    Naw but really, is that what you think or are you just screwing with me? Either way, you could very well be right with that guess. I suppose him being an 'F' isn't too far fetched.

    I think he's very very F. I'd say probably NF but there's a strong sensory streak there, too. If he's an S, he's gotta be an SP IMO. IXFP is my best guess, leaning towards the N if only because there's an unmistakable NF vibe to his music.

    No actually I was just screwing with you.

    To tell you the truth, I don't think he's J, I said that because you said he had to atleast have two letters in common with you and I'm no dream crusher.

    I do believe him to be an F though. IxFx

I have a pretty wide definition of pop, though... like I consider Coltrane, or even Tom Waits to have pop sensibilities on many songs on the Rain Dogs album, and I wouldn't say the Pussycat Dolls have any pop sensibility to their songs at all, but I digress. I guess pop sensilities to me means songwriting, not just technical musicianship. The pop aspect of songs only makes them better, and pop sensibilities only makes a musician better. Thats why I think Hendrix is probably the best guitarist or even just the best musician I've ever heard; he wasn't just amazing at playing guitar, but he could focus his talent into elegantly simple, but still deep, innovative, and visionary pop songs. John Mayer runs in this vein, too, and for that he is better than most guys out there today.
    Fully agreed.

    A lot of musicians (and just avid music listeners in general) thrive to hear people pushing the limits in their talent and expertise but, to the common man/woman listening to an album or the radio, they can only appreciate the technicalities to such an extent. If you're a great artist and can implement pop sensibilities into your music, you'll cater to a much wider audience and they will be able to appreciate the music even more. People are impressed with drum solos, crazy guitar sweeps, etc. but when it's all said and done, John Doe just needs a freakin melody and a beat that's simple enough that he can step and bob his head to. Something identifiable. I see it as a necessary musical balance when dealing with the general public. Growing up with my dad in a music studio has really helped shape my opinion on the matter. Listening to music producers advise the direction of songs using their pop sensibilities and doing totally cool things with it; It's a lot of fun.

    Blink 182 and Killswitch Engage are bands in their genre that I think did an excellent job with this. Punk rockers have disdain for Blink 182 (although it seems a few of them can appreciate the band because they simply kick ass). True metal heads have disdain for Killswitch Engage. Both bands are rich and selling millions of albums... Killswitch Engage's guitarist is a graduate of Berklee college of Music in Boston. I believe the most reputable school for music in the country. He studied production, engineering and bass guitar. He does all the engineering and production for the band's albums on his own. Killswitch's dummer graduated Hartt School of Music in Connecticut and has a master's degree in percussion. When he isn't on tour with KSE he plays for symphonies in CT. Obviously the guys are well studied but it's their sensitivity to what appeals to the masses that has driven them to success. To me, that's an art.

    But hey, I know a lot of people will disagree with me. I'm that guy that likes really tight sounding, over produced recordings. :P

    More silence, less honesty.

    Thank you.

    I just found out John Mayer dated Jessica Simpson for 9 months... Cool points lost, but still retains God status.

    Also, were you guys aware that Mayer is featured on Fall Out Boy's cover of Michael Jackson's song "Beat It." Kind of a shame. lol

    So, has anyone checked this DVD out yet, courtesy of my recommendation? I've watched it several times.

    I got the DVD and watched it a few times. My favourite set is definitely the Trio set. The highlights for me are Neon, Stop This Train, The entire Trio set, Waiting on the World to Change, and... don't even remember off the top of my head. Awesome DVD.

    Glad you got it, G-zer. The Trio set is my favorite too. "Good Love Is On The Way" is probably one of my fave tracks.

    Edit:
    Just realized I left the DVD at my parent's house. Dang.

    Awesome set. He really is great live. Say what you want about him in general, but he can play guitar like a champ. Talented mofo...

    His lyrics: INFP.
    His ability to practice a craft like guitar, all day/everyday, to be THAT good: ISFP

    After seeing him respond to a reporter in Japanese, I settled on INFP.
