Everyday I have the blues...
11/07/10 at 00:13:15
 
This is a great cover by John Mayer.  I love the way he did it his own way.  He sounds like SRV with a Hendrix bent on a B.B. King classic.  It isn't bad at all.

I have more respect for John Mayer daily.  Listen to this.  Some nice blues.  I've been into Joe Bonamassa the past few years but I have to say that John Mayer's vocals have a bluesier tone than do Joe's.  Again, listen to this strat.

I've been impressed by his guitar work ever since he first recorded.

But the guy is a real jerk imo. And I'm not that crazy about the style of songwriting and performing he's a part of.  I've never bought any of his releases.  In my opinion John is still just playing Jimi stuff, I haven't heard him really come into his own.

Here's a guitarist I like a lot more. . . Bobby Broom.

John Mayer is a jerk, but music history is loaded with jerks.  I just like the way he plays.  And just about every guitar player out there has a hint of Jimi or B.B. in them.  It will be tough for a present day blues player not to have it in them, especially if they choose to play a Strat.

By the way, I like the bass player in that Bobby Broom clip.  I've always enjoyed good upright bass players of many styles.

There's more than a HINT of Jimi in John's playing, writing and sound.  Lots.  I just wish he would change musical shoes a bit.  There's so much for me to listen to, I don't put myself in front of his stuff.

Yes, that bassist is very very good.

I've always got my ear out for something new in terms of blues.  This is Back Door Slam, an English power trio that's more in the vein of Cream.  They seem to have dissolved since their debut.

I like Mayer too. I don't have a problem with him chasing skirts when your in your 20's early 30's unmarried, although the diss on Jessica Simpson was uncalled for.

Yea, I dig up blues where ever I can find it. Thanks guys for these couple. Currently, I am listening to Jeff Golub - Blues for you. He has some nice guests on it Peter Wolf, Billy Squire, Marc Cohn and John Waite. I love Jeff's guitar playing and he is adept at acoustic guitar too.

Of course this disc sounds wonderful with my Select, but I also enjoy with my 200 watt mono blocks-when I really want to get my Ya Ya's out......... .

Jeff Golub, huh?  Never heard of him but I like what I found on YOUTUBE.  Thanks for the reference.  So far I dig what I've heard.   Here is another guy, Sean Costello.  He passed away but he left some nice music behind.

After listining to more John Mayer I think he is more a Stevie Ray mimic than Jimi Hendrix.

rmt, I tend to agree, especially JM's vocals.   As it is, SRV is said to mimic Jimi...so, in essence, lots of blues players from recent years, especially strat players, have that sound.

Hey, stone, I was thinking of your comment today:

"I like Mayer too. I don't have a problem with him chasing skirts when your in your 20's early 30's unmarried, although the diss on Jessica Simpson was uncalled for."

If you think about it, rock and roll and the blues are all about chasing skirts and some guys are in their 70s, Mick Jagger, cough, and are still chasing skirts.  Jessica Simpson gets what she deserves.  You put your face out there and you are going to get it slapped.  That's just what I think.  Today's cookies and cream stars like that Bieber kid and the Jonas Sisters are too squeeky clean for me.  They lack that raw thing this is blues, rock, jazz and you name it.  

Wasn't Mozart a skirt chaser, too?

Here is another nice blue's clip with Joe Bonamassa and Eric C at the Royal Albert Hall.  I have the DVD and CD and this song sounds great cranked up high.
