Title: THE GRAVITY CLUB - Followers of John Mayer
Post by: gitarakista27 on February 27, 2008, 06:37:42 PM
I always wanted to start a thread about my favorite guitar player and probably favorite musician. If my sister never bought Any Given Thursday and Room for Squares, i would have never learned to play guitar. And even when he made Heavier things, i still went on to play his songs. Lalo na nung lumabas ang Continuum, where he showed another kind of "heavy" with his sound evolving further. And when he released "TRY!" with Pino Paladino and Steve Jordan, he introduced me to blues. Masyado na siyang madaming nagawa para sakin. In terms of style, he has influenced me and in terms of genre, he opened me to new sounds. Dati puro ROCK lang ang tugtugan ko ngayon mas lumawak. Jazz nalang di ko pa naeexplore pero masyado pang madameng kelangan matutunan sa Blues so i'll venture into jazz after i graduate nalang.

This is my side. I idolize John Mayer. I think he'd go very far in the blues-rock world and he'd grow old to be a legend like Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix or Jeff Beck(hehehe puro strat player noh?). Pero I want to hear your side my fellow forumites. Pabor ba kayo sakanya? do you like him? do you hate him or call him "baduy"? do you think he's lame or he sucks? sige na tell me. i'm so friggin' curious lang. hehehehhe ok lang kahet i-bash nyo siya. you have your opinion and i have mine. :-D

I'm a fan. :wink:
I learned to appreciate the blues because of John Mayer's music. It served as a transition from the usual pop/rock music.\

During the "Room for Squares" album, I thought he was just another Lifehouse, Dave Matthews-sounding artist. And "Your Body Is A Wonderland" has gotten me a few places too. :lol:
When Continuum came out, I was surprised with his new sound. That's when I started listening to the albums between Continuum & Room for Squares.

His Room for Squares album, I think, served as a way for him to be introduced to a lot of ears. I like how he turned away from pop, & went on to play his own style of blues. I hope he doesn't sell out - I think he's doing fine as is.

As a guitarist, I think he can really go a long way. There's a lot of soul in his playing. He's very young compared to Clapton & the other blues greats, so I look forward to what he can do in the future.

Let's just say that he also influenced my choice on what kind of guitar to play. (check avatar)

John Mayer is a great guitarist/singer/writer/performer. He truly belongs to the stage, which is evident when you listen to his live album Any Given Thursday. Can anyone here play Neon while singing it? :D

ang hirap!!! talgang mastered na nya ang mga finger technique, for electric or acoustic guitar. kaya napaka flexible nya. at di din sya purist or one sided. i think eric clapton was once a bit of a purist to blues and blues rock dati but please correct me if i am wrong.

me likey John Mayer's music kahit nung first album to present...

versatile...ive read sa interviews na blues influenced talaga sya
covering songs sa idol niya na si SRV...and u could definitely hear yung
influence sa playing niya lalo na pag electric stuff...his nuance and tone
obvious...

his cover of Bold As Love kicks ass! Hendrix would be proud!!!

Bakit magiging "hindi Okay"? AHHA! He's pretty good, he's got GREAT tone and very creative lines, both aspects of his playing are now, thankfully, more prevalent than ever because of his nascent love for putting more guitar work into his tunes. Pero for some reason he never became a "SUPER DUPER IDOL" of mine, sadly, because I preffer his guitar teacher Tomo Fujita. Great player i like listening to, though. Ang ganda ng demo niya of his two rock amp with Slowdancing in a burning room. Tone to DIE for and so much soul.

well, meron kasi sir nababaduyan kay JM. He's great talga para sa akin pero i just want to know why some people consider him as "icky", "faggy" or "someone that stole riffs from SRV and claim as his own".

eto pa

The next SRV. :wink:

SRV? hmmmm i beg to differ. Surely he had an obsesion with SRV. He had the initials "SRV" tattooed over his deltoid muscle and his tone smells, sounds and bounces like SRV's tone pero JM, in my opinion is his own guitarist. May significant influence is SRV sakanya pero di naman siya SRV impersonator na sinasabi nila... his riffs may have a little SRV but i know he's not trying to copy SRV. Di lang nya maiwasan siguro un kasi malaki talga ang influence nya.

John Mayer is one of the most underrated guitarists we have today.
If you're not convinced of how talented this man is, just listen to the bluesier version of "Gravity" and his cover of Hendrix's "Wait till Tomorrow" off of his John Mayer Trio CD "Try"

oki...parang journey pala ang pakikinig sa genre. Kung ano ano madadaanan mo and you go back to places you love. Siguro ako forever traveler. I always want to try new things.

Parang si JM din. He switches genres in his playing but always goes back and doesn't stay in one thing for so long. nakakakbelib talaga...

Tomo Fujita. EXTREMELY underrated guitar player/teacher at berkelee. John mayer's teacher. Extremely versatile guitarist. Studied with Joe Pass. Excellent tone, taste and phrasing. He was the guitarist in the original production of the musical "Rent" and wrote that funky guitar part on "Seasons of Love". Ganda ng 1st album niya "Put on your Funk Face" which i can't stop listening to.

His most famous tune "Just Funky":

Clip from his instructional video "Accelerate Your Guitar Playing":
feature=related

Playin at the Fuchs audio booth:
(blues)
(Soul-Jazz)

His youtube channel:
http://uk.youtube.com/user/TomoFujitaMusic

anyway, back to John mayer. Yeah. "Slow dancing in a burning room" is one of my favorite riffs to play and listen to!

nuong una ayaw na ayaw ko si JM, kala ko nakiki- Dave Mathews lang sya, e sobrang trip ko si DMB.

Then, na basa ko ang totoong hilig nya. Blues. At napanuod ko pa sya sa YouTube. sabi ko "aba'y!"

John Mayer Trio ang nag cemento sa listahan ko ng magagaling na gitarista.

AT, isa din pala syang stand-up comic!

Mabuhay ka John Mayer, sana magkaroon ako ng sig series mong strat!  :mrgreen:

oo nga noh. sounds a lot like john. pati ung banda medjo similar sa timpla niya nung Any Given Thursday at Room for squares. Kasi may keyboard na similar ang tone. Tapos strat user pa.

Ang main difference na napansin ko ay walang vocals. I think John Mayer is also an underrated vocalist. He writes beautiful songs and sings them from the heart kaya pag dating sa gitara perfect ang timpla.. eto example. best example

please watch

i started appreciating the blues way back '96 when i was 26 thu SRV, Clapton, Hendrix and BB king. i used to play the bass with my band and just play... but last year, when i started playing again (now with the guitar), this kid (JM), gave me a different perspective of the Blues.. now, i just like how he plays, and i think i wanted to play the way he does.. a little SRV influence, nice. specially when i discovered my hands were meant for a strat or a tele... funny lang how he looks like when he feels the blues while playing..

I really dont think John Mayer is underrated at all. He is known pretty much for his guitar playing and singing. I think hindi lang masyado naaappreciate ng majority ng listeners nya yung technicality ng ginagawa nya. For most of them its just, "pang chiks to ah". :D The guy's a genius.

+1K hehehehe.. ganun naman talaga eh, pag hawak mo gitara, "pang chiks to..." hehehehehe.. but seriously, at first, i thought he wa the "Michael Franks" of the millennium.. but he's just himself with a little SRV influence..

joke lang yan ah...

he's got influences from the three and he kinda sounded like dave matthews when he did room for squares but the bottom line is, he's his own musician. He's not trying to copy anyone, but he can't help it if naemulate nya sila kung minsan kasi malaki influence niya sa kanya (ewan ko kung kasama jan si Dave Matthews).

Saw him at the San Jose HP Pavillion. He's great to see live. He's a funny man and he's got his own style.

Ang mahirap nga lang kasi eh hindi maiiwasan na i-compare at i-relate and style ng isang musikero sa ibang musikero. The new generation who don't really listen to blues now have him to thank for introducing it to them, however he plays it.

He's ok by my book.

schnitzerz4, magkano mayer strat? as in signature model yan? gusto ko rin...

btw, mayer uses semi-hollow with humbuckers also, pero ibang klase talaga tone nya sa single coils.. anybody knows what kind of pickups he uses? I placed fenderlace sensors on my guitar alang-alang kay sir eric clapton. ano kaya gamit ni JM?

Post by: lovecore on March 01, 2008, 05:20:08 AM
Well, to get it out of the way, I'm a HUGE fan...

contribute lang ako ng konting info na alam ko.

Yung big dipper pups, I'm not sure if It's available separately. Only place you can find them in is ebay... meaning kinarne cuz those pups only come with the John Mayer sig strat... which leads me to an answer to one question posted....

yes may sig strat si john mayer. may shoreline gold w racing stripe, charcoal frost with stripe din (limited to 100), 3tone burst, cypress mica (limited din), and alpine white. around 1500++ dollars.

I guess for most of us forum members who are deeply into music and guitar playing, we'll appreciate mayer. most of those who diss him initially are the purists. Sometimes those who hate pop... hey it's hard to make a pop song IMO hehehe but then they miss out on that thing that we see in him... his skill in playing guitar, songwriting, and overall musicianship. He's awesome. great guitar player. If you do the whole research re his music career and life, you'll be surprised and you'll appreciate him more. ibang klase tlaga.

The comparisons will always be there but John mayer is John mayer much like you are you and kaw lang ang nakakagawa ng musika na mula sayo. It's inevitable that our influences will show in our playing. It doesn't mean we're not unique.

Aliw nga si Tomo he posted in a forum how happy he was when John handed hiim a sig strat as a gift. aliw...

I guess he is underrated in the sense that he doesn't get enough recognition as a serious, skillfull and talented artist... much more as a blues player. His early career writing AWESOME pop songs may have somehow "tarnished" his "credibility" to be taken seriously by SOME people. I'm just glad that in the music circle here and internationally, they see it and RECOGNIZE. Playing on the stage with the blues greats is I guesse enough proof that he's bein taken seriously.

hayop si John. I'm such a fan I TRY to buy what I can from his setup haha  :lol:

I'm one of the few that thinks his best album is still his first album (room for squares or yung acoustic album almost pareho naman songs).  What got me hooked was his killer lines like "Most my memories have escaped me or confused themselves with dreams", awesome songwriting and creativity, swak ang mga lyrics.  Yun I think is where his true genious is - music that when you hear you can relate to, lalo na mga bedroom / aspiring musicians.

Nagulat nga ako when I heard dun sa concert na blues pala ang style nya.  Malaking plus sakin syempre.  Not to mention iilan na lang ang pag-pinanood mo ng live eh sobrang galing magperform at hindi repetitive.

okay sya for me. kasi gumanda image ng pop dahil sa kanya.
and dahil sa room for squares, it got me into playing other stuff other words when i was starting out.
kumbaga napatalon ako ng isang level sa pag-aaral dahil gaganda ng riffs nya.  :-D

room for squares pa lang ang napakinggan ko, pero ito yung isa sa mga album na naenjoy ko pakinggan ang bawat track. in short, walang tapon. husay!

at naalala ko nung mga panahong iyon, umabot sa puntong nagvandal ako ng lyrics ng Not Myself sa upuan ko sa klase. haha.

Suppose I said
I am on my best behavior
And there are times
I lose my worried mind
Would you want me when I'm not myself?
Wait it out while I am someone else?
Suppose I said
Colors change for no good reason
And words will go
From poetry to prose
Would you want me when I'm not myself?
Wait it out while I am someone else?
And I, in time, will come around
I always do for you
Suppose I said
You're my saving grace?

Post by: gitarakista27 on March 02, 2008, 12:22:54 PM
eto naman...unreleased song niya. i don't think you've heard of this one before so please look it up.heheheh

Why did you mess with forever

I came by to get my things
thank you for getting the door
but I don't feel right walking in no more...

You think it's cold
I did my crying at home
and I'm numb now
I'm numb now
Before I'm on my way
I've one more thing to ask
Was it worth the price you paid
for my never coming back?
Why did you mess with forever? Oh ooo......
such a long time
to be unkind
Why did you mess with forever?

Oh Yeah...

Don't you call me cruel
cruel is what you're making me do
I stick to my rules
I'm at odds with me now
So say go, go on, go to hell and stay...
Before I'm on my way
I've one more thing to ask
Was it worth the price you paid
for my never coming back
Why did you mess with forever? Oh, oooo....
such a long time
to be unkind
Why did you mess with forever?
You ask to kiss me once goodbye
but you already did on somebody else's lips

Oh, oh, oh, oh-a-oh....

Tell the tiny chemicals
the ones you hold responsible

They lost me,
you lost me

Now everything inside me tells me I should run to you
and throw my arms around you
Hold your steaming crying cheek against my own
and tell you nothing's wrong

But a wrong is what you were when you forgot
that we were going on
we were going on
we were going on.....

Tell me why did, why did you mess with forever? Oh, oooo.....
such a long time
to be unkind
why did you mess with forever?

Where is here for you?

I can say that its available where I am. Where you at? I'm in San Francisco.

Hahaha... sori bout that dude. Here for me is the Philippines. Well, awesome tone JM has.. bulk of it must come from the pickups and his playing style, so that's why i'd love to get my hands on big dippers.. (at least getting closer to that fat crystal sound), i don't know. But havin' lace sensors quite nice as well so no worries :-D

I guess this is supposed to be in the classifieds but:

the_nong - bro try mo ebay for big dippers. alam ko may nagkakarne ng mayers strat eh. serious

tim - I also have lace sensors (gold) on my strat. ok naman. I like how clean it is (no hum) but it doesn't give me that quack I'm after. it's nice and all but the tone isn't there for me at least. better try one for yourself first before diving in. Sabi naman nila it's more of the classic 50s or 60s strat yata na more chime etc. so ayun  :-D

Dami palang fans ni JM.  By the way, sino nakakaalam dito ng story behind the guitar he uses for Grammy, yung beat up strat?

the sunburst? maganda un. search mo "abbey road john mayer" sa youtube.com. makita mo gamitin nya. i think that strat is from fender's custom shop and pina-relic nya. ganda talaga. if i'm not mistaken, yan ung guitar na nasa avatar ni the_nong. anyway i think that strat is his favorite. Eto at ung monterey stratocaster nya na ginamit sa music video ng "who did you think i was". my God nangangarap din ako ng monterey stray. there were only 210 made on this earth.....

tim_cada:
lace sensors? i think maganda din yan. ang alam ko gumagamit din si Johnny Greenwood(radiohead) ng LS. but i have yet to try the real thing. i think i remember inofferan ako ng LS sa Yupangco dati. 3k ata.. anyway if di ako makahanap ng big dips, mag tex special muna, at kung wala din, texmex nalang siguro(jimmy vaughn) if swertehin, or kung di maapord o wala talaga, papatandain ko nalang ang stock pickups ko to get it extra mature and thick kasama na din sa pagsettle ng wood para warmer.

lovecore, gitarakista: actually i do have LS gold on my strat neck and mid, i do like it but i do agree with lovecore, kulang sa kagat. i just wanted to know what you guys think of it. Actually, yung tex ang di ko pa nagagamit :-D

big dippers im longing to try.. balitaan pag may nakahanap ha. tingnan ko rin sa ebay. tnx guys!

if you want to hear what tex mex's or texas specials or even big dippers sound like, search mo sa youtube. there are ton of people that record themselves playing with vintage guitars outfitted with special pickups(maganda din ung mga custon reverse wound...waaaaaaaaah). or you can listen to john mayer's "man on the side"! gandang crystal clear bouncy quack tone.

i originally wanted a john mayer sig strat, but it wasn't available when i traded my PRS at guitar center.

i got a different strat, which i am really happy with...

dream strat would be a fender custom shop relic, with big dipper pups from the john mayer sig.... :lol:

i have been informed by my boss that it's gonna cost $3-4k....no joke! damn i wish i have a higher paying job! :-D

but IMHO the tone JM has might not be original, but it's still badass!

Post by: gitarakista27 on March 04, 2008, 07:39:02 AM
the JM sig strat was worth 16000 HKD when i was at tom lee. so thats about $2051.00.hmmm so magpacustom ka ng guitar na $3-4k? pwede rin. para orig talaga. you can name it the blues2death signature strat. one of a kind lang! hahahahahha

I always wanted to start a thread about my favorite guitar player and probably favorite musician. If my sister never bought Any Given Thursday and Room for Squares, i would have never learned to play guitar. And even when he made Heavier things, i still went on to play his songs. Lalo na nung lumabas ang Continuum, where he showed another kind of "heavy" with his sound evolving further. And when he released "TRY!" with Pino Paladino and Steve Jordan, he introduced me to blues. Masyado na siyang madaming nagawa para sakin. In terms of style, he has influenced me and in terms of genre, he opened me to new sounds. Dati puro ROCK lang ang tugtugan ko ngayon mas lumawak. Jazz nalang di ko pa naeexplore pero masyado pang madameng kelangan matutunan sa Blues so i'll venture into jazz after i graduate nalang.

This is my side. I idolize John Mayer. I think he'd go very far in the blues-rock world and he'd grow old to be a legend like Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix or Jeff Beck(hehehe puro strat player noh?). Pero I want to hear your side my fellow forumites. Pabor ba kayo sakanya? do you like him? do you hate him or call him "baduy"? do you think he's lame or he sucks? sige na tell me. i'm so friggin' curious lang. hehehehhe ok lang kahet i-bash nyo siya. you have your opinion and i have mine. :-D

saan nangagaling clean tone niya, slight OD tsaka lead tone niya?

my guess would be sa two rock yung clean tapos lead comes from the dumble? paano naman yung slight overdriven tones niya? clean plus boost?

paiba iba ata. kasi i was reading his blogs dati nung di pa niya binura, he doesnt always bring his dumbles tulad ng pag nasa david letterman siya. swertihan lang daw un if they get to rent real good fender tube amps na vintage. i know ung pedal board niya palage nya dala with his TS808( or ts9 ata), modded BD2, DD-6 at ung wah nya that he uses for "i don't trust myself with loving you" waaaaaaah gandang timpla.

i also read that dati nung bandang early '07 nagstart din siya magtinker with DIY pedals. nagpost siya ng pics sa blog niya and halos ala 'papa bear' ang itsura. striped down with weird angled knobs. para saken mas profesional ang itsura nun. i think i remember he made a delay and a chorus pedal ata. and he even wrote na "its not fun to touch the tip of a soldering iron". di pa siya siguro sanay...:)

Love JM! Continuum is one of the albums I pop in the CD player to put on Sleep mode after 30 mins :) It's such a well balanced album that's real easy to listen to but very musically inspiring at the same time. Then there's the album, Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs by Derek and the Dominos that I alternate with that as well. (Derek=Eric Clapton btw) Haven't heard Try tho... is it available already in M1?

Waha I know what you mean bro. It's a brilliant move for JM actually to start as a Pop Musician before heading into material that's closer to his heart. You just won't get the same cred (nor the album sales) if you did this in reverse. So I guess that draws a very sad picture of what the music industry is like. You're not a Musician if you don't have an MTV [strawberry] ironic isn't it?).

Do you have a band? What genre? I'm looking to put up a Blues Trio and as you might have guessed, nahihirapan ako dahil halos walang musician sa generation natin ang mahilig sa blues.

EDIT: Dont take his "email" thing in his website too seriously. First, he surely doesn't have time to answer those emails at all if he even reads 'em. Second, and if you're lucky enough, somebody else will answer pretending to be John for obvious reasons.

no i actually don't have a band right now. Just a crappy college band that plays half a gig a month and i actually don't like the stuff they like. So i'm free as a bird. Nagkakaagiw na nga ata yung highway one tele ko sa bahay.

Based on the interview articles that I've been reading, and also his blog - John Mayer is not a blues guy, his a pop guy with blues influences.  So his main music will most probably still be within the realm of pop, not that there is anything wrong with that, with some hints of blues.  From time to time, he will probably lash out with some TRIOesque album, but that will be in a 1 blues : 4 pop ratio.

Yes. i also think that there is a sense of POP in his music. and yes there is nothing wrong with that. the problem with us is we often see Pop music as Bubble gum POP (NSYNC, BSB, Miley Cyrus, etc) alone.

My sister was also the one who introduced me to his music. I just realized a couple of years after that his music was really good, then i tried playing them and liked it.

It's good to know that there are a lot of John Mayer fans here, some of my friends don't know why i appreciate his music and that just pisses me off when they ask me that. Anyway I'm glad that i saw this topic.

Sana may maka jam akong mga john mayer followes din, haven't met anyone who plays my king of music. Good thing i saw this thread.  :-D

nice find. i hated the comments of some "know it all" people dun sa youtube. they kept on comparing two different guitarists, parang: a vs b palagi etc... pero  talagang magkaiba naman ang style.

who would compare mayer with van halen? diba? they're so different man! incomparable! they're both good,(actually, great dapat) in their own individual style! i don't think that the solo is bad! i think it's magnificent kahit ba ikumpara kay EVH! anyway, baka Mayer fan lang talaga ako:)

ok, initial reactions to the jm strat since I haven't found the time for a proper photo shoot...

MISMO mga dudes. I love it to bits. It's definitely worth all the hard work and sacrifices I put in to get it.

I know tone is relative to the player so of course, these are just my own opinions...

The sound's awesome. I have a Fender strat plus 40th anniv release which is one of my babies and the JM strat wins over it big time. The sound is fuller, the tone is thick and warm, and even playing with it unplugged is something else. i definitely can say it's because of the big dipper pups as I've got lace gold's on my other strat. It's really something else. the quack I'm looking for is right on... It's actually the tone I'm after and I'm so blessed to finally be able to own my dream guitar and get the tone I was searching for in it.  If God put a dream in your head, it means you'll get it :-D

And onto another topic I'd like to add...

i've been tryin do the whole thumb-for-the-bass-string chords that he does and it's either I'm doing it the wrong way or my hand is too small... I'm thinking it may be his advantage of having big hands/long fingers... boo! it's either I get to play the top notes nicely but miss the bass string or hit the bass string but have a hard time hitting the top notes. hehe ako lang ba?
Title: Re: THE GRAVITY CLUB - Followers of John Mayer
Post by: captainbackfire on March 26, 2008, 07:27:24 AM
Yeah, he's definitely got a huge advantage there. I think you could practice it away. I have a friend whos like 5'2 and has small hands but plays finger style really good with only his thumb and pointing finger.

He uses Two Rock amps which are basically top of the line crafted amps based on the dumble. Im not sure, I just want to say that the main thing that makes his tone is the amp. When it comes to Two Rocks, I just dont know. Thats why I'm going for his AGT era tone wherein he mainly used his Super Reverb. Remember John Mayer is a "Guitar - Amp" guy. As for the overdrive, its a whole new thing to discover after you've got your first tube amp. Basically any [gooey brown stuff] overdrive CAN work well on a good tube amp.

Yeah maybe his tone change which is somewhat parallel with his twist-of-fate blues career did something about getting the older ones to notice him. I like the balladeer tone he always had though. So I'm not gunning for a Two Rock unless I win money or something.

Post by: PRSMan on March 26, 2008, 08:26:06 AM
A pre-owned Two Rock can be affordable... or at least significantly cheaper than a brand new one.  You can find classics, customs, Rubys, Emmies, etc. that are in the 2K+ range.

lemme just re-post:

Hey (gear) guys and gals -


I thought it might be fun to post a little something regarding gear, specifically that endless hunt for our guitar tone. It’s as much of an obsession for me as it is for some of you, and I want to share a little of what I’ve learned over the past few years. I read through some of the posts in this part of the forum, and I can’t get over how much of a positive spin you’ve put on the guitar community. It’s has a tendency to be jaded, and I love to see that you’re getting happiness and fulfillment out of it and not frustration.

There are some misconceptions that seem to constantly perpetuate, and I want to try and bust one of them up right now. Oh, and it should be noted throughout that this all applies to my take on tone. If you like heavy metal, you’ll probably disagree with everything I have to say.

Distortion pedals – One thing to keep in mind with distortion – I should say overdrive pedals, so as to distinguish them from fuzz pedals, which is more of an effect unto itself - is that they’re really made to simulate overdriving an amp naturally. Vintage tube amps have a threshold where they break up past a certain volume. A distortion pedal is used to make that ‘break up sound’ happen at lower volumes, which is a reasonable expectation. You can’t turn a ‘65 Deluxe Reverb to ‘8’ in your bedroom without making a lot of people miserable. Stevie Ray Vaughan used an Ibanez Tube Screamer (TS-808) , which in the 1980s was regarded as kind of a cheap pedal. Here’s the misconception; he didn’t really use that much distortion at all. He did when he was going for that Jimi sound, but listen to most any early SRV tune and you won’t hear as much break-up as you might think. I hear people all the time (I even remember hearing myself) who just dime the ‘drive knob’ and think the ‘volume’ is a master knob for it. It’s a concept known as “gain staging” - it has to do with the way that the volume of each part of your signal chain interacts with the next. The ‘volume’ knob of an 808 is the most important. That’s by definition, the overdrive part of it. The “overdrive” should be thought of as the “cheat” knob. Remember this – kicking on distortion should make your guitar louder, not quieter. Quiet sounding loud is just strange. Setting gain staging will make sure that when you kick the pedal on, your guitar signal will get appropriately louder. Again – Stevie Ray used so much less distortion than you can possibly imagine. He was loud, and the way it hit the tape (and your ear) made that sound. I use a vintage 808, which has some properties that I like, but it is by no means the holy grail of tone. It has it’s place, though. Everything does. Just remember that turning that “cheat” knob too high also cheats you of the natural tonal characteristics of your guitar. Do work that volume knob, though.
So what if you don’t have the 600 bucks for an 808? Don’t even worry about it. There are so many pedals designed to emulate it, it’s not even funny. Purists want the original 808 because of some fairly esoteric microchip differences. The Voodoo Labs Sparkle Drive is somewhat close, (and dirt cheap!) but it can also have a really harsh high end. (What’s in a name, right?) I think the Fulltone Fulldrive 2 is a FANTASTIC update on the 808. The Keeley-modded TS-808 reissue is very close to an 808. These pedals are what I call “paint chip” close. If you didn’t have an original 808 to A/B with, you wouldn’t know what you were missing. If you’re looking for a good “edgey” tone, check out the Marshall Bluesbreaker pedal from the early ‘90s. Not the BB-2 (bad), but the original. It’s a great beefy sound that colors strat pickups in a really interesting way. The tone knob is like a “B.B.” dial. If you feel like your guitar just won’t cut it in the mix with your band, but you don’t necessarily want more overdrive, check out the Fulltone Fat-Boost, or the Keeley Katana. Kick it on for a solo, and it’s like having your own personal mixing engineer ride your fader. I use a Keeley-modded Boss BD-2 pedal as well. It’s got it’s own thing going on, and I like it. So many pedals are cool, and most every one has a place for something. It’s fun to listen to a pedal and then play to it’s strengths.
Oh, here’s another misconception: True bypass is all-around better than buffered (regular) bypass. Not so. Think of your guitar cable as a hose, and your guitar only pushes a certain amount of water pressure out of it. After a certain length, you’re going to need some more pressure to squeeze the water out. True-bypass takes the “in” and “out” cables of a pedal and connects them as if they were one long hose. After a certain length, you’ll get some pretty hefty tone loss. I learned this when I unplugged my guitar from my pedal switcher and went straight into the amp. Guitar pedals without the TB serve as a buffer for the signal, and naturally keep that water flow going. Yes, sometimes the trade-off can be harsh; some pedals, while buffering your signal, can also adversely color it, even when in bypass mode. That’s a good time to think TB. True bypass is a concept that only really took off as a selling point over the last 5 years or so. It won’t kill you to have it, but it certainly isn’t the only reason to get a pedal over another one without it.

I Hope that helps you out a little bit. There are so many other things I want to share with you, where to put your money, where to save it... Maybe I’ll get to it all over time. I can’t think of anything more exciting than tone hunting, and I hope you can’t either.

PLAY ON

JM

Title: Re: THE GRAVITY CLUB - Followers of John Mayer
Post by: lovecore on April 05, 2008, 03:51:27 AM
here's a nice read

John Mayer took a very hands-on approach to the development of his Martin signature model, a modified OM-28 with a low-profile neck with a nut width of 1 11/16 inches and 2 1/8-inch spacing between the first and sixth strings at the saddle that feels comfortable to a player raised on electrics, and a Martin Gold+ Natural I undersaddle pickup. In addition to long phone conversations with Martin Guitars' [sausage] Boak, Mayer mocked up the look he wanted (including Macintosh Titanium—inspired aluminum inlay on the bridge and peghead) by editing a photo of an OM-28 he downloaded from the Martin website, and then he headed to Nazareth, Pennsylvania, to see it all come together at the factory. "Isn't it a boyhood dream to have a guitar named after you?" Mayer says. "You'd better be there to watch it happen. The worst thing in the world would be for somebody to hand you a guitar that's got your name on it and it's not the one you want to play or look at."

Mayer begs to differ with those who say all that matters about a guitar is how it sounds. "I believe that guitar players and creators, we're all too scared of sounding superficial, but the bottom line is that when something looks good, it brings things out of you. And so I'd say half of the guitar's qualities are sonic or physical and the other half are cosmetic. All those things factor into the level of inspiration when you pick something up."

Onstage, Mayer runs his Martin through a tuner and an Avalon U5 DI/preamp (www.avalondesign.com) and then straight to the PA with no effects. Mayer raves about the sound of the U5, which he calls a huge improvement over basic direct boxes and well worth the investment.

On the electric side, Mayer pays homage to his original guitar hero and cranks up a Stevie Ray Vaughan model Fender Stratocaster. He's been obsessing over amps lately, playing through hard-to-find Dumbles as well as Victoria's replicas of old Fender tweed amps (www.victoriaamp.com). In concert a MIDI-based Bradshaw switching system controls his delay, distortion, and tremolo pedals, keeping them out of line until they are actually switched on.

"This year has been all about learning the subtle sonics of things—the way that a top wood can change a guitar, the way a three-piece back will change a guitar," Mayer says. "I even learned how you can get a different sound out of an electric guitar by switching the direction of the cable, which I would never have bought into. Jack Joseph Puig takes me out into the control room and says, ‘Listen to this: play, unplug, switch this . . .' And they are totally different! So I've become a bit more of an audiophile."

im a super fan, i guess, all songs, released or unreleased. music or other stuff. it's ok for JM to be as opinionated as he is bcoz he talks with sense. let's play blues, people.. let's jam mayer tracks! covered in rain is the [gooey brown stuff]! you just cant ignore daughters, and comfortable is down right honest! gravity gives me chills everytime i watch him live in youtube. damn!

mejo OT:
pasensya na, help narin, i dont understand how "boosting" works.. how about "cascading" (for overdrive peds).. for example, if  have two ODs (pedal a & b), and I wanna boost pedal A (because for example it's a vintage Ts808) using pedal B (a boston od100).. how should the pedal chain turn out?

in my case: my pedals are TS9, BD-2 and a VD-1. when i play rhythms i just use the BD-2 or the VD-1 (whatever the need is..) pag solos, i kick in the TS-9, either for the dirt or the distortion.. but man, it really sounds good with the BD-2!

i have tested and tried.. this sounds great when the TS-9 comes first in the route. it screams the sound of the guitar (or boosts it) and a dirt overdrives that boosted signal or distorts it.

my two cents worth..

thanks.. so in that case, the "booster" always comes first in the route.. and the "boosted pedal" comes next.. what are your knob settings for the ts and bd? i could actually search these sa mga demos sa youtube but i find it better to actually talk to someone here para mas ma-gets ko. tnx! :-D

not all "booster" pedals comes first. dati naka DOD YJM308 ako. un lang. its the last in the route. it's a pre-amp overdrive.. it boosts the distorted/driven/clean sounds before it, thus, it boosts. pero para sakin, kung TS-9 lang, yan ung 1st. pag YJM308 last..

sorry now lang ako. sa booster pare, iba iba diskarte talaga. It's better if you can try it yourself bro. May mga booster na clean booster lang like the micro amp, dosmos, etc. That's what I do. I use a direct drive then boost the signal lang with the dosmos just to pull up the level of the DD since I like the drive of the DD on its own. Meron din naman you use another od pedal like si Nong to add a different flavor to your "boost" in case you want it to sound different when you kick in the solo. That's where the cascaded drive comes in. In that scenario, you'll have it after your main drive pedal. These examples are to boost or amplify the signal.

If you put the booster before, iba naman lalabas sa drive mo. Sometimes it makes the sound fuller but still retains the current level without any signal amplified. iba iba kse reactions ng drive pedals so pag mas malakas yung pumapasok sa drive, iba yung character nya.

it all boils down to  your preference. I prefer putting my booster after the drive to pull my volume up during solos. masaya na kse ako sa sound ng drive ko.

thanks cy.. onga naman.. if you're ok with the drive, no need to cascade it.. what i do now is this kasi.. OD gain is at 8o'clock level at 12o'clock. then when needed to solo, i pull level using volume pedal. works for me most of the time. though when i need more gain sa solo, i thought using another od to boost is the way to go.. anyway, will try to move things around :-D

OT na pasensya.. but the reason i wanna know about this is coz all these crazy blues guys like mayer, srv, johnson,... uses some kind of boost when they solo sometimes... and it drives me crazy. (good crazy) :- 8-)

no prob man. Our guitar player used to use a vol pedal during solos then i think he tried out the cascaded drive route then bought meashuggar's vol pedal and the rest is history... balik  vol pedal nalang cuz he loves his drive already.

korek, all is up to you talaga.

i have tried using a YJM308 as booster for my OD, and it really boots. with the TS-9 it sounds better before the OD (for me), sinubukan kong lagay after an OD, parang suppressed o sakal ung sound, specially after a distortion.. but when i did the latter, parang bas naging clear ang sound ng OD (di nga lang crunchy, kaya pang ad-lib ko lang), ung sa distortion clear din pero nabawasan ung chug..


(http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g20/the_Nong/wtgse.jpg)

JM's pedal routine. dunno if the TS is before or after the BD-2..
ung nakita ko to, i tried putting the TS-9 after my BD-2, as per my knowledge, to boost the desired signal from the drive. but what i heard was a 'sakal' sound. ngayon, ung before the drive, nag boost siya, un nga lang, hindi ganun ka 'crunchy'..

well, lemme try again bukas..

But some of the posts on this thread sound so girlish and gayish even.  You talk (write?) like tweenies gushing over the latest issue of Teen Beat magazine.

That's just my opinion of course.  Nothing against Mayer.

There's definitely nothing wrong with getting excited.  Medyo iba lang ang dating ng thread na ito.

In some threads, parang navi-visualize mo yung kuwentuhan.  Because of how people write their remarks, some threads make you think of a Dencio's scenario na nagiinuman at alaskahan yung mga members.  Other threads about tips and tricks make you think of a classroom type scenario.

With this thread, parang naalala ko yung mga helpers namin na pinagtitilian si Nora.

Again, just my opinion.

Mabuhay si Mayer!  Great player.  I don't think he deserves to be deemed at the same level as Clapton though... but Mayer is cool nonetheless.

OT: Never wash your hands before or after playing guitar. Wash them 1 to 2 hours before and after.

Why?

Its harmful to your hands daw. I don't know why pero masama daw sa kamay un

And playing with dirty hands makes you neck look cool! hahahahha naiiwan ung libag doon from dirty hands and mas relic daw ang look! hahahhaha haven't tried this pero this is why my cousin said.

Medjo unorthodox ung style of playing nya for modern electric guitar players. He uses a variation of chord shapes  for chords kaya magulat ka if he's playing B or C#m pero iba itsura sa neck. And malimit he uses thumb fretting like SRV and Hendrix.
The first song i learned to play on electric was he City Love when i was 15. It never sounded right until i learned he uses the thumb pala to fret the the bass notes.:)

When he's playing acoustic naman, magaling din. He hits the right notes at the right times.

sports like what sir? in my opinion guitar playing is a more rigorous task for the fingers than playing baseball, basketball, chess, soccer, wresling, bowling, ice hockey, skying, and the sort. Siguro you may have a point if there is a sport with the same tiring activity for the fingers that chalenges your dexterity and the capability of the phalangeal muscles. This is also the same for pianists and violinists and also secretaries, and other white collared workers that sink their fingers into keyboards for hours at a time.

Kahit san ko siya ilapag, i don't worry anymore na baka magasgas, etc.

About the fish naman, I was looking for an SRV type sticker one time then i saw this "Jesus Fish Symbol", eh since gusto kong ipersonalize din ng konti yung guitar, I bought it and syempre because of my faith in jesus..:)

well on the topic of john mayer....

he's great! i've known about that even before continuum.

to me, "no such thing" sounded like the style council at first. my band first circle used to cover songs from the "room for squares" album.

not because it was the hip thing to do, but we all liked his songs.

back to you, neon, city love, my stupid mouth are all good examples of good songwriting, good pop, great guitar statements.

no shredhead, i always loved his chords, rhythm guitar style and his SRV--blues charged licks even if the songs he was doing weren't blues.

still can't get over that album. heavier things and the other new ones were all great too of course.

even the song that propelled him to stardom, that short guitar interlude in Dm in the song "your body is a wonderland" might be short be it is straight to the point and very eloquent...more so than most of the solos you hear out there. say more with less notes.

+1000

For me, mayer has the soul, the feel, the technique, and the balance of a great musician.

If you noticed, (on all of his studio records), he never overplayed his solos and riffs. It's well balanced. He never sacrificed a song for a solo. On the other hand, his live performance, were much "free"  in the sense that it's very honest and you can feel what he's trying to express at that moment.

Most guitarists never play a song the same way more than once...hahahhaah try looking for "gravity", "slow dancing in a burning room" and "try" at pati na "out of my mind". There are similar riffs in the solo's but most of the stuff comes out different from the way it was recorded and from the way he played it in front of a different crowd.

I think what you listened to is the live version of Back to you from "any given thursday".

guys, have you heard of this Milano named Alex Britti? kinocompare ito kay mayer, same genre rin sila, bluesy pop, and pro rin. ok rin mga riffs, sarap mga feel, ang isa pa sa mga especial and unique sakanya is, he's using an acoustic guitar like a hell ' o electric guitar, he puts different effects habang ang acoustic guitar ang naka jack in. eto may vid ako.


magaling sya but not because I'm a mayer fan, but my vote goes to mayer.

Most guitarists never play a song the same way more than once...hahahhaah try looking for "gravity", "slow dancing in a burning room" and "try" at pati na "out of my mind". There are similar riffs in the solo's but most of the stuff comes out different from the way it was recorded and from the way he played it in front of a different crowd.

I think what you listened to is the live version of Back to you from "any given thursday".


i know dude that most guitarist does that when they play live...I dunno, I just want to learn that particular outro badly, maybe you or someone reading this thread can help me.. thanks! :-)

thanks! dun sa gift ni theow!

ung nga kasi eh, he's strat sig series comes with 10's, but as he claims that he's an SRV fan, Stevie uses 12's.. hihihi, napa isip lang.. anyway, i got a new strat from farleysbeat, naka 12's, i tried using it sa praktis namin last night.. grabe, hirap.. sakit sa fingers, but fat ang sound kahit sa single-coild strat ko.. anyway, i'll bring it to mang jun for the tune-up, sabay palit ng 10's.. hehehehe..

anyway, i like JM's music, ok lang.. but when the continuum album came out, and the john mayer trio, collabs with clapton etc., dun ako napa second look kay JM. i'm a big Blues fan and player (trying hard to be.. hehehe), and all i can say is, he came out of his shell gracefully into the blues..

rakenroll!!

My daughter left her mp3 player plugged to my car stereo for a couple of days so I've been listening to a lot of JM.  I've gotten to appreciate him more because I heard more of his songs, or heard his songs with a fresh ear.  I've always said he's a great songwriter and a great guitar player.  I now realize that to be true even more so now, he's prolly right up there with the best. Being so young, he's almost like a prodigy. But I still think he's too pa-cute and affected some times.  Arrogant din.  But which superstar didn't have some weird quirk?  As they say, social dysfunction is the price one pays for being a genius.

i normally just use the number 4 switch neck+mid then put a mild drive on it. Gamit ko pa nito lace sensors lang so medyo iba talaga yung sound compared to low output pups but it gets really close naman. Or kahit strat lang then I guess a tube amp with proper breaking of the sound into crunch would also do it kung rekta ang usapan.

suggestions would be ...use your neck pickup, kung tipong texas specials mas ok. kasi doon based ang nasa signature strat ni JM...his strat on the "any given thursday" dvd is actually a SRV strat, with a different pickguard.

get 10s, i read at guitar player that's what he uses. d'addarios xl 10s. that was 2-3 yrs ago..he could be using something different now.

for amps... two rock ang gamit nya, JM signature ang gamit which is not manufactured any more...i could be wrong. but two rocks are boutique amps sort of based on dumble amps.

JM actually was trying to approach alexander dumble to have an amp made...mr dumble simply didn't care much for celebrities like JM...you can imagine this would affect mr mayer.

so nag two rock na lang sya. this from a close friend of alexander dumble.

dahil di natin afford mag dumble or two rock amps....closes thing you could go would be a zendrive or a clone...zendrive by hermida audio is very close to being dumbly....think robben ford, carlton ish.

but for JM's tone, kunin mo yung mid scoop nya na tunog....adjust the highs and lows to your liking, but keep the mids low...this is compensated by JM's big dipper pups.....which are based on texas specials but with dip in the mids.

i find that i can get pretty close with a ts808, cascading with a ts9dx...all stock. get the round sound by being delicate with the pick, also try using your fingers

I think my favorite Mayer song is "The Heart of Life" -- maybe because it's acoustic and sounds rootsy.  I just learned to play/sing it today. Yehey!
sir delta:

Oooh! That's one of my favorites too! The first time i heard the song, kinapa ko na agad after.
It's kinda confusing yung strum pattern niya sa umpisa . Pero when you get it, same nalang lahat.:)

guys if you have time. comment naman sa tone nung guitar.:) i need your views. I just shifted last afternoon from gauge 11 to 12. Grabe! Ang kapal ang hirap ibend. I hope kayanin ko in the long run. Pero baka balik akong 10's sa susunod. Nalilimit yung nagagawa ko eh. Hehehe. For finger strenght development lang.

nice volume swells... sounds a bit SRV... bro, paano mo nabalance yung spring and string tension? nagdagdag ka ba ng spring?

I have no idea how SRV and JM manage to get their guitars to have gauge 13 strings...siguro special ung necks ng guitars nila. i brought my guitar to jun castro and he could only make it to 11's kahet 5 spring na...hahahha

I'm a fan of his playing but not into his singing.

I remember when our bassist introduced me to John Mayer's music.
I was like ok, fine.. then he showed me how to play his songs...
It was then that I realized... this man is no ordinary guitarist. Damn, those chords & are so uncommon yet cool, fresh sounding. I started listening to his records since then.

I like guitarists who think out of the box, beyond ordinary... & John Mayer is one of them.

no problem bro.

it's interesting how everybody is connected to one another.

john mayer's major guitar influence is stevie ray vaughan.

stevie ray's co songwriter is doyle bramhall---tatay ni doyle bramhall II.

john mayer uses the same drummer as doyle II.

la lang. :-D

btw, i already shared it once on a different thread. but i managed to 'touch' john mayer's guitar. the one that he used on the 1st crossroads dvd.

i used to work at this music store in redondo beach. one of the guys who alwanys hangout there on the weekends is chris fleming.

chris just happens to be a master builder at the fender custom shop. being a fender strat owner myself and madalas ko naka-jam si chris, syempre usap kami sa mga idol ko.

minention nya na he made some guitars for john mayer--he was the one designed the prototype guitar that eventually became the JM sig strat.

and one time nadala nya ung ginamit ni JM sa crossroads I. syempre nahawakan ko. hawak lang at hindi natugtog kasi body lang ng sunburst strat ang dala nya. sabi nya bigay daw sa kanya ni JM....la lang token ng pagkakaibigan nila.

Title: Re: THE GRAVITY CLUB - Followers of John Mayer
Post by: blues2death on July 03, 2008, 07:23:54 AM
hey bro.

i don't know if it's available sa pinas. nandito kasi ako sa california e.

it is basically taken from the same show, same night. december 8, 2007. at the nokia theatre in LA.

i distinctly remember riding in somebody's car on the freeway right by the nokia theater and seeing the lighted signs for the JM show last year. i remember feeling sorry that i won't be able to watch it--and wishing that he would come out with a  new dvd-concert.

wish granted.

It is a whole new level, different from the "any given thrusday" dvd.

it features one show, with the three different personas of john mayer.

acoustic, blues trio then the full band.

musicianship was superb. people may think he is puro pa-cute lang, pero sa tingin ko inggit lang kayo. he plays better blues than the rest of us, writes better songs....not just the three chord variety, though there's nothing with three chords and the truth.

and here on the dvd he proves that he can pull it off live. with a whole lot of extras.

jennifer anniston is wetting her panties right now while watching the acoustic set on dvd. :-D

his blues trio set on the dvd is superb!

it's like the TRY! cd except more recent and finally put on dvd!

his version of hendrix's "bold as love" here, is the best! i love this song! hendrix wasn't able to play it in front of an audience--as far as i know, but i could be wrong.

in the video, john mayer said something about his hands/fingers hurting after the blues trio set and how hard it would have been for him to top his trio performance with the full band set.

hey blues2death, did you just join fil-amusic.com? I'm hwy1bry there.

I watched part of the DVD. Its amazing. I have conflicted feelings about JM performing 'free falling' though. Maybe its just me.

yes man. i did. d masyado ma-action dun e.

about freefalling. i think he did that song merely because the show was in LA..... tom petty's heartbreakers is the epitome of the american west coast sound in rock n roll....

i can understand why you don't like JM's version that much... but i think his take is a lot more laidback though not true to the original version coz he didn't belt out the high notes on the chorus.

I like what he said "Let me first say, how wonderful it feels to know that its 2007 and we just launched into a slow blues and 7000 people in LA went nuts....All is not lost....."

hahaha. yeah!!!!

I just wished he rendered his song Covered in Rain.

Nah, man.  I don't think you got it.  It's a triple gatefold sleeve package housing everything 2 CDs and 1 DVD in three pockets.  It's also got the red color all-over instead of the blue/grey color scheme.

Only the CD is available here in Manila as of the moment. Sony BMG says they intend to release the DVD "soon."

Got the CD na and expectedly, I think it's awesome. I love the progression from acoustic to trio to the full band set. What keeps this release from being perfect though is JM's sometimes unsteady shift to falsetto in some of the songs. 'Course we all know his limitations as far as his vocals is concerned, so this is practically a negligible criticism. His guitar playing more than makes up for it; it's practically flawless.

Standout tracks: the unreleased "In Your Atmosphere" (if i remember right he came out with this song right after he broke up with Jennifer Love Hewitt), his cover of Tom Petty's "free fallin'", almost all the tracks in the JM trio set, "slow dancing in a burning room," "gravity," "belief" and "i'm gonna find another you." still feels "bitin" though, even after i've played the whole thing. now i can't wait to get the DVD...

Just got myself the 2-CD Package this afternoon. Mura lang pala, 395 lang bili ko sa Astrovision. :-D Me thinks mura siya dahil sa packaging.. I like it though.

There's nothing to NOT like in this. As usual, John Mayer does a lot of improv on his songs live.. and more often than not, intense ang kinakalabasan. I love this.. halos lahat yata favorite ko dito. It makes me want to fast forward time to sembreak so that I can get my hands on my strat again. I suggest you guys get an original copy. :wink:

I just watched the DVD with my drummer and a bunch of friends last Saturday. I have to say, I really don't like his rendition of "Free Fallin".

He gets cocky in some of the things he says. Well probably 'cocky' is a poor choice of word, but nonetheless....

For me, the most kickass part is "Out of my mind", except the line where he sings - tell all your friends....tell all your friends what Johnny did...don't lie about it either. I think people got where he was going with it, then saying 'don't lie about it either', the joke bombed.

Anyway, its a great concert dvd.

a good part of how he sounds deserves to be attributed to the unsung heroes playing "behind" him- his backing bands- be it the two-thirds of the trio or his touring band. nonetheless, JM is one to listen seriously to. Amazing how he has been getting better and better everytime.
But really, I think he should ditch his cocky attitude. It becomes too anticlimactic to his performances at times.
Title: Re: THE GRAVITY CLUB - Followers of John Mayer
Post by: blues2death on July 27, 2008, 01:18:14 PM
i think what you guys might think is his being more 'cocky' is just him joking and poking fun at himself.

on the dvd, after neon he goes:

"it's a real honor opening for myself this evening."

"I ran into myself backstage, I was very kind. i mean I'm huge..the headliner. And I was very nice to myself I gave myself a few minutes of conversation. I didn't think it was smalltalk"

He was very nice. Like I said that guy coming out later, he's very nice.


explanation...this John mayer concert featured him in all his 'incarnations'

john mayer acoustic(solo)

john mayer trio(blues)

john mayer full band (pop)

he was very much in context of his humor. in fact i thought he was very humble,   later during the concert he went on saying that he was still very grateful for the audience having accepted everything that came out with wether it was just acoustic, trio or fullband.

mga ser pwede po sumali? naligaw lang po ako konti dito sa guitar central. drummer ako. sa pinoydrums po ako lagi.

isang malaking inspirasyon din sa drumming style ko ngayon ang music ni John Mayer. lalo na sa album niya with The John Mayer Trio. that album introduced me to alot of funky/bluesy stuff. Steve Jordan is an awesome drummer and producer.

ok din yung sense of humor ni JM. nasasakyan ko. hehehe. sana wag siya tumigil sa pag-gawa ng mga kanta. panalo lagi eh.

sana rin kunin niya ulit si Steve Jordan pag-record ng new album niya (every album na sana 'to).

anyway, thanks mga sirs/mams.

Just picked up Where the Light Is CD.  Lupit ng Gravity.  It's easily my favorite versions now.  His Trio stuff here is also great especially Who do you think and Out of my mind.  Seems to be better recorded or more "HiFi" sounding than TRY.  Yung Bold as love lang parang I was expecting more.  The CD's like a snapshot of all his work from the poppy stuff to the Trio.  Shows all his versatility in one album set.  JM rocks!  Now gotta find the DVD!

here's the latest blog of Johnny:


testimonial     07/31 by JM


Read this morning at Los Angeles City Hall...


---------------------------------------------

I am one of the most media-friendly celebrities around, and my being here this morning is not in contrast with that; rather, it's in keeping with it. There is no doubt that the new frontier of entertainment is taking place informally on the street. Sound bites that used to be given on red carpets and in arranged interviews now take place beside a restaurant's valet stand, and there's no changing that. I don't want to beg the city of Los Angeles to give me 1987 back. I love being a famous musician in 2008. I embrace technology, but I also believe in thoughtfully adapting it to fit within a societal framework. And in the specific areas of both tracking and close-quarter engagement by the paparazzi, there are changes that must be made.

I'd like to define the scope of my argument by first defining what lies outside of it. I'm not here this morning to talk to you about the media at large, blogs, tabloid magazines, or entertainment news shows. I'm not even here to talk to you about photography itself. You don't have to ultimately be photographed to have been dangerously pursued in the attempt of getting a shot. The danger exists in methods and tactics having absolutely nothing to do with picture taking. In fact, removing the camera from the equation is a very effective way of looking at this situation candidly.

A scenario:

It's two o'clock in the morning and you're driving home from a friend's house. You notice there is a vehicle behind you that has no license plate and that has been following you for the last 15 minutes. The driver is so brazen that he or she has even taken to ignoring red lights just to stay behind you. As you begin to turn onto a small neighborhood street just blocks from where you live, you now realize this person has definite intentions of engaging you at your house.

The question I ask you is: Are you in danger?

The answer is YES. Not "depends if you're on TV."

It doesn't matter what you do for a living, and it doesn't matter that there might turn out to be a digital camera on the passenger seat. You are IN danger. Danger is defined as the possibility of suffering harm or injury.ᅠ And without knowing who is following you, you do not know why you are being followed, which brings about a very real possibility for suffering harm or injury.

So what about that camera on the passenger seat? Recently, it's come to serve as all but an official license to encroach on someone's right to protect themselves from threats of danger, along with every traffic law ever devised. It's also the most socially acceptable way to come within inches from someone who you do not know and who does not know you.ᅠ Sadly, if I were someone who wanted to do harm to a celebrity - of which there are many - my best bet in succeeding today would be to hold a camera.

Here's a true story.

Last month at Los Angeles International Airport, forty men, holding no tickets to fly and with nobody to pick up, swarmed an arriving female passenger inside the terminal, shouting at her, disorienting her and denying her a safe exit. Does that sound like something that should be allowed? Should the fact that the forty men were holding cameras change that answer?

Sadly, the very real and present risk associated with being pursued as a celebrity pales in comparison to the daily, imminent danger to the public at large.ᅠ If you've ever raised an eyebrow at an especially bullish driver declaring him or herself the third in a line of cars making a left turn on a light that had just turned red, I ask you to imagine what your reaction would be to watching eight cars do it.ᅠ And it happens not just daily, but turn-for-turn. I don't need to look in my rear view mirror to know it's happening behind me. All I have to do is listen; listen to the dissonant array of car horns as unsuspecting drivers are taken by surprise while a pack of reckless paparazzi muscle through an aging red light.

The person being followed knows there is wanton carelessness behind them. The pedestrian crossing the street, or the car expecting to have the right of way does not. A severe accident occurring from this kind of vehicular pursuit is not a theoretical possibility, but a situational certainty.

What does any of this have to do with photography? Or with celebrity?

The answer is simply, nothing.

This is about safety. Defined as "being protected from danger, risk, or injury."

I don't sit before you today to ask that you ban the paparazzi. I'm asking you to regulate it. Officialize it. Tax it. Legitimize it. A big white P on a yellow license plate says the driver works for an accredited photo agency. Press credentials worn in plain sight do the same. A law governing an acceptable filming distance from an unwilling subject keeps everybody safe and misbehavior becomes accountable. Regulating the paparazzi won't bring an end to modern day media coverage, just as the newly enforced hands-free law hasn't stopped people from talking on cell phones while they drive.ᅠ It's only an adaptive measure put in place to respond to some of the ways that living in a technological free-market can compromise personal safety.

actually it would sound more like a JM fan club, not the album. Where the light is, is just a tag line. A blurb of sorts. If you guys decide on the design, can you pm me the design so I can have it printed on a shirt? I live very far.

testimonial     07/31 by JM


Read this morning at Los Angeles City Hall...


---------------------------------------------

I am one of the most media-friendly celebrities around, and my being here this morning is not in contrast with that; rather, it's in keeping with it. There is no doubt that the new frontier of entertainment is taking place informally on the street. Sound bites that used to be given on red carpets and in arranged interviews now take place beside a restaurant's valet stand, and there's no changing that. I don't want to beg the city of Los Angeles to give me 1987 back. I love being a famous musician in 2008. I embrace technology, but I also believe in thoughtfully adapting it to fit within a societal framework. And in the specific areas of both tracking and close-quarter engagement by the paparazzi, there are changes that must be made.

I'd like to define the scope of my argument by first defining what lies outside of it. I'm not here this morning to talk to you about the media at large, blogs, tabloid magazines, or entertainment news shows. I'm not even here to talk to you about photography itself. You don't have to ultimately be photographed to have been dangerously pursued in the attempt of getting a shot. The danger exists in methods and tactics having absolutely nothing to do with picture taking. In fact, removing the camera from the equation is a very effective way of looking at this situation candidly.

A scenario:

It's two o'clock in the morning and you're driving home from a friend's house. You notice there is a vehicle behind you that has no license plate and that has been following you for the last 15 minutes. The driver is so brazen that he or she has even taken to ignoring red lights just to stay behind you. As you begin to turn onto a small neighborhood street just blocks from where you live, you now realize this person has definite intentions of engaging you at your house.

The question I ask you is: Are you in danger?

The answer is YES. Not "depends if you're on TV."

It doesn't matter what you do for a living, and it doesn't matter that there might turn out to be a digital camera on the passenger seat. You are IN danger. Danger is defined as the possibility of suffering harm or injury.ᅠ And without knowing who is following you, you do not know why you are being followed, which brings about a very real possibility for suffering harm or injury.

So what about that camera on the passenger seat? Recently, it's come to serve as all but an official license to encroach on someone's right to protect themselves from threats of danger, along with every traffic law ever devised. It's also the most socially acceptable way to come within inches from someone who you do not know and who does not know you.ᅠ Sadly, if I were someone who wanted to do harm to a celebrity - of which there are many - my best bet in succeeding today would be to hold a camera.

Here's a true story.

Last month at Los Angeles International Airport, forty men, holding no tickets to fly and with nobody to pick up, swarmed an arriving female passenger inside the terminal, shouting at her, disorienting her and denying her a safe exit. Does that sound like something that should be allowed? Should the fact that the forty men were holding cameras change that answer?

Sadly, the very real and present risk associated with being pursued as a celebrity pales in comparison to the daily, imminent danger to the public at large.ᅠ If you've ever raised an eyebrow at an especially bullish driver declaring him or herself the third in a line of cars making a left turn on a light that had just turned red, I ask you to imagine what your reaction would be to watching eight cars do it.ᅠ And it happens not just daily, but turn-for-turn. I don't need to look in my rear view mirror to know it's happening behind me. All I have to do is listen; listen to the dissonant array of car horns as unsuspecting drivers are taken by surprise while a pack of reckless paparazzi muscle through an aging red light.
