Welcome to this New Light Guitar Tutorial by John Mayer!
John’s latest single is absolute gold – he’s done everything perfectly here from the amazing hooks, the beautiful solo to the hilarious video clip made for the song. If you haven’t seen it, it’s a must! I think this is his best song he’s released in quite a while, so keen to hear his upcoming work. In the video i’ll teach you how to play the rhythm guitar parts on acoustic as well as the guitar solo in the bridge played on the electric guitar. The solo is easy enough to be played by most beginners so be sure to give it a go!

Enjoy! Like this #newlight video by #johnmayer and subscribe to the channel for more videos in the future!

John Mayer – New Light

[Intro]
Am    D     G     C   C/B
Am    D     G
Ah, ah

[Verse 1]
Am                  D
I'm the boy in your other phone
G                       C              C   C/B   Am
Lighting up inside your drawer at home all alone
                  D
Pushing 40 in the friend zone
G                    C         C     C/B
We talk and then you walk away every day
Am                  D
Oh, you don't think twice 'bout me
G                B7                     Am
And maybe you're right to doubt me, but

[Chorus]
           D                      G
But if you give me just one night
             C           C   C/B  Am
You're gonna see me in a new light
             D                     G
Yeah, if you give me just one night
            C              C   C/B
To meet you underneath the moonlight
Am                D                   G
Oh, I want a take two, I want to breakthrough
                 C          C     C/B  Am
I wanna know the real thing about you
         D                     G
So I can see you in a new light

[Verse 2]
Am                D
Take a ride up to Malibu
G                    C            C       C/B
I just wanna stay to look at you, look at you
Am                           D
What would it matter if your friends knew?
G                    C          C  C/B
Who cares what other people say anyway
Am            D
Oh, we can go far from the end
G              B7                  Am
And make a new world together baby

[Chorus]
              D                      G
'Cause if you give me just one night
             C           C     C/B  Am
You're gonna see me in a new light
             D                      G
Yeah, if you give me just one night
            C              C   C/B
To meet you underneath the moonlight
Am                D                   G
Oh, I want a take two, I want to breakthrough
                 C           C    C/B Am
I wanna know the real thing about you
         D                      G
So I can see you in a new light

[Bridge]
G          C
Em         D

[Solo]
Am    D     G    C   C  C/B
Am    D     G    Em

[Chorus]
Am             D                      G
Yeah, if you give me just one night
          C           C   C/B  Am
You gonna see me in a new light
             D                      G
Yeah, if you give me just one night
            C              C   C/B
To meet you underneath the moonlight

[Outro]
Am
What do I do with all this?
D                          G                                     C   C  C/B
What do I do with all this love that's running through my veins for you
(Repeat to end)
