Luna Lee YouTube Channel
We guarantee that you’ve never seen anyone play Lynyrd Skynyrd‘s music like you’re about to see right now!
Known for their signature triple guitar attack, Skynyrd’s guitar parts and solos are some of the most iconic in rock history. Even those who aren’t huge Skynyrd fans can recognize the opening solo to “Free Bird” or the first few notes of “Sweet Home Alabama.”
Since Skynyrd is a guitar-driven band, many of their fans aspire to play guitar as well. But there are a few Skynyrd fans out there who opt for less common instruments, including one young woman.
Luna Lee has quickly earned the status of a YouTube sensation thanks to her unbelievable talent. She plays a traditional Korean instrument called a Gayageum, which has a total of 12 strings. Using her Gayageum, Lee covers rock staples such as Jimi Hendrix’s “Voodoo Child” and Skynyrd’s “Free Bird.”
Lee also took the time to cover another Skynyrd classic…“Simple Man.” One of the most beloved songs by Skynyrd’s fans, “Simple Man” is also one of the most frequently covered. But we know you’ve never heard it like Lee plays it!
In order to do “Simple Man” justice, Lee filmed herself playing several different parts. She then combined these parts together in one video to make the song complete.
Two shots on the sides of the video show Lee’s hands from the top so you can watch her playing up close. The middle shot shows Lee from the front, which gives you the chance see how much she gets into her playing. We don’t know how she does it!
We can’t think of anything else to say except…you need to watch this right now. Seriously, check out Lee’s insane “Simple Man” cover in the video below.
