Say Anything - Death For My Birthday [demo]     Eb Tuning

This is the acoustic demo version of "Death For My Birthday" from the Deluxe Edition of
Anything's self-titled album. The only thing I'm really unsure on are the verse chords.
in the ballpark with them, but I'm not convinced that they're entirely right. Everything 
seems accurate to me, but any input is welcome.


VERSES

Guitar 1:
(0:01, 0:16, 1:05, 1:21)

Instead of using this chord in the verses:

eb|-----
Bb|-----

...you can use:

eb|-----
Bb|--5--
Gb|--x--

Eb|-----
