SoloEb--------- C Bb Ab------ X4Finally throw in a last switch to a Bb before the bass and drums solo.
CEnd on Eb A quick note: this song was transcribed from the live performance at the '95 MTV Video Awards (the only reason to watch the show). I'm not sure it will be the same version that is on the new album, but it should be close. The lyrics are from the closed captioning of the show and seem to be exact. And now a note for true Green Day fans that listen to more than "Basket Case", "When I Come Around", and "Longview". GD starts a new US tour soon. The opening band is possibly The Riverdales. The new Green Day Album comes out on October 10, and here are the rumored songs: 1. Armatage Shanks (This one was posted by us already) 2. Brat 3. Stuck With Me (You're looking at it) 4. Geek Stink Breath (Soon to be posted) 5. No Pride 6. Bab's Uvula Who? 7. 86 8. Panic Song 9. Stuart And The Ave 10. Brain Stew 11. Jaded (This is probably a cover of the Op IV song) 12. West Bound Sign 13. Tight Was Hill 14. Walking Contradiction That is about it. Send in your comments, suggestions, or Green Day chords. If you what a Green Day song, write us and we will post it. Later, -Chad and Adam.
