John Mayer- The Best New Guitarist Of The Modern Age


Well,, I thought of giving a special mention to John Mayer in this blog ... The reason was simple- An Exceptional Guitarist with Huge Potential to make it Even Bigger !

John Clayton Mayer
(born October 16, 1977) is an American musician(a Blues Guitarist )
The blues influence can be heard on his album Continuum He Won These Awards at The Grammy's - Best Pop Vocal Album for Continuum and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for "Waiting on the World to Change"

He reminds me somewhat of the great Eric Clapton, his style ,his techniques have a striking resemblance to Mr. Clapton.. and thats why I just love to hear him !


Talking about his music, its really very much meaningful and very touching ... He plays straight from his heart and you can feel that he wants to talk to you via his Guitar ... I just saw his performance at Crossroads Guitar Fest at youTube.com and I was completely mesmerized ... got completely lost into his playing...

Such a wonderful guitarist with a very down to earth attitude ... I may have no qualms in calling him a "Budding Eric Clapton Of The Modern Age" ...!!


Do check out his Live Performances at http://Youtube.com and you would definitely agree with what I said about him ...
