It took me quite a while to get into the guitar prince that is John Mayer. I only ever really knew his songs from them back teen movies back in the 00s. After hearing his album The Search For Everything though, that all changed. The instrumentation on the opening track Still Feel Like Your Man is godly.
What Are We Learning To Play?
Below is a video of what you will be able to play by the end of this post.
I love playing this riff as we are utilising lots of different ukulele techniques all in one little section. We are using chords, finger picking, hammer ons, pulls off and palm muting. All in the space of about 6 seconds.
To start with, barre the 2nd fret with your first finger and use your ring finger for the 4th fret of the C then your pinky for 4th of the A. This is going to set you up to just slide your pinky to the 5th and place your middle finger on the 3rd fret E string for the next chord.
