that can be true, but more or less we were saying the licks are the same. and SRV most defintely had some of Hendrix's trick list in his bag. and everybody after SRV has a little bit of his in their bag. keep in mind, in no way am i bad mouthing SRV i LOVE his music. just being a guitarist there are influences everyone has and strives to master.

You can see some of Hendrix's influence on SRV's "Life Without You"

At first I didnt care for mayer until I saw him play with buddy guy at Farm Aid. I was hooked. Then I started hearing some of his work with the John Mayer Trio. He is a extremely good player and I respect him fully. Not as good as SRV.. but hell who is?

BTW... i've never seem him use a pick... has anyone? I've tried that style.. but I find it somewhat complicated to get good sound on solo's without a pick. Personal preference of course.

What the hell are you talking about. All I stated was that I noticed hes def. influenced by SRV by his style. I never said he ripped him off.

Everyone rips everyone off. Hendrix ripped alot of people off.

He's just saying that alot of people rag on him by calling him a rip off of SRV just because of some licks, I honestly dont really hear alot of SRV influence in him to call him a ripoff like KWS or Los Lonely Boys IMHO.

I hear alot more Hendrix influence over SRV influence, maybe there was that "Lenny" lick on 2:02 on "Waiting on the World to Change" and some "Texas Flood" licks on the solo on "Covered in Rain". His tone is very Clapton esq'.

Also does anyone know if John is going to be getting back with the Trio for a new John Mayer Trio album?

most but not every song are played with S. Jordan and P. Paladino. the main difference is that J. Mayer wrote the songs on Continuum where as the originals on JMT were written by two, or all three of them.

The JMT aren't really blues, either; they're much more of a neoclassic rock kind of sound.

i can't believe that this thread has so many positive comments, previous john mayer threads have been shot down in flames in this forum at least.

for me, i think the guy is incredibly talented regardless of musical genre. i don't like his pop stuff, but his blues and rock stuff is great. i really can't subscribe to the doctrine that says a blues player isn't allowed to play other styles of music.

i mean, come on, did hendrix play pure blues all the time? definitely not.

And I can't stand all the teenagers on this thread calling Mayer a style theif. Stealing is what blues musicians do. It's part of the blues tradition.

The greats are master theives. Robert Johnson's ".32-20 Blues" is unabashedly lifted straight from Skip James' ".22-20 blues". Eric Clapton's cover of "Walking Blues" is almost completely copied note-for-note from Muddy Waters' cover. Stealing is irrevocably stitched into the fabric of the blues.

I'll admit, however, that Mayer isn't much of an innovator, which is why posterity will never list him among the blues-rock guitar gods like Clapton, Hendrix, and SRV.

thats what im saying; he said he enjoys blues more, but that in no way means he is an acoustic singer-songwriter poser. maybe as i do he likes ALL of his music, pop stuff included.

it seems like a lot of people don't understand the concept of writing new music. musicians basicly take all of the music they listen to, blend it up, and spit it out. waiting on the world to change doesn't just copy lenny, he copies multiple song riffs and melodies/harmonies(listen to curtis mayfield - people get ready) to create something original . this is what everyone does, incase you havn't noticed. the people that get credit for being "completely original" just change the tone or the sounds of it. hendrix was playing the same old blues scales, just louder and more aggressive with a splash of peace, love, and lsd trips.

john mayer is a blues/pop/soul guitarist/songwriter/singer who has a whole lot of talent and is just as original as anyone else out there. deal with it.

I just can't seem to respect Mayer, he's too damn arrogant.

Totally agree. I think we need an "ONLY John Mayer" Thread soon. I personally find him to be unoriginal after awhile, he needs to stop trying so hard to be a bluesman.

Anyone else agree?
