John Mayer – ‘Who Did You Think I Was’

This great song by the John Mayer Trio features the one and only Pino Palladino on bass. Pino shines in this minimalist band setting (with guitarist/singer Mayer and drummer Steve Jordan), supporting the song with a supple, bluesy line that he played on a Fender Precision bass. Pino makes extensive use of the major and minor pentatonic scales here: as a result, his line is a showcase for just how much can be achieved with these simple scales.
