The Birthday Massacre - Happy Birthday
Album: Nothing and Nowhere; Violet
Tabbed by: MelVinMaSsaCrE

Note: The outro is just both chorus played back to back. Although this song appears on 
both albums, I used Violet to transcribe it. Therefore, the time will not match up with 
Nothing and Nowhere.

Tuning: Drop D (D-A-D-G, low to high)

Intro Bass begins at 0:17
