Watch This Guy Play Bohemian Rhapsody On Guitar Using Chopsticks
Whether you’re a Queen fan or not, you simply cannot deny just how bloody good Bohemian Rhapsody is. One of the all-time great songs that fills you with joy and whimsy like you’re caught in a landslide, no escape from reality… Oh, hang on.
It’s musically ambitious and lyrically it doesn’t make any sense, but there’s a heart to Bohemian Rhapsody, and countless musicians have tried covering it on guitars and pianos all over the globe. But how many have tried using chopsticks?
YouTuber and fingerstyle guitarist Ralph Jay Triumfo used his chopstick wielding skills and video editing talents to create this incredible video of him playing all of BoRhap with just his trusty wooden sticks. According to the video title, 90% of it is in the editing, but it’s still very impressive.
“This is the most difficult and most time consuming video I’ve ever made,” he says in the YouTube description. And having watched it, we believe him.
Other YouTube sensation Ten Second Song Guy covered Bohemian Rhapsody in 42 different styles. That’s the internet for you!
