Animals As Leaders guitarist Tosin Abasi recently rolled out his new guitar brand Abasi Concepts. He's been posting a lot of really cool videos of people playing his guitars lately, the most recent of which hones in on blues guitarist and hitmaker John Mayer.
Which really shouldn't be too surprising, as Mayer is one hell of a axeman. The guy not only effortlessly handles the eight string, but does some pretty cool comping on the bass strings while playing some melodies overtop. Now all we need is a John Mayer solo on the new Animals As Leaders record.
Today did not suck! Got a chance to sit with @johnmayer and @sharkey335 at rehearsal. Incredibly genuine dudes and outlandishly musical players ( how killing is John on the 8 string?!?) Looks like the Pathos and “Space Tele” will be in the hands of @sharkey335 from now on and we’re starting an art series build for John ASAP. Totally surreal ???
