Unit 1: Acoustic John

Welcome to the first part of our John Mayer course! We will be looking over all aspects of John's playing style, starting with his acoustic playing. John has a unique acoustic style where he uses a sort of 'claw hammer' technique to add percussion and extremely groovy elements to his songs. We will specifically be analysing how John achieves the effect from the live version of 'Neon', which is an extremely challenging part, so get ready to put some practice time in!
