Music: Covers

While the tradition of songwriting is old, the tradition of repeating other people's songs or work sure follows close behind. Maybe imitating nature came first for us. Learning other's musician's work is almost always necessary to grow in musical traditions. Listening to another's work is one dimensional while learning and performing it is a 3 dimensional experience. It is as if we are walking in their shoes or wearing their sweater. Their voice will never be ours but we can still feel their vibrations.
