Guy sits in the garage, does a killer cover, puts it on YouTube...

Cover of Steve Wariner’s “Some Fools Never Learn”

Good. Do you know this guy? That was posted years ago.

No, don’t know him. I stumbled across it looking for the Steve Wariner version.

This sort of thing is a big part of YouTube.

This guy seems pretty good!

The garage echo acoustics is what works for me. And the talent.

Nice find. I really enjoyed that!

The guy can sing and yes, the garage makes it play, i.e., adds a touch of reverb. Nice.

This just reminds me of the reality of the music biz: being really talented has no correlation with whether you can make money at music, let alone a living, let alone a career, let alone fame. Thank gosh YouTube is available as a channel to share this type of performance, and yes, at least some folks have built careers and even stardom from that starting point.

Jacob Moon doing a solo cover of Rush’s “Subdivisions”, with some looping tools:

It was impressive enough that he was invited to perform it in front of the band when they received the Canadian Songwriter's Hall of Fame award. I can't seem to find the video of that performance, sadly.

That was really cool. Thanks.

Here’s another.

Cover of UFO’s “Built for Comfort”

Surprised these guys aren’t getting hit with DCMA takedown notices and/or having their accounts suspended.

Is this the thread for YouTube covers? Here’s a beautiful girl playing an exotic instrument doing a masterful job with a wonderful song: All Along The Watchtower.

I’m blown away by Morgan James sitting in in a tiny kitchen with one guy strumming on a beat up guitar and another guy rapping on a garbage can:

interesting. It had the opposite affect on me. Maybe it was the computer speakers but I found it annoying. Nice bit of talent though.

Only if they are really cool.

That was really cool! Her Voodoo Chile cover is also great. Thanks!

Very nice! Thanks.

Come on, keep 'em coming! Prefer bare bones artist+ instrument, totally killing it.

Everything posted so far has been great.

OK, here’s one to revive this thread.

I love this. It’s a guy doing a cover of Substitute by The Who.

He plays every instrument. :slight_smile:

That’s awesome!
