Ukulele Covers Project: Q

An embarrassing public attempt to teach myself to play ukulele and sing by covering a band for every letter of the alphabet.

I am not stupid enough to think that I could get away with playing a Freddie Mercury Queen song, so I wisely opted for a Brian May tune. A Brian May tune about the tragic heroism of people leaving earth in a lightspeed-capable ship to find new worlds to inhabit while their loved ones grow old and die in the relativistic single year the volunteers are away.

Fun fact: Brian May, in addition to being the guitarist for Queen, has a PhD in astrophysics, so when he writes a song about lightspeed-capable vehicles, it is factually accurate as well as being catchy and emotional.

If you like any of these covers I do, feel free to check out the original songs I am ever-so-slowly putting up on my bandcamp page:
