A cover of John Mayer’s Slow Dancing In A Burning Room
January 29, 2021
Not many artists impacted me more than John Mayer. I remember watching “Where The Light Is” (a live DVD concert of his) sometimes 3 times in a day, no lie. I can literally sing (not play) everything he does on that show.
I am sure that most kids that get going on their acoustic guitar idolise John Mayer, I did, and still do. What I find genius about his career and sound is how he took his rather obvious passion for blues but managed to infuse a certain amount of pop into it, and thus making us all fall in love with his unique vibe.
Between us, there was a time I wanted to get the same tattoo that he has, but we won’t repeat this, haha.
Anyway, it’s hard to do a cover of an artist you admire as much as I do Mr Mayer, but this song, Slow Dancing In A Burning Room is a beautiful piece of music, incredibly written and relatively easy to play. I hope you guys enjoy my take on it.
