Performing John Mayer’s song “City Love” on my ukulele. I want to do a proper video of this for YouTube, ideally on my actual camcorder and not with my laptop webcam… but this is too good a version not to share, if I may say so.
I think this was the first song I ever heard from John. He performed on SNL in 2003 and he played City Love and Clarity, but I don’t remember which was first. I just remember that I loved him immediately.
When I was in New York, I spent an appalling amount of my travel budget on sheet music. It was kind of dumb. But now I have some beautiful books of John Mayer sheets and can play all my favorite songs of his. So… worth it?
Also: City Love cover comin’ your way pretty soon.

You MUST listen to all of these, if you haven’t already. They are the best of the best, IMO. These are the albums I would happily take with me on a desert island and listen to on loop for the rest of my life.
Stop This Train with Max on guitar! He’s a pretty cool kid. (Very sorry that I cut my head off!)
