Hi Bill
It depends on a few things: the pitch of the shed roof, if you will have any snow loads, wind velocity in your area and whether you will use purlins or not.

On 4' center, intuitively, I would think 2X6's, even in the deep south (no snow) would not be sufficient for a 12' span, unless the roof pitch is at least an 8. 2X8 would seem a bit safer.
