>John Mayer is a respected musician in blues and jazz circles
What's the hate, /mu/?
He's good at pretending to be good at the guitar, but despite his noodling just ends up being noodling and not part of the song. His solos aren't memorable and I feel like the only reason they ever happen is so he can be like "look, I listen to Stevie ray and Hendrix, listen to me 40 year old dads!"
It sounds like he's good, but there's just no soul or heart in his playing. It's pointless.
