Hell jea! Perfect Tab!!! I love this Tab is soo good but the solo at the last part is a bit different but everything else is 100% right!

This is a great Tab! Thank you, it rocks!!

this is IMHO almost perfect. u and i differ on the way we play the 1st solo and maybe 3 riffs along the whole song. but congratulations! awesome tab!
July 29 2005, 12:00 am by manz |
by the way just wondering if any1 knows an easier way to play the second part of the second solo (quick part) if so, id appreciate if youd email it to me...manz_rocknrule@hotmail.com

Riff 4 of "I don't care is wrong" apart from that pretty good

Brilliant, apart from its Middle East not Middle mast on the lyrics for i dont care

There were a couple of other faults on lyrics too, but hey this is a guitar site not lyrics so awesome ^^

hey mexican_boy666 actually reizig did an entire album of "American Idiot" and he copied it from there if you dont believe me search for American Idiot and look at the 1st album tab and its 5 stars and its by reizig so he didnt copy it from some1 he copied it from his own album tab.
+1   August 25 2005, 12:00 am by legend and a1/2 |
oh yea, great tab and ur album tab is awesome.
+1   August 28 2005, 12:00 am by GD_GC |
It is pretty good, but since i have the official tab book, i know how it actually goes. The first part of the solo, for one thing, is supposed to be played with those two note chords with the mute in between on part five. Good job, though.
-2   September 12 2005, 12:00 am by *'-'* |
Well done. You have long patience guy.

In the 1st bit in the order you say play Riff1 but you put no riff 1 me confused you american fool.

THIS IS A GREAT TAB AND IT REALLY HELPED ME OUT TO GET THIS SONG ON THE GUITAR JUST RIGHT. WHOEVER TABBED THIS I GIVE YOU ALOT OF CREDIT BECAUSE TABBING A NINE MINUTE SONG JUST ISN'T EASY TO MOST PEOPLE, INCLUDING ME. EXCELLENT JOB!!!!

Nice tab. Best tab ive seen.

But i have a question, what does the 'p' in 'Tales of Another Broken Home' mean? (Im fairly new at the guitar)
November 11 2005, 11:50 am by Orcane |
nice tab, but the 2nd part is wrong, there is no guitar at first, then it comes in after like 7-10 seconds when billy joe says "at the 7-11 where is was taught" and the guitar comes in there.
kick ass album tab too :)

pretty good thanx for puttin g in the lyrics
-7   December 10 2005, 01:32 pm by GreenDayRocks_7 |
You know what the problem with your tab is reizig, the problem with the tab is that THE WHOLE SONG IS IN POWER CHORDS, so what i am gonna do is do the correct version of the song so everyone can play it correctly.
December 17 2005, 12:14 pm by Buchan |
the tab is right, i saw the band Live, Milton Keynes 2005, i was right at front, even on the dvd, major fan of them ive seen they live loads of times, got videos, and this is right, so the person saying its wrogn can f*** off, u did a good job dude

sweet tab..
-4   January 29 2006, 01:51 pm by silverstein_x |
So reizig, next time I would really rethink copying and pasting this WORD FOR WORD from some poor kid named Matt Nicholls who originally tabbed this on another guitar tab site. I have a printed copy of both "your version" and Matt's and they're exactly alike. And he submitted his BEFORE you did.
Just a suggestion, loser.
January 29 2006, 08:16 pm by mezmetized33 |
hey silverstein_x, what tab sight is that other thing on? oh yeah and greendayrocks_7, whats wrong with power chords? thats how bj plays, so don't blame reizig for tabbing it,
as long as it sounds good
February 15 2006, 04:06 am by Mike_rocka_boy |
yeah all i could crit is the solo on tales from another broken home, just doesnt seem right. AWESOME TAB THOUGH MAN GOOD WORK
February 18 2006, 01:22 pm by blink182_4_life |
u have most of the tab right.i have the actual book for it.and some of the verses are wrong dude.but good job ne ways.i might tab it sometime

dude this shit ****in rocked
+1   June 26 2006, 08:12 pm by gtrplayr1 |
terrible solo and piano interlude in tales from another broken home. look at the other comments to find out how to do the solo, the piano interlude is Fm Eb G# C# C# Eb G# (the small part [u know what i mean] u do a complete barre chord of a G# on the A string like this-X,11,13,13,13,X] u sweep pick downward) C# Eb G# C# (deep and hard)C# Eb. try this dude
June 30 2006, 02:28 pm by stabdoll |
dude, you do know that if you drop the low E string to D you can play power chords throughout the whole song? Im in a cover band and thats how we play it. it's way easier that way.
June 30 2006, 05:24 pm by PsYkO_kiLLa90 |
pretty sweet 4 most of the tab except i dont care sounds kind of off and that interlude in tales from another broken home is just horrible. Nice try tho

-3   February 17 2007, 12:42 am by Emo guy |
You fuking suk!!!! u shit face...u dont even know how 2 substitute a 6 with a 1 on the next string up.....cock face
+2   March 1 2007, 10:25 pm by XxGibsonSGxX |
Okay, Emo guy, be quiet and listen to some hardcore screaming. Ayron, palm muting is just placing your palm of your strumming hand on the bridge when you pick, so you get a thicker percussive sound. I also play the last solo like blink182fan. Sounds better. In the very start, the chords you play 4 times each are Db and Bbm (all 6 strings, with A and D on the 8th fret and the rest on six; barre) And Dearly Beloved is wrong; i don't wanna type it out cause it takes too long without a tab editor.
March 4 2007, 08:11 am by ayron123 |
thanks gibson for teaching me and sorry guys because im just a noob!!!!!
March 4 2007, 08:12 am by ayron123 |

in "dearly beloved", u said an electric guitar is palm muting, but i think it's just bass. i might be wrong, but i'm just suggesting...

im a bassist, sso dont ask why im on the guitar bit =P
but stop giving the guy critisism
"its completly wrong"
like
that, ive just read all the comments for this =O
and yeah, corrections are good..
but why say oh you suck blah blah
blah?
give the guy a break
why dont you try tabbing it "correctly"
and getting 5 stars for it..
but anyway =P
i
cant say if it sounds good or not coz i cant play it ^^
but well done for getting 5 stars dude
April 5 2008, 05:47 am by ѻ |
Hi man top notch tab, great effort.
To anyone who says this is "All wrong" or "Off tune", you should STFU and GTFO! ur probably either useless at guitar or u cant tune ur instument.
April 5 2008, 05:52 am by ѻ |
great tab, top notch.

May 3 2008, 11:36 pm by g_tab_man |
hey green day rocks 7, guess what. Billie joe plays power chords. There are only a couple of songs where he doesnt use power chords, mostly on the warning album. and if it sounds good, then why do you say that its wrong? Excellent job. Not perfect, but insanely good. I learned my way to play it from greendayauthority.com. Yours sounds amazing though. Five stars.

okay, imma ask a question that someone else asked somewhere waaay up there:: in Jesus of Suburbia, what is the Riff1 thing in the order of the song, there is no riff 1 written down.

and i think Mister Bass Guy is right, in Dearly beloved, i think it is bass thats palm muted...cuz theres chords in the background....
December 29 2008, 05:07 pm by gdpunkdude |

i think on city of the dead verse the last two power chords need to be like this...

May 18 2012, 03:25 pm by Tan010 |
The solo at Tales of Another Broken Home or Part V. is incorrect. You have it tabbed on the correct frets but not the correct string. It should be played on the D string instead. Also I'm not a hundred percent sure on the second part of the solo either. But otherwise great tab. Maybe four stars with the solo wrong here. :D
February 24 2013, 02:50 pm by LyteBelatto |
I believe the solo to be incorrect. I played it with the album and it did not sound right at all.
