  1. what’s the strumming pattern if you choose to strum instead of plucking? :)

    • the strumming pattern changes like 25 times, I make it up as I go and it sounds fine. Listen to the song and follow along with the guitar

  2. message to everyone struggling trying to learn this: it CAN be done!! I’ve only been playing uke for a year (weekly-daily is how often i practice, each time for at least 30 minutes) and this song is easy as pie, i just memorized it today and as a treat took myself out to see the movie. good luck and you can do it! i believe in you. IT CAN BE DONE!

  3. SweetPotato

    2 years ago I tried to learn this but then gave up

    and now Im back after watching the movieee 🤪

  4. I literally just printed this out as a reference to chords lol

    Challenge accepted. >:)

  6. if you play Bb instead of B on “gone and thrown it all away” and “gotta leave you all behind” it sounds better

  7. Meeraya.Ukulele

    +2 is a little easier ;)

  8. My goal this summer is to master this song…Wish me luck!

  9. Antisocial-Yeemo

    oof… I’m using the chords for piano and JESUS HECK!!! there’s a lot of them and that’s gonna be fun to learn.. hats off to anyone who manages to master this, I respect you. I really do.

  10. Izzytheemo

    excuse me who created this beautiful monstrosity

  11. Hi I’m dying :) I’m gonna end it all bc of these chords. I mean…. why man why are there so many dang chordssssssssssss :`) I just wanted tho play this tyjo style…. kms

    • Same though. I know like half of these notes and then my hand hurts after playing it ;(

      • For real keep practicing!! A year ago I wasn’t a strong player (hand cramps, forgetting chords, slow transitions) but now this is the only type of music I want to play! I now know these chords and I’m getting better every day. Don’t make it easy for yourself, challenges are the only way to get better. Don’t give up

  12. My mom showed me the whole song but picked. It took me several months to master. She didn’t even know about this and I learned it in a day. ;-;

  13. mmmmshirleytastezzgoodddy

  15. Moomooshirleyukuppl

    Plus my character guy looks like something you find below ur stomach that’s pink and Long. HAHA HAHA HAHAHA HE am I crazy? Yepp

  16. Moomooshirleyukuppl

    Let meh tell y’all a lil story..
    One day dere was a tiny boi named boi. He played da uke. But den he went on a website to look for da song called bohemian rhapsody, and he found it. But boi couldn’t play it cuz he had ADHD and couldn’t concentrate. Sooooi, he went to da library for some reason to concentrate or someting, but still couldn’t play da song. Well, boi came back home to play it and couldn’t!!!! Turns out, boi didn’t have ADHD, nor did he have internet access, so this story is a complete failure, but anyhow…. Boi found out the song was way too hard so he committed suicide to himself and also licked his family before he died cuz he was to fed darn up. This is an example of what you should NOT do in life, but maybe the playing of this song is right to not continue with BC u might get frustrated and commit. DE ENDD

  17. maddiemoomoo

    this song is amazing though

  18. maddiemoomoo
