what is interesting about the song is how everything is clean and clear in the mix. As you can hear in the beginning of the track, you can hear an acoustic guitar placed really close in the mix, along with John Mayer’s vocals counting down for the band, giving this live feel to the song as well. A 808 snare and kick can be heard on the left of the mix and a electric guitar is introduced on the right just before the whole band comes in with live drums. The bass fills up most of the low frequencies along with the kick, giving a strong rhythm section. During the verse you can hear the hi-hat playing at some points panned slightly to the right. A lead guitar is placed in the middle of the track that carries out the melody. The vocal line has a double effect, john mayers voice stands out near in the mix while the lead guitar does a call and response effect to his vocals. It follows a 12 bar blues pattern, and before the next bar comes in the drums does a small roll and a floor tom hit can be heard on the left. A cymbal crash as well that is place further in the mix with the use of reverb, giving a sense of depth to the song. It follows by another bar and soon after a guitar solo that is compressed. It stands out as the same level as the vocals and is placed near the listeners ears.
During the next bar again, an organ is introduced panned to the left and is also placed nearer in front of the mix. The song ends of with the drums playing a right that can be heard very softly and is placed further back in the mix again. Here the floor Toms are shifted from left and right from time to time, while the guitar does a solo again and the organ is playing a solo as well. The song ends of with the same 808 electronic kick drum, with john mayer saying “cool”, giving this live feel to the song, while the guitar cuts out slowly and abruptly after awhile. You can also hear abit of talking at the background, adding to the live feel of the song.
