Cringe 99.9% of all youtube guitar cover videos suck

i feel like this is something I need to get off my chest. Guitar covers on youtube are fucking terrible. Every single person who makes one plays the original song way too loud and I can't hear their version of it. I know how the original song sounds, I want to hear how it sounds when you play it. Here is an example of what I consider a good guitar cover. It's too bad this channel doesn't make videos anymore.

I think RichaadEB a LittleVMills do a pretty good job covering songs and have great guitar work.

I prefer when people cover the entire song not just playing an instrument over the original song. It just sounds muddled.

This guy covered Meshuggah's album Chaosphere in its entirety. It's amazing.

I dunno about that, metal songs tend to have some pretty great covers.
