I'm not a big fan of Mayer but I do respect his ability to play guitar. I thought this performance was quite passionate and should be given the circumstance. Thought I'd share for those of you have not seen it.

Really nice performance, thanks for sharing Skennington!
The tune sounds very familiar to me, probably heard it years ago but can't recall it right now...

I was in LA when the unfortunate event took place... The entire Walk of Fame was crowded, and we had to take another route to get back to the hotel ! A very touching and sad ceremony, repeatedly displayed on CNN for weeks, making it impossible for anyone to miss it ! smile.gif

I hadn't heard of John Mayer before, but I love his guitar playing ! smile.gif

yes it was working a couple of hours ago and now says "This video has been removed due to terms of use violation.". Looks like someone posted an illegal video.

Youtube is catching pretty much all copyright infringements nowadays. If not right away, they will get it. All stems from Warner Bros...

That was a wonderful video, I saw on tv the other day. I wish John Mayer would play my funeral, no actually I wish Paul Gilbert could....but thats besides the point.
