Song For A Friend - Jason Mraz
 
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Cosmin Tacea

Tuning: standard
Hi there. I present to you here the tab which is 110% sure right (you don't have
to believe my word, just believe your ears when you play this) for the verses part.
I really didn't have much time in checking out the bridge
but i'm sure you'll find in the other tabs of this song.

( play this last
section faster)
The * represents the fact that there is a slight pause there between sections. The
rest of the notes are close together because they are in quick succession. Watch
the youtube link to see this.
To make it easier for it to be played (as I have seen it from Mr. Mraz himself),
the bottom e- and B-string have to be picked with your middle finger, and for the
G-string use your index finger. This is because, as you can see in the tab, you
often alternate between picking the B- and G-string. When you have to pick the
e-string (like in the first section of the tab) just use your middle finger, then
for the next string to be picked, the B-string, use the same finger, bringing it
up from the e- to the B string. Then pick G and B normally with the middle and
index finger.
As for the small downward strumming motion, use the nails of your index and middle
finger.
