We don't know who the greatest gayageum player in the world is, but we know which musician is our personal favorite. There's nobody we love hearing play the national instrument of Korea more than Luna Lee, because she's managed to turn the distinct sound of those 12 strings into a sonically different way to appreciate some classic rock hits. She transformed Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and the Red Hot Chili Peppers "Californication" into something entirely different yet familiar. She did the same thing with Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall." Lee managed to make the Game of Thrones' theme song even more epic.But her latest cover might be her best yet, because she tackled one of the greatest tracks ever from one of the best rock 'n' roll bands in history. And we are totally "Thunderstruck" by her version of AC/DC's hit song.
Anyone feel like running through a wall right now? SAME. (Also, huge bonus points for that shirt.)If you didn't know you were listening to an unlikely cover of "Thunderstruck" the first few notes might throw you off, but it quickly becomes clear what she is playing. Who ever would have guessed a gayageum could rock this much.This isn't her first AC/DC track though. She also did a cover of their classic "Back in Black."We half expect Angus Young in a school boy outfit to come bouncing through these videos playing his guitar. Not that Luna Lee needs that though. Our favorite gayageum player in the world leaves us "Thunderstruck" on her own.
