You've probably heard "Free Bird" played on just about any instrument you could imagine. Of course there's guitar covers, but we've also heard people play Lynyrd Skynyrd's soaring ballad on the drums, a mandolin, and even a ukulele. 

Just when people thought that they couldn't hear any new instrumental take on "Free Bird," one young Korean woman proved otherwise. 

Since joining YouTube in July 2009, Luna Lee has generated 15,068,997 video views and 97,352 subscribers. Those millions of people have tuned in to watch her offer her take on some of the world's popular songs. And she does so with the most fascinating instrument you'll ever see.

Luna plays her covers on an instrument called a "Gayageum." The Gayageum is a traditional Korean string instrument, typically with a total of 12 strings. For her covers, Luna mashes up the Gaygeum's traditional sound with rockin' tunes, such as Jimi Hendrix's "Voodoo Child" (her most popular video, with over 4.5 million views), AC/DC's "Back in Black," and of course "Free Bird."

On October 15, 2016, Luna shared her "Free Bird" cover online and it instantly gained traction. As of press time, it was sitting at just under 200,000 views.

Luna decided to focus on the guitar jam at the end of "Free Bird," which is perhaps the most recognizable, but also the fastest, part of the song. It seems hard enough to make your hands fly over a guitar's six strings, but Luna has no trouble keeping up with the song on her Gaygeum's 12.

The sheer speed of Luna's playing is too impressive to even begin to describe. But beyond that, we're really digging the sound of the Gaygeum on that guitar jam!

Go ahead and tune in to the video below to watch Luna work her magic on "Free Bird." If you want to watch her put her twist on other rock classics, be sure to visit her YouTube Channel here.
