The Lazy Song
Trent Swartzentruber teaches you how to play “The Lazy Song” by Bruno Mars. This song was Mars’ third single off of his album, DooWops and Hooligans. The Lazy Song ended up hitting number one on the charts in under a year. It sold over a million digital copies in 2011, and it is his 5th consecutive song that sold over a million copies. The first official video featured Bruno Mars and the group, Poreotics, wearing chimpanzee masks, mimicking the song as Mars performs the song in a bedroom. An alternate official video stars Leonard Nimoy and has a William Shatner cameo in it.
The song was written by Bruno Mars and members of his writing and production team, The Smeezingtons, which consist of him, Ari Levine, and Philip Lawrence. 

Trent plays an Gibson Hummingbird in the lesson.
