John Mayer playing EDM just using his guitar strings is the coolest thing you’ll see today

John Mayer continues to amaze – but this time showing off his guitar chops in an insanely creative new way.

The prodigious singer-songwriter is known for his ability to write everything from swoon-worthy ballads to fiery blues tracks, but now he’s branched out into a genre nobody expected him to dabble in.

Electronic Dance Music.

And while you might think that means he’s following the infurating trend of musicians pressing shuffle on their iPods and calling it a ‘DJ Set’, you might want to think again.

Mayer has managed to pull off a scarily impressive cover of Scottish house producer, Calvin Harris’, track ‘Thinking About You;.

While he nails the main riff, the real magic comes in at about the half-way point where he drops the “kick drum” on top – creating an eerily similar rendition of the summer hit, but without the help of Ableton Live.

Who knows, could this be the beginning of a Mayer-Harris collaboration?

They’ve both had bitter break-ups with Taylor Swift, so I’m sure they wouldn’t be lacking in subject material.

Live EDM 🍭
