Lesson notes

Love Someone is the first track and the first official single of Jason Mraz’ new fifth album called ‘Yes’.

It features a very easy progression, using the I, IV, V and VI in the key of D, in Dropped D-tuning.

In the lesson we mostly take a close look at the strumming hand, since Jason Mraz uses a few different techniques. It involves a very catchy and cool fingerpicking percussive sounding intro, which is the main pattern throughout the song.

It also includes a couple of subtle hammer-ons and dampening the strings. Other than that, fingerpicking combined with strumming or occasionally strumming is in there too. The student needs to be able to switch back and forth between one and the other.
