(Radio.com) It's no secret that Shawn Mendes is a huge John Mayer fan, and he proved it by channeling the musician while recording himself playing around on his guitar.

Mendes posted a black and white video on Instagram Tuesday (October 4), writing, "Trying to dig deep into guitar world with my off time, dont mind my ridiculous movements and weird faces hahaha. Love this JM type groove!!"

The song he plays has a very relaxed vibe with the kind of beachy finger work that Mayer tended to prefer in his earlier music. Mendes has expressed an interest in collaborating with Mayer on something, but unfortunately they weren't able to work together this time around.

He told Rolling Stone, "I didn't get to work with him, but he listened to a bunch of the songs and gave great pieces of advice through the music and production and lyrics and stuff, especially on songs like 'Three Empty Words' and 'Ruin' and 'Patience.' It was great to have him listening through it all." Watch the video here.
