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.
