Reinventing the Wheel

John Mayer may not be Stevie Ray Vaughn, but he's bringing blues to an entirely new audience.
This clip shows Mayer playing "Empty Arms" with Stevie's old band "Double Trouble". Although John lacks the intensity of Stevie's style, the guy has an amazing talent.

When I watch stuff like this I wonder why I ever pick up the guitar at all - then I remember the sheer creative joy playing an instrument can bring, happily accepting what talent I can muster.
