What do you think about this artist?
Jul 20 2014 by Demo
Marcus Evans: WTF Eric is bored. That's why he is playing with Mayer. Mayer holds no
torch to any of our real blues guitarists. How is he noted as "one of the
best in the the world". My hope for my generation of music is done, gone,
diminished. I am 16 BTW. It looks like it will be only my family listening
to actual music and talent.
Massimo Colarusso: Q: Doctor, is Mayer better than Clapton?
A: Oh, I see the medication is still not working properly, I think we
should go through with more efficient treatments. Have I talked to you
about shock therapy?
Dan West: Oh My Gosh...........what more do I need to say!!
SoothedBySound: I love Clapton, but at this point, Mayer is both a better singer AND a
better guitar player.
M.T.G: Clapton Sounds like 'Clapton' & Mayer sounds like everybody else...
kerry mcmanus: If Eric had a mind to he could blow John off the stage,instead he is
respectful to other players he likes,he says more in 15 notes than John
does in 100.
ron s: mayter better than clapton....its like saying margarine is better than
Guitar Journeys: It's been awhile since I watched this video, but coming back to it recently
I have to say I'm actually impressed with John Mayer. Not to knock him as a
musician or guitarist, but it's gotta be hard to hold your own next to
Dexter Haven: I don't know musical history too well, but what an honor for Clapton to be
able to play with Mayer like this...
Cody Justice: Watching John play with any of the blues legends is great. I watched him do
a set with B.B. King and it was by far the most kick ass thing I have ever
seen. John is a badass.
Alla Lenders: ----------продолжим)
luuke furtado: Ginger Baker would have punched mayer in the face....Just ask Jack
Spencer Shimon: These comments are rather annoying. Clapton is a great guitar player and
John mayer is a great guitar player as well. You old timers who are stuck
in "the good ol' days" type of reaction, are missing the point of music.
Music evolves and the 70's aren't here anymore, it's 2014 so you should
appreciate an artist like John Mayer keeping that kind of music/generation
alive. John Mayer IMO is easily the best performing artist of the 20th
century and if you think I'm wrong, go to one of his concerts. He's an
amazing musician and one that deserves more credit from you old school
Bertram Greene: Don't get me wrong John can really play the hell outta that guitar...
But I just can't stand his singing voice.
That's probably the only thing that keeps me from being a fan.
I don't give a damn if he's racist tho, ride on!
PMF1: 2:10 - God mode [ENABLED]
gymbo88: John Mayer is no Clapton, but he aint no slouch on guitar, either!
Yuichi Noguchi: ｃｒｏｓｓｒｏａｄｓで恋ﾁｭﾝ/ﾊｯﾋﾟ-みたいに世界中がｽｲﾝｸﾞしたら！
Randy McDaniel: Oh crap and you know can't forget SRV!
William Truong: Btw, stop hating on Mayer just cause he didn't have such a big fan group
like Clapton, just cause Clapton had more doesn't mean he's better (it
doesn't, but I believe he is a better blues artist). Mayer played during a
decade of rnb and rap and shiz, blues and rock aren't dominate anymore. So
shut up because Mayer is a living aspect who tries to carry what's left of
the blues, and don't say no one has talent, I don't see you making fame so
imjusthereforthefood: holy santa clause crap people suck on youtube.
it's two guys that respectively have earned their spot(clapton by far, yes
we know) but to see them both slaying is what it's all about.
get freaked if you're fighting about this. all 4 minutes of it is pure gold.
Salil B: freak john, clapton is beast
pete taylor: Understated meant to say ⬇
luuke furtado: Two greats John Mayer & Eric Clapton....You crapting me ??? adding mayer's
name to Sir Clapton is blasphemy punishable by death in some countries....
birdstuckinchimney: Oh freakit...who cares they both killin it!
Gokul Dharmana: Hell, John Mayor can really play that guitar!
Keat17: Shut up everyone! Mayer and clapton are 2 of the best musicians in the
entire world! Just relax and enjoy the music. That's what it's about,
Randy McDaniel: Okay and john mayer and clapton have both earned there spots on where they
stand and they both play amazing and tell me how many current mainstream
artist play respectable blues anymore not many and john mayer does a
great....wonderful job of keeping it alive
Chad Harrod: 2:30 - 2:45 Clapton wins this round JM ..
William Truong: Lol, both their guitars are almost same
Doona Miles: why are you guys hating on john. he even played with buddy guy, johnny
winter, and many more. he is freakin talented and one of the best guitarist
dietmarsimon: Welcome Mr Mayer ! Maybe the most exciting solo I had heard for a veeeeeery
long time !!
Eric Sandoz: Le maître a fait des émules!
pete taylor: Clapton is god and he goes easy on mayer here and kept his playing
understand true gent and a genius
CLAPTON IS GOD
Neil Smith: I know Eric likes and respects John Mayer, and John feels the same for
Eric. Music is NOT a competition.Never has been.
Dee aka weeds: Remember.....Clapton is God! :) He hated that.
Dinant Kistemaker: I would give my left hand for JM's talent... :)
J Antoine: How can someone dare compare Clapton and Mayer ? Listen to his crapy albums
and listen to what Clapton did, there is no comparison possible. Talent is
not just one solo, so many guitarists are skillfull nowadays, but how many
have influenced music in the way Clapton did ???
s2kdriver: Oh man I do NOT like this version at all. Mayer does not have a good blues
voice, the tempo is too fast, and the accompaniment makes this sound like
something off of the Blues Brother soundtrack.
Cream's live version is much more raw and honest than this, IMO
birdstuckinchimney: Oh no maybe Clapton
Jesse Sigcha: I could practice everyday for a year and probably still never be able to
play this kind of material.
shinsuke chujo: nice guitar solo
Karen Munro: sweeet!!!
Randy McDaniel: Okay so I'm right don't tell me I'm wrong because I'm absolutely right and
I know it okay first of no john mayer is not the best guitar playing by
quite a few people such as buddy guy, eric clapton, jimmy hendrix , bb.
King, all great guitarist john mayer hasn't reached that point yet but will
and john mayer is great at the guitar but in his defense I play myself and
can play half of claptons songs but I can't do hardly any john mayer songs
because they are just to difficult and it's not like I try he is my
favorite but give him the credit and respect because he is a badass and a
great guitar player and will probably pass up clapton with time and no john
mayer sounds like himself he has his own style and techniques of playing
and you might not think so out of your own ignorance you would acctually
know if you played guitar and payed attention to details that are big and
small that make a huge diffrent thank you.....
mick: John! surfn guitar! and Clapton's slow BLUES. . . gooood!!.!!
Mark M: Epic
Glenn Jimenez: I like how Mayer starts soloing and Clapton smiles, it's approval. Clapton
wouldn't be up there if he didn't enjoy Mayer's work.
mick: John! surfn guitar! and Clapton's slow BLUES. . . gooood!!.!!
Joey Diorio: +Al Kelly Dude stop commenting and hating on Mayer. If you don't like him
why keep commenting? Nobody cares what you think. If you don't like him
Do you know the lyrics for this song?
