Oh, this. This so much. I've made starts on songs that are awesome that I really like, when my attempts to cover them end up being ... pathetic. Which ultimately makes the song Not Fun. Conversely, one or two songs I've been able to create decent covers for like it was nothing, which ultimately makes it Fun regardless of my opinions about the original song.
It gets real discouraging fast when you're attempting to cover something and nothing you do (even just a single measure, chord, or note) seems to work.
