I believe you pay the standard royalty if you record the song. I understand that any licensing of live, performed material is the responsibility of the venue, thus the ASCAP and BMI stickers you see in bars sometimes. I've sometimes had contracts specifying that all material that we perform be either traditional (public domain) or orginal (to avoid ASCAP and BMI fees). Hope that helps.
