This video lesson teaches the intro to ‘Why Georgia,’ taken off John Mayer’s ‘Room For Squares’ album. Unfortunately, this tune is no where near as easy as he’s able to make it look.

The chord sequence in the intro essentially moves between G Major – Dadd4 and then moves to a C Major 9 chord (with some embellishments).

The percussive ‘tap’ that he achieves is best left until you’ve mastered the main section, much easier to execute if you add it later. The C Major 9 chord requires a fair bit of switching fingers so ensure that you’ve made the shape become second nature before progressing on.

It’s a brilliant tune to play on acoustic guitar and more importantly, it’s an excellent one to pull out in the guitar shop when trying out new guitars!
