Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Version of “Little Wing” Played on Traditional Korean Instrument, the Gayageum

Ear­li­er this year, we showed you Luna Lee rock­ing out a ver­sion of Jimi Hendrix’s 1968 song “Voodoo Chile” on the tra­di­tion­al Kore­an stringed instru­ment called the Gayageum. Now she’s back with an Asian-inflect­ed ren­di­tion of “Lit­tle Wing,” a song orig­i­nal­ly writ­ten by Hen­drix, but then lat­er cov­ered in a 1991 Gram­my-win­ning ver­sion by the late, great blues­man Ste­vie Ray Vaugh­an. On her YouTube page, Lee tells us that it’s Vaugh­an’s ver­sion that she’s bas­ing her charm­ing pro­duc­tion on.
