Hi.

I have recorded one song before (my own) and would now like to do a cover version of another song.

Is it legal to do a cover without permission or do you have to ask the artist first?
It's not the guitar, it's how ya use it.

not 100% sure but i think you just hafta make sure you give credit to whoever you're covering. i'm pretty sure, but that could also mean nothing...

You don't need their permission.
You just need to cite them as the original.

Please read the rules of this here joint. Thanks.
