Welcome to this In Your Atmosphere Guitar Tutorial by the one and only John Mayer!
This track is an absolute banger on the acoustic guitar, and is one of my favourite John Mayer songs. It’s a shame this song never saw a full studio recording but there’s also something very special about it being a live only song. The song was made popular about being performed on the Where The Light Is DVD which is in my opinion, the greatest music DVD of all time (try to change my mind!).  Although the song structure is simple at it’s core, there’s an array of difficult chord shapes, subtle techniques like natural harmonics and hammer ons that make it tougher than your usual acoustic song. On top of that you will need to get your guitar into open Esus2 tuning (E B E F# B e). In the video I teach you how to play all the parts, don’t be discouraged if you don’t pick it up right away. It’s definitely a song that takes a bit of practice and stretching, but it’s worth it!

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