The Beatles Continuing Influence on other Musicians, Part 1

This is also one of the most talked about aspects of the Beatles, which is how they have inspired countless numbers of people to learn to play an instrument, write popular music of their own, and start music bands. I cannot believe the sheer volume of musicians who have posted material on the Internet covering the Beatles songs. The Beatles music has continued and goes on with musicians from later generations covering their material.
On YouTube, all a viewer has to do is enter a search for "Beatles on guitar" or "Beatles cover tunes" and a cache of material is brought forth.
I was doing a search a few months back and found this boy named Sungha Jung. Check out this kid's version of Paul McCartney's "Blackbird."
I just found a related link to another musician covering Beatles material. This is Haley Legg covering John Lennon's "Dear Prudence."
Here is a girl named Kiersten that did a cover of John Lennon's "Girl."
Here is a duet act of two girls called Fiomily doing a cover version of John Lennon's "Help."
The material out there is an endless list. I could cull out about two dozen videos and line up a coffeehouse night of Beatles cover tunes.
