So as a follow up to my first post, some years ago the Rolling Stones 
song Love Is Strong was getting a lot of airplay on radio.  I was 
playing a gig with a band called the Counterfeiters, a pick up band with 
a rotating cast of characters.  At the end of the set we got a request 
for Love is Strong.  We said sure then went out into the parking lot 
where I learned the harmonica part note for note off of a cassette tape 
player in the bass player's truck.  We went in after the set break and 
played the song.  Got decent house, everyone was happy.  So it's not 
that I don't get that there is a time and a place for covering a popular 
and very familiar song note for note but it isn't necessarily the end 
all be all.
