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.
