                             FRANK D. FIXER - Jason Mraz
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Andri
Email: globe194@hotmail.com

Tuning: E A D G B e

! Please Read The Instructions!

- Mraz uses the palm mute to play this song (if you don't know what that is,
  check out this video)
   http://www.youtube.com/watchfeature=player_detailpage&v=QJO5vYO4_8I#t=253s

-The G-string is very important in this song. Mraz always strings the root
 note and then the open G-String. But he also touches the other open strings ! But
 this is very difficult to show in a tab. I recommend you to listen carefully to
 this Version of the Song to figure out his strumming:

Enjoy, and please rate if you like it :) ...or comment if you find a mistake.

   Lyrics:

   Lyrics:
     If Frank D. Fixer were alive today
