Sticky Post
Since it's so very hard to spend any time on a computer without finding something fascinating on YouTube (or similar websites), I felt the urge to post one of the things that I find to be incredible as far as music videos go.

It's no secret that I am a big fan of classic rock. Obviously there is a whole new generation of people who had adopted this style of music as there own.
But when it comes to cover songs, most mucisians tend to be purists, feeling that an EXACT copy of an original song completely takes the 'art' from the music.

I can certainly understand that. However, I also feel that the level of accuracy in perfecting every detail of an original score is an art form in itself!
Some of the kids I've subscribed to (on YouTube) who have demonstrated their amazing talent to reproducing some of these rock classics are beyond incredible to me.

I'm sure that many here will already know some of the musicians that have posted some of their stuff on YouTube, but I'd just like to use this thread to give some big time props to any real quality cover that someone may want to post here. I'll start with two exceptional covers which I feel are done PERFECTLY!
:9:



These are of such good quality they would make GREAT karaoke songs! In fact I've belted out the lyrics to these tunes many times in recent months! :hihi:

Keep 'em coming!
I'll do that if you like. :grin: But I will have to do a lot of uploading, because I have been recording lots of songs lately. But it's keeping me sane, and as long as someone else wants to hear 'em, I'm bold enough to post them. :hihi:

The drumming was pretty tight...;)

Seriously, if you did the lead vocals and overdubbed the harmonies, that's quite impressive. As much as I love and enjoy music, I was not blessed with a voice for singing.

Well done! Your new hobby should be something to consider expanding upon once televised sporting events return.

:hysterical: I should have known that was coming. :hihi: :9:

Wish I could say that I was playing the music (which would be much more impressive to me), but no, I am simply doing all the vocal parts of the song. Since setting up my home studio I have been especially interested in doing songs with 2 & 3 part harmonies in order to learn those skills in singing and mixing. I'm sure that I'll be doing a lot more of this in the future because I'm sure that this working from home thing isn't going to last forever. :shocked:

You may already know, but I've posted a bunch of covers in this thread over the last year or so. However I haven't made any new videos of my most recent recordings to upload to YouTube lately. Now that I am in lockdown it's likely that I will create some of these to post on this thread. It's not like I have anything else to do.

This is probably one of the lesser known covers but it is one of my favorites...

my son did a tribute of Slipknot's Vermillion. He did the arrangement, plays bass, studio work, and post-production. I thought it was pretty good - he is just now graduating from high school.
