                                Jason Mraz - Best Friend
                            http://youtu.be/iremWHriFDo?t=26s
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

~ The actual song is in DGDGBE (G6) tuning and it's finger-picked throughout. If you want to 
  know how Jason actually plays it see the video above.  

~ There is also a really helpful video that shows you the fingering for the actual song.  I've
  charted out the fingering from the video below. http://vimeo.com/58158295

~ I am not a finger-picker (ha) so I'm giving you the basic chords here in standard tuning
  just to strum along with.

nice tab. the lyrics are wrong somewhere in between though.

btw, could the Eb sound better for a Cm? (and easier to play)

i think the last "I'm thankful for the time I spent with my best friend"
should be
Cm D C Cm G(this one i'm not sure) D

what do you think?
