She may not have been able to see Jimi Hendrix live, but she sure has the talent to keep Hendrix's music thriving around the world. 

Korean YouTuber, Luna Lee, also known as Luna Gayageum for her instrument of choice, is currently going viral with her cover of Jimi Hendrix's "Voodoo Chile" resurfacing the net.

Whipping out the traditional Korean stringed instrument, Luna shreds and plays riffs to the Hendrix classic with her own musical arrangement playing in the background.

The 6th century ancient instrument, called the gayageum, can be considered Luna's secret weapon to her recent viral success. As a majority of covers are done with guitars or the piano, using the ancient Korean string instrument definitely stood out to many viewers.

Continuously getting praised in the comment section of the video, Luna Gayageum managed to make headlines on the site Can You Actually.

At the time of publishing, Luna Gayageum's "Voodoo Chile" video has recieved more than 4.2 million views, 5,000 comments, and over 50,000 "likes."
