I mean, there is that sad folk rock/country cover of September from Taylor Swift floating around too.

They could have at least covered a better Offspring song.

I was not aware that Warren Zevon was ethnically Russian Jewish and that he actually got music lessons from Igor Stravinsky as a teenager, but in retrospect Play It All Night Long (not to mention Lawers, Guns, and Money) is basically Dostoevsky as Americana

This is like the "Even a Monkey Can Draw Manga" of guitar playing IMO. While I'm not into crushing the hopes and dreams of people starting out on, well, any instrument, I certainly think there's a lot that people need to think about when they're their own only accompaniment (as with guitar here) like voice leading and harmonic layering if they want to truly master the craft. (I think in the Hey Ya example he undersells how important the harmonic structure is in that song -- something that I think contributed to why people were interested in making lots of solo guitar covers of it, and also why all those guitar covers sound so much blander than the original)

That was a nice video! And extremely important for guitarists to hear, I think!
