I've always stood by the credo that to do a cover version any justice you have to somehow make it your own, or at least make people realise it's you and not the original. Some say you should stick to sounding as similar to the original as possible but to me, that doesn't show your own identity. As a person who has been performing at Open Mics, doing covers mainly, for almost 15 years I think I've always done things in my own style, whether it be Folk/Fingerstyle versions of Punk classics to sing-along versions of Kylie Minogue and a lot of stuff in between!
What's your take on the subject??

I was chatting to a Luthier friend of mine the other day and, during the course of our conversation, he recommended these products to me.
A Freatboard Cleaner and a Fretboard Restorative from Crimson Guitars here in the UK. He gave me a bottle of each to try and having used all sorts of different brands of Cleaners, Oils and Polishes over the years I will honestly state, here and now, that these are by far the best products I've ever used on a fretboard. On top of that you can use them on all types of wood too!!
You can order them HERE.
And they now come in fancy new bottles!!
