Remember the Korean zither girl? This past year she"s been signed by a major studio and has released her first album.

The higher notes she bends with that `non-PC` stereotypical Asian whine. I don`t care for it overall. I`m sure she`s good, but this song didn`t do it for me.

@ TuffGhost: Good points. Have you seen Luna`s cover of "Voodoo Chile"?

Besides the current typo, the title would be more accurate to say "Hendrix`s". It`s true Dylan wrote the song, but seeing as she was obviously drawing mainly from Hendrix`s guitar and there aren`t any vocals...

@ Jake: Thanks, Jake. Not playing the guitar (or any stringed instrument), I appreciate your insights on this. Whatever she`s doing, it seems to work, right? I could write an essay on how much I love her musicianship. There are times when she is so possessed by the music (or visited by the Muse, however you`d like to phrase it), that it`s a privilege to watch her.

Squrlz, there are times when it looks as though she`s using the pinky of her right hand to anchor the hand while picking, just as many guitarists do.

@ Rick: You`re right; I never noticed it until you mentioned it. I`ve got to figure that`s the technique taught for playing the gayageum. If I recall, Luna has had at least a dozen years of instruction in the instrument in Korea.
. . .
That said, I just looked at pics online of women (and one or two men) playing the gayageum, and I`m not seeing the pinkies so prominent. Maybe it`s just a Luna thing.

Her pinkies stick out in the most peculiar way!
