    I have always wondered if peopel who do instrumental covers on Youtube are eligible for the Adsense??



    You can obviously hear them playing, but they play over the original track, so I don't know if it will class as copyright?

    Anyway, if you can make money this way .. Im going to do a shit load of bass covers and SEO the shit out of them!

    Any idea?

    I've think I've seen ads on people doing covers. I've seen one girl appear quite a lot who has, shall we say, a rather generous rack, doing guitar covers and getting millions of views with ads enabled. I assume they get paid.

    People that are doing covers hope someone will see their potential, I don't think most of them even know what Adsense means.
    In any case, if you can do a shitload of bass-overs, DO IT! For Adsense! Once you get subscribers and views to your vids, you should go viral. At least if you do "covers" for popular songs! What are you waiting for? you found your method, take action and profit :p

    Some people show their talent on YouTube to grab attention from other people.

    I'm not really bothered about the exposure too much. I already play with my brother and friend .. I am just interested in the moniez! :D

    It's an evergreen niche. New songs are coming out everyday, to cover

    If you suspect copyright infringement then its always going to be risky.

    I look up guitar covers frequently and I always see ad banners on them

    I doubt many of them will use or know about absence. More just hoping to get a fan base.

    Well, it depends. Some of those guys do get paid because they make good use of adsense. Others, well... they just want to show off their talent and want to get noticed. And still there are a few who just want to be on YouTube and have fans.
