Sam Edelston can rock the duclimer. On his YouTube channel, he writes: "Dulcimers are natural rock instruments. In fact, I even say that dulcimers are among the world's coolest musical instruments, and they deserve to be known by the general public - the way that everybody knows guitars and ukuleles. Though usually associated with old folk songs and tunes, dulcimers are great for a shocking variety of modern music, too. I do these videos to inspire more people to play and listen to dulcimer music, in diverse, non-traditional styles." Above, watch him cover the Ramones' 1978 classic "I Wanna Be Sedated." Find more covers of Zeppelin, the Stones & Beatles here. And yet more covers--including Bowie's "Space Oddity" and Sabbath's "War Pigs"--on the Contemporary Dulcimer YouTube Channel. Enjoy.
