Green Day
86 Ver 6 (Guitar tab)

Green Day
86
(Insomniac, 1995)

I worked this out and it seems to one of the most simple
Green Day songs I've learnt so far. Easy to get the hang of.

As with almost all old GD, the guitars are tuned a fret down
on this song, so it actually sounds lower than written here, but
of course it sounds fine in standard tuning as the intervals are
exactly the same.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Special tab notation:

PICKSCRAPE = scrape the side of the pick along the strings
to make a cool scrapey noise.
P.M. = palm-muting = mute the played strings with the palm/side
of your hand near the bridge.

INTRO:

Tre starts off the song, then Billie comes in with a quick pickscrape up:

Exit out the back
And never show your head around again
Purchase your ticket
And quickly take the last train out of town
