Re: How To Cover A Song?


I just like to jam when I hear the song. I'll play along a couple of times without even listening that much to the drum part so as to get a feel for the song. THEN I go back and actually write out my own part. It almost ALMOST always comes out good

Re: How To Cover A Song?


It totally depends on the song and the group of musicians. On the NRBQ songs Me And The Boys and You Can't Hide, one of the pick-up bands I work with performs them exactly like NRBQ. In yet another combo, Four by Miles Davis is totally reworked/rearranged.
