There's nothing magical about guitar playing. Being a good guitar player requires more finesse than factory work. It does not require as much finesse as being a good plumber - Andy Cohen (roughly), Port Townsend 2016

In any case, I think you are right about "Come In My Kitchen" - this probably needs to be taken down.   Any others?  you said "numerous clear violations"?

I don't have my blues song book in front of me. The basis for me saying "numerous" is that I was flipping through the book and finding songs that I might learn and then listening to them to see if it was something I might enjoy and/or be able to play. The back porch is a great resource for that. I found a few I thought were possibilities. That's when I created the SoundClick site and stumbled into the licensing canna worms. I looked up the ones I was thinking of doing and found copyright dates that indicated potential trouble.

I am thinking I will do some "Handy work" for now; St Louis Blues and Gulf Coast Blues are okay.

Hey, I got a reply from SoundClick. This isn't exactly legal advice, but it seems to be potentially good news!

You can post the song for stream-only.  Please make sure to place it in a "Cover Songs" subgenre.  Thank you.

Subject: Copyrights and streaming with respect to cover songs

I found your page about having to pay a license fee for each download if I do a cover song. But it specifically excludes streaming (just says "not streaming"). If I post a cover song is posted without down download capability, do I still have to get a license of some kind?
