@jm2422  Agreed, John Mayer's not typically playing the blues (he's stylistically all over the place), and a couple of those cuts I posted were quite a stretch for blues, (posted as much for the lyrical sentiment as the musical structure) but that doesn't mean he can't play the blues with BB.

John Mayer is Class A, highly trained, musician, a graduate of the Jazz Institute in Boston, MA. His style is more jazz than blues. He's also an excellent composer. Eventhough he has some blues roots in his style, eventhough he is a fine guitarist and vocalist, I would not call him a true blues artist. I rest my case with the style of solos he made at the Crossroads Guitar Festival with Eric Clapton. But I must confess I love the guys work.
