The other thing that I really want to work out is how covers work. I want to make a bunch of covers and I want to do it legally so the people who I cover benefit as well.

No idea where to begin with this. Anybody?

@SkinnyFeels if it’s close enough to the real song you can look into getting a mechanical license. My band uses one for a foo fighters cover. 😂 as far as I know it doesn’t work for remixes though and trying to contact people for rights sucks as they can be difficult to get ahold of as an independent artist. Currently have a couple eps on hold trying to clear samples. Might say fuck it and do it anyways.
