John Mayer is very young as a guitar player but he has already in a short period of time managed to mark his mark as a guitar player. His right hand technique is a little unusual, he plays a bit like a slap bass player at times. He seems to have taken the picking hand percussive style that John Martyn made famous in the seventies, into its next phase. No doubt he’s not the only that is doing it but he is out there in the commercial market as a pioneer of this style. Non guitarists may not quite pick up what I’m talking about but it is unusual. What fascinates me is his ability to sing as well.
I like it!
