i feel bad for guitarists with small hands

Stuart W

I hope you have a man that makes you happy every day! You are so awesome

Wigunlubo Newmai

Curently learning still feel like your man, it's so hard??(I'm a beginner)


The fact that John Mayer plays the Cmaj9 chord with his thumb wrapped over on the A string, as opposed to his middle finger gives the song another layer of difficulty.


thank you @Maryspender for giving me hope

Alex Cognata

Hi Mary, I believe that the tricky part on the change to C is a double finger pull off on strings 3 and 4 with fingers 4 (G Note on Fret 5) and 3 (B note on fret 4) hammering off to finger 1 barring at fret 2 (Notes E and A) , you don't need to finger the 9th (D note) on the 2nd string with your 4th finger so it's smooth and doesn't require your pinky to jump from the D note on the 2nd string. What you and Paul were doing also sounded close though and I may not be perfectly right but it gets closer to John's sound I think. Also there's a "pre" single finger (3rd string A to B notes fingers 1 to 3) hammer that anticipates (the + of beat 4) the down beat where the C (5th string) falls. I should post it sometime. Also I think the G chord fingered with the 2nd finger on the 6th string G root the way you're doing it is easier than the thumb over neck grab like Paul was doing it honestly, but what ever works. I noticed on several of your songs you're very proficient with the thumb on the base notes. I do it sometimes like on the D chord with the F# in the base. I'll see if I can send it to you to check out.

Milton joaquin Marquez

You all forget a very important detail makes easier for john play that kind of chords and that is He have two big hands to deal with that comparing the average people hands, and believe it or not that a big diferense on guitar's playing

Maz Terbate

I use my ring finger for that.
U dont really need to use your pinky to sound right

Christopher Leon

This is a fantastic video because this was exactly my journey trying to learn how to play this song, and the struggles in that very same part. I still don’t feel that I’ve perfected it.

Raymond Kyruana

This is so cool to see the process I thought I was the only one who did this lol

James Peters

Well it makes me feel better to see you struggle also...


I’m 36 and I’ve been playing since I was 12 or 13, and I never picked up the habit of using my thumb to play chords. I’ve got thick meaty hands with palms that are a glove size large, with medium length fingers, so it would probably make my life easier if I did—but I still can’t bring myself to do it.

If you’ve ever wondered what kind of monster hands enjoy playing those old school necks that feel like baseball bats, those are the necks that feel best in these mitts—but I’m still so proper with the way I play my chords, that it takes a concerted effort to use my thumb when I should, because Hendrix or SRV used to do it that way.

Knowing that John Mayer is an SRV disciple it kinda seems obvious that he would throw that into his playing all over the place.

Niki Pangman

The words coming across the screen are blocking the guitar.

Capt Craig

dude, congrats but that pinky thing is feaky

Captain Gill

This encourages me. To be honest cause thanks.

Perpetually annoyed

Not at hard as neon ?

Roderick Balt

When I cover John I will follow John's playing and feel as much as I can but I don't stretch myself to learn things that are very easy for him but very difficult for me.


I think that John Mayer went to Berkley so that would have meant that he leant the guitar by learning from people like Bill Leavitt and therefore most probably built his skills though a lot of hard work with etudes/theory etc.. Trying to learn it simply from tab would seem to me to be very hard indeed. You need to do the legwork first.


Thank you for sharing this! I feel much less alone in my struggles!

Default Channel

Wny would this video be demonitized?

Jeff Merritt

Love this. My sister is learning guitar. Cant think of a better place to share with her.

Stephen Colpitts

Seems like there can be no great redemption that isn’t born from great frustration. Great job

Danny Smith

Hey Mary,
When it goes to the C why don’t you try a hammer on and pull off on the G and D string and then play the G string open instead of stretching, that way once that part is played your in ideal position for the G chord.... try it.... it’s a winner ?
(Sorry I’m late to the party ?)
Cheers Danny x


I am convinced this is female me from a pararell universe... that is exactly me. Have been trying to play this song for 2 years now and thats how I play the interlude riff too lol.

Iqbal Helsen

You should sing more. Your guitar is so damn good already.


Wonderful that you were able to get Paul Davids to help you with a guitar part. I love his channel.

nick mcconnochie

Doesn’t matter about song choice your voice is amazing. Great picking.

Psionic Audio

Mary, I'm late to the party, but first, kudos for posting your struggles. Second, Paul and John are both like 6'4 with giant hands. Have you tried capoing up 3-4 frets, at least while you work out the mechanics before adding the stretching needed at the lower frets?

Greenfly 12

Ahhh. Mary that was ace x

Matthew Jones

Yeah John Mayer is an awesome guitarist and song writer with some tricky cord structures . But I’m sure Mary will get there in the end and nail this song.

Joshua Boerger

try neon

Alaskan Outlaw

OMG I just had to stop the video to LOL about that "chewsday" shirt hah! Thanks for having such a good humor. I was literally reading it when you said it and scared my cats when I burst into laughing as I made the connection :D

Julia Colucci

So thankful for this video because I have been struggling with Why Georgia for soooo long and now I at least know WHAT I have to do lol I'm now practicing to know HOW to do it

Cam Sutton

That's a lovely sounding guitar.

Carla Cowling

I feel like an exact copy of the delivery of his song is less effective than a heartfelt interpretation of your own. No?

Colin Benjamin

John Mayer's biggest playing secret: He is a massive human, and his hand can stretch down the entire neck.

Stomp City

As a guitarist...b3cause of you! As a guitarist and artist, I can so relate to your real, genuine story and conniptions, so wonderfully and graciously shared by you. Thank you and continued success fellow guitarist/ artist.


Almost got it!

Kevin Mbuyamba

Been playing for 4 months and I'm trying to learn Stairway to heaven but it sounds like hell!
This motivated me to keep at it though. Hope you've made more progress :)

tanner pape

Great job, Mary. :)

Jim Ajello

What I Love is your honesty. You give great insight to developing the ability to achieve an interpretation of an arrangement. I think all musicians struggle at times to play someone's version & then reinterpret to our own style. Thank for sharing this process. It sounded great as you arrived at a version that worked for you.?

Gary Crouse

you give me hope !!!!!!


I REALLY enjoyed watching you try to play this song. You really demonstrate the struggle and the accomplishment perfectly well. Made me smile. You're awesome Mary


It sounds easy and relaxed but it's impossible to play it..

Doc Tiberius

Just looking back , it's frustrating and interestingly funny but not all at the same time.

It's good to have a rest from songs that seem impossible chords and timing s

Gary Stockton

That's awesome Mary. I obsessed over a song by Fionn Regan called "Abacus" in the same way until I mastered it. Some songs just get under your skin like that.

William Lewis

practice makes perfect. learn instead please Chega de Saudade by Antonio Carlos Jobim you'll be happier and me too cheers

Fantastic Progress @Mary it is a really hard Song to learn!! #AussieFAN


Love Pauls channel. Such a great bloke. Glad you got there in the end. I'm trying to learn some Strokes songs at the mo. They sounded pretty simple but not quite so easy when you try them.

Niáll J. Padden

Lov'n the journey with you. These are all "W's" - When we learn from our own mistakes... or someone else's,then it's not a Loss for either? Don't quit.

Rashid Ali

God your so posh

Karl Torento

7:30 for her attempt at the song after practicing


You did choose one of the best help, Paul Davids.
Furhermore... did you played Neon?


It's not even hard lmao

Miles Burton

Huh. I didn't expect this to be so encouraging to hear what challenges professionals. I always thought I was just too lazy to ever be on top of so many great pieces. Ok, maybe I am but I'm in good company with the challange! Thanks Mary!

Matt Haggard

That’s what she said.?

Brandon Ferguson

Stop this train. The slap finger flick thing driving me nuts

akash chauhan

I'm don't want to brag about this but I used to play the song when I was 13 lol although it took me a month to master it fully... ahhh now I don't play guitar that often ?

Craig Browning

John Mayer "Why Georgia" live Fair view of left hand on guitar party obscured by Mike Stand he's obviously using thumb on low strings.

This would gives me Trigger Thumb, so I would substitute something else (let the Bass Player cover the Low notes).


Adrian Shegstad

Is it possible that this could work in a different tuning?

Marty Mcfly

No Mary. Why Georgia is not Hard. Neon is hard for play.

Almat Sailaukhan

big love... musta spent half a year on it and now i can play it... at 60% speed. baby steps, i guess

James Braden

Meanwhile I’m eyeing the sea foam prs in the rack.

Thomas Hamm

The secret to playing this song properly? Is driving around on 85 all afternoon. That's why I can't play it, I spend my time on 485 instead

Maz Terbate

Watch someone play it first.

Stomp City

As a guitarist...b3cause of you! As a guitarist and artist, I can so relate to your real, genuine story and conniptions, so wonderfully and graciously shared by you. Thank you and continued success fellow guitarist/ artist.

Brian Tyhy

Thanks for posting. I have played finger style guitar for 40 years and could never master playing guitar by anchoring my baby finger to the body of the guitar. Free the movement of your right hand by not anchoring your baby finger. Love your english accent. cheers from the yukon


What I would give to own that Martin in your hands...

Marc-André Yelle

Good job on that, this is amazing. Playing with difficult song is ONE thing, playing like that WHILE singing is even HARDER. This is why I limit myself with chords most of the time :( , I'm not patient enough to practice all that maybe one day ;)

John Shaw

Sorry but it's sooo refreshing to see that someone as accomplished as you struggle with a song just like us mere mortals do. Thanks for sharing.

Marc Rod

You have an excellent teacher!


“He’s ergonomic with his playing” not with for those of us with normal thumbs

Perpetually annoyed

Nothing john does is easy?

Jordan Cohen

Thanks for sharing this bit of humility. I'm a total amateur compared to you, but at least we make the same frustrated face while learning a new song :)

Jeffrey Perez

thanks for the video, make me feel mortal when practicing. nice to not just see the final product. Cheers

Colin Benjamin

1:35 - painfully accurate ???


Your voice (talking and singing) is amazing. So nice not to hear FRY TONES! Love the videos. That Martin though...is that an OM-28? Modern Deluxe possibly? Great choice. :D I've been eyeballing a 000-28E Modern Deluxe. Good luck with that song! Looks super challenging.

Nice to see you pretty much get it at the end. Cute seeing how excited you were!

Joe Debono

A hairband with some kitty ears and a meow and a swipe at the end of this song will help me with my frustration definitely help me play harder cheers Joe from Australia keep up the good work

PrmFirestorm 086

My challenge is Tommy Emmanuels version of Freight Train. It is so different than anything that I have played before that it makes me feel the same way. The right hand is killing me.

Antony King

Just create your on version of the song... When you work to learn a song that is difficult, it is a tribute to the artist when you create a version so that you can keep the song alive,,,


7:20 Paul says "Ooh, yeah, 'mooi' "- and the Dutch word "mooi" means pretty or beautiful.

Greg Cusumano

As a newer guitar player, I want to thank you for making this video.

Owen Foster

Aww I was looking forward to hearing you sing the falsetto! Also v jealous of that gorgeous martin.

brandon yip

Great job! Thanks for your vulnerability here. You could capo it up a bit which serve two helpful functions. One, make the stretch to the C with your pinky easier. Two, put it in a better range for your voice. Although your low range is really nice too. Cheers!

Lucien Robidoux

Well, the wise thing to do was asking Paul D. He is the John Mayer expert. Love Paul...thanks for sharing, great video.

shane bond

Before I start to practice this song ,, imma gonna quit... Hahaha

Michael Raymond

You are wonderful. Paul is wonderful. It made me very happy to see two people I admire so much working together. Rest assured that your humility in the face of obstacles is helping many other musicians keep going and plenty of people are developing their sound by failing to imitate you. Thanks for sharing this and all of your other content.

Gregory Price

I'm very much a beginner guitarist (less than 1 year into learning to play) and my teacher has been wanting me to take a crack at Why Georgia. After barely learning that opening lick (the "easy part" as you put it) about a month ago, the rest just felt so daunting and I just put it down and never came back. The whole section about frustration, and wanting to sit down and trying to do something but there's that one part... man that hit home.

Your video and shared frustration (as a much more experienced guitarist) made me sit down with some optimism, knowing that maybe I wouldn't get there right now - but that whatever I get out of it is worth the effort. I started working through it bit by bit and start working out my pinky and hammer ons. I still don't quite feel the beat yet, and the transition between chords is basically non-existent at the moment, but I have to tell you that really helped me here by giving me some motivation. Had a bit of a moment here tonight, so thank you for that. Hope you are well.

Murray Schultz

I wish I could play 10% as good as u with one hand tied behind your back.

Chris D

Anything from iron maiden


I was very happy to see that you nailed it in the end. Congrats on your win ! It is a good feeling when you finally get right, even for somebody watching, (I felt like I was cheering you on). This song may have to wait a little longer before I add it to my wish list.

Tjapko Smits

Who? Robert Johnson? Just Kidding JM is my biggest hero and indeed it took me some time to play his songs where his right hand technique was somewhat challenging. The secret is in the index finger downstroke hit and not so much the finger picking. I learned this trick watching zartimus's tutorial years back. It might be handy to get a thumb extraction if you are short thumbed. JOhn has a couple of songs using this technique. And Mary - I can even watch this video without sound.

Stomp City

Brilliant... it gives me hope, I trouble with Thirteen by Big Star ⭐️ but I’ve got it worried now!


I mean, when you play piano, not guitar, the conversation about strings and pinkies makes no sense. At all. It seems to become detached completely from the music and to only focus on the fingering (yes, I know, that is a theme for pianists too).
Somebody said that you cannot sing Van Beethoven's music (as if it is not musically melodic) and my answer was, indeed >you< cannot, because >we< need a choir for the different melodic and thematic lines that he weaves into the fabric of his music.
So, instead of kinesthetically trying to copy Mayer's piece, is there a way that somebody with a degree in music might better apply? Like trying to first mentally agree on the melodic and thematic notes, different lines in that, then add embellishments and finally rhythmic support notes?
Rule #1 in Western scientific methodology: problem decomposition (split a big difficult problem into smaller ones that you can solve)

Jeff Merritt

Hey gorgeous love you for tryin. I went down the same road. I got the licks but to sing it and play is not possible as that boy is of another universe. .. ... he a special boy. Let him be a Modern Day Mozart...trade mark my shit fuck off


I love the learning process and watching how others learn so I can learn as well !

Richard Turbine

I confess that I had never heard of John Mayer, purely my ignorance, but have now checked him out and his rhythm playing is certainly impressive. Women seem to like him too. 

Although Mary's hands are not large, she has a relatively long pinkie, much longer than mine in relative terms, and fairly good sidewise stretch. Many of us start playing the guitar with no sideways pinkie movement at all, and rather little ring finger, simply because it is not needed in most other activities, it needs to be developed, supposing that you are not one of the lucky few that can do it naturally. You can hurt yourself thumbing over the neck - it is very easy to stretch the ligaments around the top joint of the thumb and, if you do (I did once), it can take a year to recover. There is close to nothing that cannot be played without it.

Amy Skinner

I’ve been playing this song incorrectly for about 15 years. You inspired me to learn it properly. Thank you!

TIP for people with tiny hands like mine: use a capo to nail the riff further up the fret board (I put it on capo 4). Once you nail it there, move the capo lower and lower til you can play it without one ??
