What does Jimi Hendrix and South Korea have in common?

Luna Lee apparently.  Let me explain.

First, even if you don’t like Jimi Hendrix, listen to this video.

Now, I doubt there are few who would argue about Jimi’s great guitar skill.  Hell, I don know how to play but could see his passion and energy and appreciated it when I do occasionally listen.

Now, here is the South Korean connection.  Meet Luna Lee.  I don’t know anything about her but I just saw this cover she did with a Gayageum of the above song and was blown away.  Having been in Korea for nearly 3 years, and seeing how ‘mechanical’ they tend to learn things, I watched her play very closely to see if she had the spirit of the song in heart.  I was NOT disappointed :)  She killed this song and has made a fan of me :)

I hope I can meet her and thank her in person for that awesome and inspiring performance!  Please share this around!
