I've been following a Russian band called Leonid & Friends for years as they've done incredible Chicago and Earth Wind & Fire covers. But now they've branched out into Steely Dan and I think I just a died and went to heaven!

Or, for the most covered song in the world, there's the obscure Patti Smyth version.

This Blue Cheer cover is far from unknown, but I like it.

Even though the originals of these songs were by legends, I still love these two covers:
My Way by the Sex Pistols
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIXg9KUiy00
Blinded by the Light - Manfred Mann's Earth Band
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdHtCtRABWs

As a wrinkled rocker with some guitar-playing history, the "fingerstyle" guitar playing of the current generation of musicians is mind-blowing...

www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1bzUaf_gvU

In total contrast to a guitarist playing multiple melody lines with just two hands,
here is the same song played by 5 people on one guitar...

Totally agree. Lots more Tommy Emmanuel style stuff out there. Makes me want to make a bonfire out of all my guitars.

If you are ever planning a trip to the US midwest try to time it for the end of July when my little town of Nashville Indiana plays host to an international fingerstyle guitar competition called the Indiana State Fingerstyle Guitar Festival. Mrs. stickyfrog and I couldn't attend this year but we for sure will next year.

My music partner and I have been playing together on and off for over 50 years. I am an old rock 'n roller, he is a talented musician. Prior to the vaccine being released, we did this cover of a Dolly tune, with Mark's clever lyrics...

And before that, when the pandemic was causing lockdowns, this parody of the Willie Nelson song, On the Road Again...

Parodies isn't our thing; mostly covers of rock songs and originals. We are 1400 miles apart, but technology makes it easy to collaborate these days.

And I still do plenty of solo things...

Oof. You got that right. Can't believe I sat through the whole thing. Perhaps in hopes of watching Bowie's wardrobe collapse.


Hey, I'd thought Imbruglia had dropped off the face of the earth after her first CD like a hundred years ago.....
