The Happiest Days of Our Lives Tab - Pink Floyd

NOTE: This tab uses Drop D Tuning.

You can tune your guitar accordingly with the Drop D tuner above.

TUNING: DADG (Drop D)

Time signature: 4/4

r = rest (listen for duration)
h = hammer on
p = pull off
/ = slide (low to high)
\ = slide (high to low)
()= note inside parenthesis not plucked or hammered on
{}= note inside pointed parenthesis still ringing from previous measure

* My tabs are meant to be read in conjunction with listening to the song. In other
words, there are no specific notations to account for note / rest duration. However,
you will find that I’ve made an attempt to strategically space the notes and rests
within their respective measures in order to represent the appropriate durations.
