Life Is Wonderful Tab

   
Jason Mraz
Mr. A-Z

Following in the footsteps of my last tabs, I wanted to know how to play this song, so 
my tab. I tried my best, email me Mageball24@kc.rr.com and recomendations and I'll fix 
as fast as possible.

played 2 times, capo on second fret, all notes relevant to that (remember that the 
to the first time you play the verse is different than the second)

Second time:

(you play the first part, but the change is in the last, so i didn't include the first part)

e--------------------|
b--------------------|
g----------------3---|
d------4------4--4---|
a----4-4----4-4--4---|
e--2------2------2---|

Chorus Outro:

Basically here he does some finger picked note progressions on this chord:

e-----
b-----
g--5--
d--6--
a--6--
e--4--

He plays this into the verse for the first portion of it and it goes back like the last 
except instead of the 1-2-3-strum pattern, he finger picks different notes in the chord. 
it plays out like this:

(i've written out the chords to be finger picked, not the exact notes, you can just 
the chords softly, or, be adventurous and find a cool picking pattern that sounds good with 
song.)

e---------------------------------------------------|
b--------------5--5--5--5--8--8--8--8---------------|
g--5--5--5--5--6--6--6--6--9--9--9--9--8--8--8--8---|
d--6--6--6--6--6--6--6--6--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9---|
a--6--6--6--6--4--4--4--4--7--7--7--7--9--9--9--9---|
e--4--4--4--4--------------------------7--7--7--7---|

First Ending:

e-----
b-----
g--3--
d--4--
a--4--
e--2--

Same Verse (second time):

this is where a big change occurs. The chords stay the same, but instead of picking them 
using the 1-2-3-strum pattern, he plays each chord, lets it ring, then plays it again, 
let's it ring. Take into consideration, there is a large band with a base and drums and
possibly second guitar when he recorded this.

e---------------------------|
b--------5--5--8--8---------|
g--5--5--6--6--9--9--8--8---|
d--6--6--6--6--9--9--9--9---|
a--6--6--4--4--7--7--9--9---|
e--4--4--------------7--7---|

Bridge Thing:

(third verse really)

plays this first:


e--11-9-7-6--11-9-7-6---|
b-----------------------|
g-----------------------|
d-----------------------|
a-----------------------|
e-----------------------|

after this i'm not sure what he plays, when i play it, I generally just solo around with that.

I hope this helps, once again, please contact me with any suggestions, questions, and 
rate this, high if it deserves it.
