This week's Cover and Original is one where the covering artist's style really fits well with the original. John Mayer (indie-fans groan), is a favorite of mine, someone that I've enjoyed to varying degrees pretty consistantly over the years. In recent years, he's trended towards blues-rock more and more, which is good with his music style.
Thus, I think that he fits well with a track from his live album, Try!, where he covers a Jimi Hendrix tune, Wait Until Tomorrow. Hendrix is known for his outstanding guitarwork, and Mayer's certainly influenced by that, and it rubs off well...
