Song: Birthday Artist: Beatles, The Album: White Album, The (Disc 2); track 01 Tabbed By: Tsunoyukami Tuning: Standard I'm quite positive this tab is 100% correct. I asked a teacher at my school (who is in a cover band) how he plays the bridge, so I'm quite sure that is how Paul plays it too.

Also, the 7 in the is an optional note, and you can bend instead of sliding if you want.
