                             Hanging by a Moment - Lifehouse
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: stratotastic

Tuning: Half step down, then drop D


Note: The * above the two notes in measure 17 guitar 2 represent a staccato sound for 
those chords. This is one of my first tabs, so please comment and tell me what is/isn’t 
good. Thanks

Edit: I reordered the tab so that it makes more sense with the parts of the song and 
added in some lyrics below the respective parts of the song.
