CADGBE: Major Sixth

The guitar from the cover of Room for Squares is a Novax Expression Solidbody 6 guitar with fanned frets \(for multiscale purposes along different strings\) and is the guitar which Mayer plays on Neon. Neon is the only song from the album that Mayer used this guitar for and he has the guitar tuned uniquely with the low E string dropped to C \(i.e. CADGBe or standard tuning with a low C\). The style employed by Mayer for the piece is noted for the strumming hand only using the thumb and index finger. Whilst performing the song live Mayer is known to play a lengthy introduction before beginning the song.

*Chordmaps are an amalgamation of chords and scales. Each chord map can yield sometimes 5 chord shapes in its given key. Chords are made up of 2+ notes in the respective scale. EADGBE has evolved to provide a good compromise between simple fingering for many chords and the ability to play common scales with minimal left hand movement giving highly responsive chords and well renowned chord shapes. Alternate tunings have wider fret spans making normal chords difficult to reach. That’s not to say chords map don’t have good chords. With a little effort some original and strikingly beautiful chords can be found in Chord Maps.
