Maroon 5's James Valentine on the Art of Pop/Funk Guitar

Who is your favorite pop guitar player around town?
Blake Mills. He’s incredible. I would say he’s an inspiration, but what he inspires me to
do is throw all my guitars into the L.A. River. While I may never be able to play like
him, it’s always immensely fun to learn a new lick or voicing and incorporate it into my
onstage vocabulary. Whenever I can, I take a guitar lesson from
Jean-Marc Belkadi
or other guys around town—not just to learn new things, but because lessons keep
me playing guitar. I went to a Berklee summer session right after high school in 1996,
just to learn more guitar. That’s where I met John Mayer. He won the big scholarship
prize—the son of a bitch. That’s why I didn’t give him that amp [laughs].
