Gayageum-Style Video: Girl Covers Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan on Traditional Korean Instrument
Check out these videos of a young woman — Luna Lee — performing iconic tracks by Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan on the gayageum, a traditional Korean zither-like instrument.
The gayageum has 12 strings, although some variants have been made with 21 strings. It is probably the best-known traditional Korean musical instrument. (Thank you, Wikipedia!).
First, she tackles Vaughan's "Scuttle Buttin'," followed by Hendrix's "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)." Chances are Luna's a Vaughan fan, since both of these songs appear on his 1984 album, Couldn't Stand the Weather.
