My Chemical Romance – Welcome to the Black Parade (Chords and Tab)

My Chemical Romance – Welcome to the Black Parade(Chords) Starting off Halloween week with what might be the most pompous and overblown song I’ve ever tackled on here.

Jean Sibelius – Karelia Suite (Tab)

Sibelius – Karelia Suite (Tab) With the newly retired David Beckingham stepping up his tabbing, I’ve decided to make Mondays officially Beckingham Tab Day.
