About the Artist

Happy Birthday to You is believed to have been written by sisters Patty Hill and Mildred J. Hill in 1893 as a song for school children, but the extent to which they borrowed from other songs is a matter of debate.


For a long time, the copyright was claimed by Warner Music, but the song was declared to be in the public domain as a result of a court ruling in 2016.

As the creator of Hub Guitar, Grey has compiled hundreds of guitar lessons, written several books, and filmed hundreds of video lessons. He teaches private lessons in his Boston studio, as well as via video chat through TakeLessons.
