Now if they can mix a Shakuhachi in this, it would be even more awesome.

Cool on both counts!  Thanks!

That is cool.
Thanks Subby and Modmins.

She had a really good groove going on there, or as much as one can on that instrument.  Great stuff.

I just wish they hadn't buried it under all the canned bullsh*t. In my opinion they almost ruined it. Should have let it stand alone...

Any "Gayageum Style" jokes will be dragged out into the street, and shot.

Aside from that, one of the best covers I have ever heard.

Agreed.  Still awesome.  It didn't need anything more than her playing.
 
2013-03-25 06:09:40 PM  
Well there's another musical instrument on my Want List.
 
2013-03-25 06:14:24 PM  
This is actually a cover of "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)"

This is "Voodoo Chile".

Ok if she does a great version of SRV's "Texas Flood" I might talk my wife into both of us marrying her.

Her last name's Lee and she plays a traditional Korean instrument. Of course she's Japanese.

Screw those backing tracks. Can't she get a drummer and bass player and call it the Gayageum Experience?

Glenechocreek: Screw those backing tracks. Can't she get a drummer and bass player and call it the Gayageum Experience?


Its a work in progress, I'm sure. From what is looks like she's already getting offers for help.

In the meantime... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JffZFRM3X6M

Disappointed she didn't play it with her teeth and then light it on fire, but yeah, it was pretty darn cool.
