Good Friday to you,
Sorry I’m late today, I was teaching band ALL morning and lunch so I’m scarfing food down, writing and getting ready to teach history all at once!
I’m going to review John Mayer in general today because he’s a strange anomaly in the world right now. First off a quick background of my John Mayer listenings.
I was introduced to John’s music when I was in grade 11 by many of the young ladies that I hung out with. I was a bit of an elitist and thought that they couldn’t pick good music to listen to so I gave Mayer the cold shoulder. Of course if you want to catch the interest of the ladies it helps to understand/learn what they like. So…I bought ‘Room for Squares’ (Ya I bought CDs back then) and…WOW! Lots of it is cliche adult contemporary stuff but there are some killer funky blues jams that pop out in the middle of songs. So I started listening a bit closer and investigating the man. I found that he was educated in music and became more and more impressed with his great stuff. ‘Continuum’ went closer to the blues and I am all for John Mayer now.
Have a good weekend ya’ll
