Song: Birthday

Artist: Beatles, The

Album: White Album, The (Disc 2); track 01

Tabbed By: Tsunoyukami



Tuning: Standard



I'm quite positive this tab is 100% correct. I asked a teacher at my school (who is in a

cover band) how he plays the bridge, so I'm quite sure that is how Paul plays it too.

I couldn't tab the timing out, so you have to listen to the song. Also, the 7 in the

is an optional note, and you can bend instead of sliding if you want.
