			     Happy - Brandi Carlile
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Artist: Brandi Carlile
Song: Happy (album and live)
Album: Brandi Carlile
Tabbed By: heyray (Rachel)
Email: heyray13@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard

This tab is a combo of the way Brandi and the twins play this song live and the way it
heard on the album. The version are, however, very similar. The only big difference is
second part of the intro riff, I have tabbed it more like how she plays it live now. The 
can also be done a little different live, too. I tried to get it as close to what they
currently playing on the road. Enjoy and check out her music!
