Subject: Better tab version of Jewell song..

Here goes my attempt to tab You were meant for me by Jewell.
This is in fact my first tab, ever.

First tune down ony half step on all strings
~=is a little bendy thing
         ~               ~
|-----------0--||-----------0--||-----------0--||--------------||--------------|

|-----0--------||-----0--------||-----2--------||-----2--------||--------------|
|-3------------||-2------------||-3------------||--------------||--------------|
|--------------||--------------||--------------||-0------------||--------------|

There are a few variations on that last stanza, perhaps she alternates:
    This one   or  This one
|--------------||--------------||--------------||--------------||--------------|
|--------1--3--||--------3--1--||--------------||--------------||--------------|
|----2---------||----2---------||--------------||--------------||--------------|
|-----2--------||-----2--------||--------------||--------------||--------------|
|--------------||--------------||--------------||--------------||--------------|
|-0------------||-0------------||--------------||--------------||--------------|

Ta daa..
that's is, ain't too dificult.
the chords are something along the lines of a G6, C and Eminor,
but I am mostly an ear listener so I'm not too keen on chords beyone basics

To play along with the recorded version, I think you tune down half a step.
I'm not sure if my guitar was or not when I figured it out.  I don't
remember how the whole song went but here's what I did figure out.

This song is quite beautiful. Jewel varies this throughout the song so my advice is to be a little loose about playing it.

here’s a list of the chords and their voicings:
A(sus4)   C(Add9)  D       Em      G       D(inversion) Bm
002230    032030   000232  022000  320000  2002000      024432

Jewel emphasises the open e string a lot in the song and lets it ring

There is one note missing I feel at the end of each riff!. Decent effort
