Free Bird! Free Bird!: Musician Covers Lynyrd Skynyrd's 'Free Bird' On Traditional Korean Instrument

This is a video of musician Luna Lee covering Lynyrd Skynyrd's classic 'Free Bird' on an electric version of a gayageum, a traditional Korean stringed instrument (previously: Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'). It sounds amazing. And not just because I'm a sucker for Free Bird, but I do yell it at every concert I go to -- most recently at my little sister's first grade fall concert. I could tell a couple of the fathers in the audience appreciated it, but they were the only ones. I got a lot of dirty looks from other moms and dads. I don't know, something about yelling over their kids trying to sing really got to them. Plus, okay, I did try to start a mosh pit at one point.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to LP, who once got kicked out of a wedding for yelling Free Bird at the DJ and throwing a glass of wine. Heck yeah, you sound like a great date.

    I lost my black bic yesterday. You stole it! Oh, wait. That one has that stupid metal loop over the striker wheel and still has the red plastic on the button? Not mine then.

    On a related note I have about 20 more at my house. It's no big deal either way. None of them are white or red though. Those colors are bad luck apparently. But good luck for me because ever white lighter I've owned people have been afraid to steal.
