"Bold as Love" and "Wait until tomorrow" were written by Jimi Hendrix. Mayer covered them.

I have the JM3 cd, and its good, but i dont have much respect for John Mayer after a certain interview i heard. He is quite arrogant.

^^^There's a link in a thread at a blues forum i use (pm me if you would like information on it ). To be honest, i havent heard the interview in full b/c of my terrible internet, but a very trustworthy person explained to me what was said in it. I will hunt that link down and edit this post with it in a minute.

EDIT: Here you go.

Look, John isnt THAT arrogant. He's just a wise-ass, and likes to make jokes. He did make that one comment, but its not that big of a deal.

And its about time the general guitar community reconizes what Mayer can and has done. You may not have liked his pop music, but it too has guitar technicallity.

That thread is probably a better place for discussion, friend.

'bout john mayer


i appreciate his attempt and concern to spreading the blues to younger folks but imo he's making more of a discrace to the blues. remember, just imo.

i guess his cover stuff is good (hell, i could make a good cover song). yet, his original tracks have never caught my ear. It's alot more difficult to make a blues song than to cover one.
you told him to try to build bricks without straw
he asked you to build cities without bricks

i dunno hwo to explain, its like somethings stopping him. maybe lack of the soul for it or what but yeah

hahaha

Yea I get what you mean, whats probably holding him back is the money he knows and his records execs. know that his blues stuff wont earn him and them the money they want and could get from making pop stuff. So he's afraid to go out on a limb and be soley a blues player, he doesnt want to risk his carrer.

ya hes awesome, i love his stuff...but theres a thread like 10 threads down on JM3...so to be honest this new one isnt necessary, u guys should hit the other one up, theres lots of stuff there...

no honestly guys, john said himself what he likes to do is fuse the modern pop (YBIW) and bluesy (JM3) into new stuff like Come Back To Bed...

^^^Try! is probably the best album. I'm not very familiar with his other stuff.

I don't know what everyone here is talking about!

Arrogant? No
Confident? Yeah

Him playing the blues doesn't sound like he's missing anything at all, he's got the blues runnin through his blood.

As for his singing, well he sings great. He sounds the exact same live as he does on studio albums, and that is something to be admired.

ive never given john mayer trio a chance. . . . . simply beacuse i never got into john mayor AND it seems to me (just by the image given off) that they might be tryin to be like john BUTLER trio. now. im guessing if you like JMT and youve not heard of JBT you should look into it.

Sooo, JM3 totally freakin rocks. I learned "Another Kind of Green" a while back, but the version of it here on UG.com is incomplete, does anyone know how to play the solo/fills he does at the end of the song? I can't quite figure it out
