John Mayer: Message In A Bottle

One of the more prolific performers to enter the scene in the last couple of decades is guitarist John Mayer. As I normally feature cover songs on Monday, I found this little nugget from his live show in Birmingham, AL of his cover of the Police tune “Message in a Bottle.” Mayer does a nice solo acoustic rendition of this tune.

The Police’s Original

The song was a number 1 record in the UK for The Police; however, this single from 1979’s “Regatta de Blanc” only peaked at 74. Notice the obvious tempo difference from the cover.
