needs an orchestra played on a tiny, usually not rich sounding instrument and it came out sounding the way it did???  Magnificent.

Jake Shimabukuro, you have a new fan.  And you also make for a good photography subject:
