well, I guess you know that there are different kind of covers. 1) Covers artist do to remodel a song and 2) covers people make just to show how it is played, just to show their abilities or to show their fondness of that song. Youtube made it possible to upload anything - so these "covers" or "playalongs" are maybe not the most creative thing but I dont see any reason not to upload stuff like that. There is far worse out there. And mr roboter is obviously not even trying to sound different or put something else in it, so why search for it if its not intended. About the robotic thing: just like a lot of the (technical) metal guitarist play I'm not a fan of it either, but I understand and respect the approach. That kid tried to play like that, too btw. that's the point. yes, it is important to encourage but that doesnt mean that you shouldnt criticise anything. I'm repeating myself but: I see why you are impressed by that kid but he's being a bit hyped. Some people even that his drumming was TOTALLY AWESOME, when it wasnt just that great (or really bad, even for an 11 year old). That's great, I like being entertained - link? then just dont watch it? its about watching people play it. It has nothing to do with "art" or creating something knew, you obviously don't understand that. Also, who put you in the position to say that it is pointless?
