First couple times i watched this performance I thought Keith Urban's solo was great. Then if you watch close, he actually has a guitar strap malfunction in the middle of this solo and scrambles to get it back on, mean while John Mayer cleary sees and wants to help. But Keith gets it together right in time to get right back into the solo. Makes the solo even greater when you know that he had this malfunction, but keep his cool and went right back into the solo without a hitch, can barely tell. Both brilliant guitar players.

Your ability to illustrate the important elements of these performances, and the enthusiasm with which you do it, makes watching you videos addictive, fun and educational. Although of course while being entertaining and educational, your videos are also rather inspirational, for guitar aficionados like myself (who will never be professional but dream of one day to play a complete song without mistakes) Your videos bring down to earth and give a glimpse of that mysterious realm of virtuoso guitar players like Clapton, et al. by showing that it's based on theory, but enhance by talent.. To make a long story short: DAMN!!

Guitar Pilgrim, I love your videos. What video of yours discusses your guitars, pickups, What Amp you use, and effects, to get that thick, raunchy, but not too nasty overdrive or distortion. I would like a simple setup that a simpleton like me can dial in. Would appreciated a nice intro to your gear and playing style. Thanks so much. Every time I come on here I like what you are doing, so had to subscribe to your channel.

The owner of this channel is not, in any way, less competent than the persons he is talking about. You are a very good player too, in fact, when you immitate the play, most of the time you generate better sound. Cheers from Indonesia.

im loving your teaching style ... if only i had this 40 years ago ... i would be an ...old god.. seriously though ... your enthusiasm , the happy time vibe ...all the encouragement ... amazing yup when i was learning it was all threats and deadlines ... made me hate the trumpet and singing ... im ok now on upright bass , keys and stringed instruments ( various) ... including way too many guitars ( cant find a workhorse favourite ) keep up the good work ...it REALLY IS good... might i suggest a lesson on how to integrate with other musicians ... like how to jam with other ppl without stepping on their toes thank you again from the bottom of my heart ...you really have made my day just finding you

Solo's like these have been played for years and years. By many many artists. It's great that the next/todays generation should have their own interpretations of what are the same scales/notes that have been played since the birth of Rock and Roll.

Great guitarists doing a not so great cover of this song. I appreciate the analysis of their attempt by Pilgrim and the tabs. The voicings of the chords are awkward. No doubt the two can both play the hell out the guitar but I am not getting the greatness of this piece. One thing that I can say is that I am a lot better of a guitar player than I give myself credit.

Let me say it again: you are the BEST guitar teacher on RUvid!

Keith Urban kicked off his career playing a bar gig every Friday night at the Normanby Hotel in Brisbane. I was a regular. He was a handy lad on a 'jo too, and could also pull off some harp.

Urban is more original ...
Leigh Anne Thomas
Interesting! I stopped listening to what came on the radio once I got to be a teen and figured out most of the 'hits' were actual flops. So, and missed both of these guys good stuff. I would like to hear them more now after watching this video based more on the musicianship. Waiting for John to pop out his Layla. I know he's got it in him but he's said during the shut down that he's not into writing. I reckon just not inspired enough.

I’m sorry but noodling around over two chords no matter how tasteful doesn’t make you an insane guitar player...they’re great for sure but thoroughly overrated.
jj Month ago
Forturizer Gaming I just think a lot of good guitarists in this world can do what they did and they get more recognition simply because they’re famous recording artists. If some session player played these exact parts people would think it was great but not amazing or groundbreaking
Forturizer Gaming
but it does though the feeling and emotion they put into playing is insane, even if they only played one note the whole solo they could still make it sound amazing. you don't have to be flashy to be an insane guitar player. the amount of chords you play over the top off doesn't make you any better or worse either.

Urban has those distinct vocal guitar lines that don't fall into the "guitar licks" catalog. I'm a huge John Mayer fanboy, and I think that his playing in this song may have been a bit cleaner, and I love his blues influence, but I think that most non-guitar players would gravitate towards the melodic lines of Keith Urban in this instance. Excellent video!

I saw Keith Urban playing in a bar in Melbourne back in the early 90s. I've been playing for 45 yrs so I'm not impressed easily. I remember thinking Wow that guy is really fuchen good and it was no surprise to me when he became famous. Excellent breakdown of their solos and really nice playing bro... really nice.👍

Great analysis. Both are awesome guitar players, but John is more technically knowledgeable and advanced. I would bet John did the arrangement because that open F#m is something he would totally do.
