Cover Songs

Bit of an informal post this week, but I just wanted to share some Bluegrass covers that have been done of songs from different genres. I enjoy listening to covers and have a decent amount of memory on my mp3 player being taken up with cover songs from an array of genres. For example, I have liked many songs from the “Punk Goes Pop” series and also am subscribed to a classical guitar player named Igor Presnyakov on YouTube. Igor takes songs from many different genres and applies his sound to them, and I think he does an excellent job at doing so.
