Having no possessions, though immeasurable wealth

  1. -4 is the easiest

  2. akatsadventure

    +3 is easier chords and better for higher voices!

  3. Glitterlele

    For me, -4 has the easiest chords. C, G, Am, and F.

  4. This is really a great tune to practice your barre chords and transitions between them. And unless you have to transpose it to fit your vocal range, I’d recommend trying to play this in its original key, barre chords and all. How else are you going to get any better? :-) The Bb, Dbm, and E chords can all be barred with the Dbm in the third inversion (barre the 4th fret and put ring finger on G string, 6th fret). Barring all 3 of these chords makes it super easy to transition between them. It also sounds better (IMV) and makes it easier to play with better strumming patterns.

    Speaking of which…For the reggae-type feel Jason Mraz likes to use in so many of his songs, including this one, I like to pick the G string then D-U-chunk-U. This pattern gives that syncopated reggae rhythm (oom-papa-oom-pa) You can use this pattern throughout the song with minor modifications in the Bridge and maybe a few other places.

  5. Wishing For Happiness

    For the transposer I found that +1 had the easiest chords for me to play. And it didn’t sound all that different.

  6. Transposing this to -4 and playing with the capo on the 2nd fret really helped me when singing with it. :D Figure I should mention it in case anyone else wants to try it out that way. (:

  7. Make it -4 and put a capo on 4th fret to make it way easier

    • Hi there,

      Can you explain what do you mean with “make it -4? thank you very much.

      • So at the top you press the -4 button and that changes the key signature 4 steps down and it makes the fingerings easier. But to have it in tune, you should put a capo on the fourth fret

  8. make it -4 or +3 for some easier chords :)
