Hey there! This is my first tab ever so please bear with me..

I tabbed this watching Halsey's performance at Vevo LIFT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i0Hds_9t8MU
I genuinely love this song and this version in particular.

I'm aware an accurate tab for this version is already up on this site but I thought I'd tab it the way I play
it anyway, hope you like it! Feel free to suggest any improvement.xx
