Be Honest Chords
Be Honest " Jason Mraz

(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVvwTthgDhc)
In the video Jason´s guitar isn´t really in a common tune. If you want to play along
with the video;
the closest I got to his tune is by tuning the guitar to: Db-Ab-Db-Gb-Bb-Eb @446Hz.
Please note the tabs/chords
below don't have the E string dropped to D!
I know the tab/chords of this version are posted more often, but I made some changes to
it and wanted to share.
Enjoy playing!
