If you think Norah Jones is more talented than John Mayer you’re either ignorant (meaning you haven’t listened to their albums) or smoking crack. Possibly both. Norah Jones has a far better voice, but that’s the only advantage she has. It’s entirely possible Mayer knows more about jazz than she does.

Anyway, Mayer pisses me off because I think he’s an arrogant jerk but he’s so undeniably talented it’s depressing. Me and Jieun watched his concert DVD over the weekend and my reaction was exactly like that of the Sports Guy watching him at the Grammies – pure jealousy. I dunno, just Jieun was enjoying it a bit too much. Anyway yeah, again, I hate him for it but he’s a guitar god. Incredible acoustic work, like he has a folk background, but then amazing electric chops. The guy covers Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix. And he’s in his early 20s. It’s deeply depressing. But yeah, if you’re a guitar player, his concert DVD is pretty great.
