Stumbled on this on you tube.

Had never before heard of this instrument, but I might be falling in love with Luna. :wink:


The younger people might not recognize this one, but I did instantly.

I've seen her videos before, and she's great. That instrument is really expressive, and lends itself really well to guitar music with lots of pitch bending and vibrato.

On the subject of unusual covers of rock music, this reminds me of my favorite version of Smells Like Teen Spirit, performed in classical Latin: https://youtu.be/PbEKIW3pUUk

This version is surprisingly catchy, and I actually like it better than the original. The lyrics make no less sense in a dead language than they do in American English.
