"Right away, my fingers started to go to different places on the freeboard," [Jason Mraz] says of his time in Brazil, adding that Brazilian musicians are far less likely to rely on the basic "cowboy chords" that form the basis of a lot of American pop music. "I did not know a bit of Portuguese, but we really formed a musical bond. We became somewhat like spiritual brothers. We wrote a couple of songs together."Even those good vibes need some coaxing. Hits "I'm Yours" and "Lucky" may sound effortless, but Mraz figures for every catchy gem like those, there are another 100 that are rather less inspiring. "Sometimes, you don't know what you've got right away," Mraz notes. "So I never take the process for granted."no worries-he's always happy to play his hits. He admits that he's humbled when people tell him how uplifting songs like "I'm Yours" and "Lucky" are. "These are songs I'm really happy playing," he says.
