Slow Dancing In A Burning Room – John Mayer – Acoustic Guitar Lesson – Live Hotel Cafe 1/8/11
Link to the TAB used onscreen

This is an acoustic guitar tutorial based on the live performance at Hotel Cafe on 1/8/11 (thanks to violetskyye for videoing it). The video of that performance can be found here: . I transcribed the piece in Guitar Pro using video and slowed down to pitch audio to check the techniques and hand positions. This tutorial video has onscreen tab with some detailed explanation and slowed down looped parts. I hope you enjoy it. It clocks in at about 33 minutes and covers every part of this version of the song.

With regards to the onscreen tabulature I try to stick closely to it on the video but take some unconscious liberties here and there…

    I can hear a bit of man on the side from the chords played in this song. Ones about the pain from rejection the other is pain from a relationship thats slowly crashing and burning.

    Don’t listen to the other people complaining. An intermediate player should be able to understand this video.
