JOHN MAYER

John Mayer is a brilliant singer- songwriter and he is only 31 years old! His first two
studio albums, Room for Squares and Heavier Things were released in 2003. Heavier Things made a huge hit with my piano students, especially the song called “Daughters”. It was a huge success all over giving John Mayer his first number one single with the song “Daughters” as well as a Grammy award in 2005 for song of the year.

John Mayer began his career performing mainly acoustic rock and pop, but gradually began a transition towards the blues genre around 2005. The blues influence can be heard on his album Continuum, released in September 2006.

I could go on and on about what a great guy John Mayer is, the changes in his musical direction, all of his great projects and numerous awards. But you can read his biography for yourself.

There is a song on John’s Continuum album that I enjoy playing and have taught my students. It’s called “Waiting On The World To Change”. The song was the third most downloaded song of the week on the iTunes Music Store following its release on July 11, 2006, and debuted at #25 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart.
Here’s the break down. It’s an easy chord progression:

D Bm G D

A Bm G D

There is a bridge part that goes:

Bm to em7 ( 2 times )

Listen to the song and jam along, whether your instrument is piano or guitar!

***************************************

This is pretty much the piano part for the whole song which you could play on the guitar
piano. Either way it's still a really good song

Intro: G C(#1st) C
NOTE: The C(#st) is just a C#, E, and G which is basically a C chord with C# instead of
C itself. I didn't know what else to call it.
You can play it like (x 4 2 0 2 0)

G C(#1st) C
When you're dreaming with a broken heart
