    I love what you're doing Justin and if I have to be perfectly honest I started to learn guitar with the goal (not my final goal just a big step) being to play a John Mayer song. I remember when I was 18 and my friend showed me the Nokia Theatre performance. I was so enthralled I made him watch the whole thing, I liked it more than he did and he showed me. I was really high at the time so I thought the next day 'maybe it wasn't THAT great' but I watched it again and it was.

    Anyway, I love this song and the lyrics really hit home for me too. I cannot wait to be able to play this. I know its potentially years off (most likely as i've just begun playing) but it inspires me so much. God damn I love John Mayer and I love you for the fact you are helping me learn guitar no matter how early in the stepping stones I am right now.

    I hope it makes it worth while to know that the free resources you provide really help people like me out. When I get some more money to my name I'll be helping you out and if I ever get a platform its you i'm shouting out.
