i thought i might continue with something i started yesterday…
for the next little bit, i’m going to write about my favorite guitar players…
these might be obscure session guys, or some guitar player from a band. or they may be some huge global artist.
genre doesn’t matter because a great guitar player is a great guitar player, so here we go.
This guy has to be my FAVORITE artist in addition to being an amazing guitar player….yes i’m talking about….
now let me say. i think John is an amazing blues/rock electric player, but what originally drew me to him was his ability to make an acoustic guitar sing. specifically on this song.
that is such a young, fresh faced John.
i literally wore out the “Room for Squares” album and thought to myself how can this guy top himself? then he comes out with “Heavier Things”, the John Mayer Trio and finally what i think might be some of his finest work “Continuum”. i even have his indie album “inside wants out”. i think i have pretty much every song he’s done that is on CD or iTunes.
i love the way he plays on this song “Heart of Life”
one of my favorite things he has ever done is team up with Brad Paisley (spoiler alert!!!!future post) to do CMT CrossRoads. since you can’t find any video footage from CMT (cheap jerks) then all you get is audio and pictures. enjoy “Why Georgia”
