Lesson notes

A Beautiful Mess by Jason Mraz is the final track of his album We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things, which came along with his huge hit, IРІР‚в„ўm Yours. It features a very melodic fingerpicking intro, by using all the chords, or at least part of those, in the key of E. Quite a few colourful chords throughout the song, such as m7, add9, add11, dominant7add11, which can be played with just a simple basic Р’С• swing time strum. We also take a look at some of the nuances and subtleties of Jason MrazРІР‚в„ў playing since he tends to change the way he plays his songs all the time.
