Slowing down songs is another great way to learn from records and your song collection. I use Song Surgeon, which works really well for this. Check it out.

Guitar Lesson Overview

John Mayer is a good blues player. He plays with a lot of feeling, and I picked out some idea I heard him play on the song In Repair. These styles of licks are great to use in a variety of styles of music. It's bluesy, but it would fit into rock, pop, soul, country, etc just as well. A good staple lick, using the D minor pentatonic!

Good start. John Mayer, IMHO, is becoming one of the great blues players. I think he tries to "walk the line" between what sells, and what he loves. He DOES have some great pop tunes ... but he's at his best when he is playing the blues. KUDOs to you, Robert ... you have a great ear, and you don't care if your opinion strays a bit from the general consensus. I think you'll find, though, that JM is regarded well among those who actually play blues guitar. He's not SRV just yet ... but he is on his way!

BTW, one of the best concerts I've ever heard live was John Mayer at the Gorge, on the Columbia River in Washington State.

Create more JM licks; compare them with some other greats. Then make a bundle, and I will buy it.

Thank You, Robert;

Take Care For Now;

Mick
