Beatles





Date: Fri, 29 Nov 1996 12:55:21 EST-10
From: MENDE JOVESKI 
Subject: TAB: Birthday - The Beatles

This was from the Beatles' double album that showed that after Sgt 
Peppers and Magical Mystery Tour and the meditation in India, that 
they could still play rock `n' roll. A lot of the songs on the white album 
were written in India and recorded with only about 2 of the Beatles present.
This song is an example of that with a catchy riff to go with it.

Birthday - The Beatles
