Check out Zsolt's new lesson, "Joe Satriani: Rubina's Blue Sky", and then post a reply to todays topic. Do you prefer any covers to the original recording? Is there any cover out there that you feel is more recognized as than the original?

The first thing that came to my mind was JJ Cale's Cocaine which was covered by Eric Clapton.

canon rock - JerryC is the perfect example.

Oh I mean Funtwo is more popular than JerryC. At least I didn't know JerryC composed it before. smile.gif

And I mean the rock version that is popular... not the original piano piece wink.gif

Guns'n'Roses covered many songs in "The Spaghetti Incident?" and some of those covers became popular than original songs.

First songs that came out from my mind are Knockin' on heaven's doors played by GN'R and Halleluja played by Jeff Buckley. These versions are more popular than the ones played by Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen.
