What do you think about this artist?
Oct 16 2014 by Demo
Pat Allen: Whoa! Time for this one again.
henry alva: The real difference is that Clapton was doing Clapton, while Mayer was
doing SRV - but I admit the guy sounded pretty good. He can't sing though.
Scot Duke: Interested version!!
Salil B: freak john, clapton is beast
Pete Fransee: John Mayer is good, but he couldn't carry EC's jock.
EC is God...............Mayer is an alter boy as of now.
M.T.G: Clapton Sounds like 'Clapton' & Mayer sounds like everybody else...
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...
NothingMaster: No-one could duplicate Clapton's sound; he may not be the absolute best out
there, but his is an unmistakable an inimitable vibe. Same with JJ Cale,
SRV, Jeff Beck, and some of the other greats. John Mayer is an
extremely talented guitarist, but even a merely-decent player like myself
could reproduce his sound.
carolann O'Connell: Hell yeah !!!
Carlo Binchi: *John Mayer and Eric Clapton - Crossroads*
Rik Morgan: You got to give it him, JM smashes the crap out of that solo, happiest
blues I ever heard
Carlos Eduardo de Oliveira: coisa de mestre!
AmericanIsraeliJew: All I know is I wish at least one millionth of their talent. Tell my
friend boy Willie Brown.
theycallmejpj: it was okay
Gabriele Sasina: John Mayer and Eric Clapton - Crossroads (ABC New…:
anicho27: I love lots of things about John Mayer, the guy can sing beautifully, is a
really fine guitarist, writes excellent songs and I really admire the way
he is a genuine guitarist and he pays tribute to the ones who paved the way
for him - everyone from BB King to Clapton! Good on you John, love your
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.
TheGibsonman1959: It was an honor for John to perform with Clapton. I like Clapton's voice
better however. Eric could have blown away John on the solo, but he didn't.
You know why? Because he wasn't there to show off his playing. He was there
let John have some fun with a solo. Plus, you don't have to play a whole
bunch of licks. John had some good licks, but Clapton played simple.
Clapton played Clapton. You can catch an audience on just one note, like
the first hanging note he played, and continue to have them until you're
done soloing. I have done that many times in gigs.
Daniel Powers: The classic case of the whippersnapper and the seasoned vet! Anybody who
thinks Mayer's sound is homogeneous isn't listening. He's got a touch and
melodic line that's all his own. You could pick his playing out anywhere,
same with Clapton, B.B. and all the greats. Their sound is unique to their
benami avi: 100 stars.....
Alla Lenders: ----------продолжим)
TheMrRusherman: Put JM in the height of rock n' roll and he would be right up there with
Clapton. Personally, I think JM has proven to be way more versatile with
his guitar skills than Clapton ever showed.
Keng Yang: freak EVERYONE'S OPINION!
I'm just here to listen to some blues. :)
Dan West: Oh My Gosh...........what more do I need to say!!
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?
Dicky Asharhadi: great performance,
both of them are my fav
Chicky YaF: Prepare from home vs make it that moment...
donghoon lee: prepared playing vs improvised playing
Mateo Scarafia: so glag john is into the blues again...he belongs here
Jason May: Mayer is binging SRV to Clapton.
Martti Hakkarainen: taas lähettiin john meyer & eric glapton best off
Michael Gerle: I think Slash isn't such a good player - fame isn't an indication for
William smith: lame.
Nuno Carvalho: i never really understood why people have this uncontrollable need for
comparing guitarrists that shouldn´t be compared... Clapton is Clapton. On
the other hand i appreciate and admire John Mayer and the musiciens that
always accompany him, it takes a lot of work to get where he is.
Enjoying the overall quality of the band and the great musical interaction
between the musiciens, that to me, yes, is the most beautiful thing about
listening to music.The concert "Where the light is" by John Mayer is a
great example of that...
Dayne Vlok: haha normal sized Tyrion Lannister on bass!
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.
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
ron s: mayter better than clapton....its like saying margarine is better than
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!
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

Randy McDaniel: Oh crap and you know can't forget SRV!
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！
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.
running man: 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,
Chad Harrod: 2:30 - 2:45 Clapton wins this round JM ..
Do you know the lyrics for this song?
