Hendrix on Ancient Asian Instrument


Bad to the bone.


"The gayageum or kayagum is a traditional Korean zither-like string instrument with 12 strings, though some more recent variants have 21 or other numbers of strings. It is probably the best known traditional Korean musical instrument. It is related to other Asian instruments, including the Chinese guzheng, the Japanese koto, the Mongolian yatga, and the Vietnamese đàn tranh. When played, the sound varies between traditional Eurasian stringed instruments and the Appalachian banjo."

6. It led me to listen



To other variations of the instrument from other countries, such as China and Vietnam.

Also the classical music the instrument is intended for.

I was pleasantly suprised.
