About this tab version
In the original version (which you can listen to at www.youtube.com/watch?v=sECAEAqshz0), Jason Mraz plays a G to a Gmaj7 in the chorus, but I think it sounds better to play a D in place of the Gmaj7, which is why I put (D) after the Gmaj7. I also wrote out the chords without the lyrics at the very bottom. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming Is this strumming pattern correct? Yes No
