Step 1: Youtube Copyright
Youtube Copyright plays a big part in how you make your cover. If you don't do your research on the song you want to cover, you might end getting a copyright flag or even strike on your YouTube channel. Pick your songs carefully and you won't end up with that big of a problem. There is this handy tool that you can use on YouTube that will actually tell you if a song is blocked or not. Lets say you record a cover and it's a very popular song and you don't do your research, it could be blocked world-wide and you cannot do anything about it, except for changing the pitch a whole bunch. It would suck if you couldn't use the cover that you just put all of that hard work into, thats why I think doing your research on your song is so important to do, thats just in my opinion. In the video above I show you how to do all of this stuff I just explained.
Hope this helps guys.
