A friend of mine, who I sometimes give CD's with cover songs, asked for some new covers. So I dug through my newly aquired covers and this was the first compilation I made. As usual a cover has be really different than the original to be considered for my compilations. For this compilation I aimed at a more laidback sound. Personal favorites are in the beginning and end of the mix.
I used live versions of the songs of Chris Cornell and Jake Shimabukuro. They sound more emotional and less clean than the studio versions.
Links to the downloads for this mix are in song 1 & 2. I also added a link to the video of Jake Shimabukuro playing While My Guitar Gently Weeps in Central Park.

Jenny Owen Youngs does a great cover of Nelly's "Hot in Herre". It's an accoustic-type version. I recommend it.
