Song: Happy Pills
Band: Candlebox
Album: Happy Pills

Tab by Joe Costello (jcostello86@gmail.com)

Standard Tuning

This song is fast, and rocks hard. Use distortion through all of it, and there's a
really cool effect in the intro, probably a flanger with distortion. 

Symbols Used:
=============
/ = slide up
X = muted strings
b = bend note to pitch of note in parenthesis

Intro - Riff 1:

2nd Chorus: Play Riff 3 4x

Pre Solo - Play Riff 1 4x

Solo - I have no idea, cause there's actually two guitars soloing at the same time. If you know the
solo, e-mail me... cause I'm not going to figure this one out. Play Riff 1 under the solo though.

Bridge: Guitar 1 play Riff 1.
        Guitar 2 play Fill 1.
