Awesome Gayageum

Everlong on Gayageum

Everlong on Gayageum

We’ve been following musician Luna Lee and her outstanding Korean-style arrangements of popular tunes for some time. Along the way, we missed one of her best covers ever, this 2016 performance of the Foo Fighters 1997 hit Everlong. She really rocked this one out with those layered gayageum tracks.

Crazy on You on Gayageum

The rock group Heart is known for its memorable melodies, awe-inspiring vocals, and killer guitar riffs. While Luna Lee’s gayageum version of Crazy on You has us missing Ann Wilson’s powerful lead vocals, it’s still a fantastic cover version.

What’s better than one of Luna Lee’s gayageum covers of popular music? A medley of five of them in a single video. The tracks include CCR’s Have You Ever Seen The Rain, John Lennon’s Imagine, George Michael’s Careless Whisper, Chicago’s 25 or 6 to 4, and Led Zeppelin’s Babe I’m Gonna Leave You.

Korean Ring of Fire

We’ve always loved the Johnny Cash song Ring of Fire. While the original version will always be a classic, we have to say that Luna Lee’s cover version played on the gayageum sounds great, replacing the mariachi-style trumpets with an Asian-flavored country twang.

25 or 6 to 4 Korean Style

Every time we post a video by Luna Lee, we’re simply wowed by her ability to transform classic rock songs. This time, she took on the 1970 Chicago track 25 or 6 to 4, which also happens to be one of our favorite songs of all time. We’re happy she left the horn section alone though.

Wish You Were Here: Korean Edition

Wish You Were Here: Korean Edition

We always enjoy the twangy sounds of the Korean instrument known as the gayageum. Musician Luna Lee once again demonstrates her skills on the strings with a great multi-track cover version of Pink Floyd’s 1975 classic Wish You Were Here.
