He does a good SRV imitation. Other than that.......yawn.
He’s rips with dead and company
I watched the vid and it may be just me but scofield didn’t sound that great.
In a world filled with made up mime acts Mayer gets stick.
I like this one a lot.
Really don't know how I'd react to seeing that in my neighborhood.
Considering he's made himself a successful career in a very crowded field as a pop/blues guitar singer, I give him credit for that. His material though seems largely forgettable. I consider him a male version of Sheryl Crow. More image than substance.
He's a fantastic guitar player. But I am not a Blues guy, and whatever he plays, sounds like a billion other Blues guys and wannabes, just better than most.
I typically prefer Metal and Prog Rock players.
You mean somewhat musical sonic fizz?
Love his work with Dead & Co. You can tell he is having fun, and that he has delved deep into the music, not just aping Jerry.
Like what I have heard of his blues playing, but have not listened to a ton of it yet.
Not such a fan of the acoustic stuff, though it seemed to do well with the target demographic.
On a site where some guy named Keef and Clapton are like a guitar and songwriter gods, anyone who plays fast is a non-musical shredder, and many don't get jazz at all (I recently read a couple of, "what kind of crap is that..." after someone posted a Schofield song), I don't get a lot of the remarks here.
In this context I don't understand the disdain for Mayer. He's a great soulful player. Keef? Nothing worthy since the 70's. Even then I wouldn't consider him a guitar god. Clapton? He's been rehashing the same lines for many many years now.
I'm not necessarily a fan of Mayer's own music, but I always like the guitar work Particularly when he's playing with other people.
I can only assume you're being facetious.
