I transcribed this album simply because I love it and thinking that this piece
of music should be available to play for as many as possible.
Much of the music can be described as simple chords, so that's what I've
basically done all the way through. But I've of course also included some of the
essential picking patterns, fills and riffs.
If you think any part is missing or if you would just like something typed into
Guitar Pro, I'd love to help you out with that.
In the bottom of the tab I've added the links to the all songs, which I've also
submitted on separately. And all the tabs there include the correct lyrics and a
sweet little comment on the song from my part. ;)

******************************************************************************** 6. _________________ / Jason Mraz / / Clockwatching / /________________/ In this song there are the figure/riff and a couple of chords. The verses include both the riff and then the chords of the riff, just casually picked. So I'll just write like 2x Riff, then pick the chords, which I just notate in common bars. All the used chords can be seen right below. The chords in the chorus are just regularly strummed. It's really not complicated :)
