Thanks UncleCrispy for the high quality vids of
Jason Mraz's live performances.

It's not a perfect tab, but it sounds pretty good.
I haven't tabbed all the variations he uses, but
you'll need to listen to the song to get the rhythm
anyway.

Yeah pretty good anyway, it's not so far from the original. You did a good job, it's not a easy song to get, but then, it's real pleasure to play

Great tab - and great job figuring out the chords!
I have some correct names and small corrections for them however :)

Bmadd11/E? 024430 = Bm(add11) x24430
A6/9? x04422 = F#m(add11)/a
Gmaj7/13? 3x4430 = Gmaj7(add13)
G6/E? 025430 = Em9 024030

So it's just two chords that are very little off!

...You need a song structure however! How many times of that and that... You'll have 4 stars from me, till the tab's improved :)
