BAD ROMANCE - Lady Gaga 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
Tabbed by: dvon88 
Email: xisephiroth@yahoo.com 

This is a vocal cover so I matched all the hammer ons, pull offs, slides, and 
bends to the tone of her voice and when it changes. To see how it is played, 
watch my video of it on YouTube(I have the same name on YouTube: dvon88) 

Tuning:DGCFAD 

Notes in () at slides are not to be picked, just slide to/from that fret to the 
next fret.

i dont know why it put drop c as the tuning but the tab says the correct tuning i used as D standard, also some of the words and palm muting sections didnt line up with the correct part of the tabs, sorry i dont know why and for some reason it came up as unregistered so i can't change it. if anyone knows how i can claim it as my own and edit it that would be great

Pretty awesome, to be honest :)

Only a slight mismatch here and there, but other than that, perfect!
