Hey, sweet tab, man. The acoustic parts sound exactly like the album.
+19   October 13 2004, 12:00 am by BoucheDag |
Holy croch! This tab is kickass. It's hella accurate.
Like the second measure of the distorted bridge is this:
e| |----------------|
B| |----3-----------|
G| |4-4-4-4-4-4-4-0-|
D| |4-4-4-4-4-4-4-0-|
A| |2-2-2-2-2-2-2-0-|
E| |----------------|
If you listen to the CD, that's how it is, they only play 3 on the
B string that one time. All tabs should put the little things like
that in there.

LOSER!! u just copied that from the greenday authority site, www.greendayauthority.com
+53   October 13 2004, 12:00 am by DanSumthing |
MM_rocks, I bought the album, I listened to the song, and I tabbed what I heard. I've never been to the website you mentioned. I don't plagerize. You're an asshole.
+30   October 13 2004, 12:00 am by DanSumthing |
Okay, I looked at the tab that you accuse me of copying, MM_rocks, and it's not even close to mine. The intro is the same, because we both got it right, but look at the rest of the tab, dumbass, there are big differences.
Here's the tab he claims I copied:

mm's a flaming crotch rocket. the tabs really arnt that comparable, the only reason they are the same is because both of them are right. just because two tabbers are good enough to get the tabs mostly right doesnt mean that one of them copied the other, retard

the last part ***ed up but u get the idea
+1   November 18 2004, 12:00 am by DanSumthing |
Hmmm... I'm gonna have to say no to that zman. That's a lot more notes than are being played in the solo. All's you need to play the solo are a rhythm guitar and one lead.
-11   November 19 2004, 12:00 am by zman919191 |
no, i saw them live and listened to it over and over to make sure and thats what they play
-8   November 19 2004, 12:00 am by zman919191 |
can't you hear the high pitched note(the 20 and 19 on the B-string) being played, if you listen really closely u can hear it
-8   November 19 2004, 12:00 am by zman919191 |
and on the high E string, i think 21 is maybe being played too
-7   November 19 2004, 12:00 am by zman919191 |
and yes this is all done on 2 guitars
-9   November 21 2004, 12:00 am by zman919191 |
i meant a 22 on the high E string (not a 21)
+8   November 24 2004, 12:00 am by Sumfartyuno |
If you saw them live and you're certain that, thats the correct way to play it, perhaps you should make a tab for Wake me up when September Ends live tab.

Brilliant tab. My tab got rejected as it was exactly the same!!!

^^Well, that's probably the reason it got rejected ;). But it's a real kickass tab, DanSumthing, you rule!

MM_rocks must be a really stupid LOSER!!

yeah, its pretty good, i like it. the song rocks too! im learning it for my band at my skool so im trusting this one is the best... i ant to learn it perfect!

Dan your ar the f*'in man. I think this is almost the best song on the CD, and i think u have mastered this song. Crazy tabbing man. Keep it up
+1   March 15 2005, 12:00 am by MetAlliCa_007 |
Dude nice f-ing tab man it's really good it sounds just ike they play it you should tab a bunch more tabs ur really god at it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
+1   March 28 2005, 12:00 am by TheUnchosenOne |
The fourth and fifth notes should be switched in the first 5 measures in the intro verse. I know, technically they're the same note, but they're different enough in sound for it to make a difference. Otherwise he would have tabbed it 0-0-3 or 5-5-3, right?
+1   March 31 2005, 12:00 am by EbonyLesPaul |
Great tab dude. 5 stars ^_^
-1   April 8 2005, 12:00 am by csheridan |
nice tab man its really easy to figure out now Keep it up!

This was a great tab. I didn't find anything wrong with it. I looked at the tab and listened to the song at the same time like 3 times to make sure. It kicked ass.
-1   May 17 2005, 12:00 am by XxLuckyDicexX |
Perfect Tab for a great song.

this tab is great, who cares where it came from as long as it is correct, i mean wouldnt you rather play the right version? hint at MM_rocks *cough* loser *cough* well done mateys

Hey, man. I agree with the cool tab, but I think you may be a little off. I've listened very carefully so please consider:

Hey Fangorra, do you think it matters in the slightest if you play it that way or the other way, they sound exactly same lol
July 13 2005, 12:00 am by tj4bama14 |
very good tab, i cant believe you tabbed all this out just by ear. great job man. rock on!
-1   July 17 2005, 12:00 am by Aaron120 |
Hey, great tab! I bought the book for the faster song tabs and this is perfect. The only thing that differs is the solo and yours is correct except up one string from the book.

I saw the video it's so ***ing great. And as I said before, this tab ***ing kicks ass!

great tab dude...wish more tabs were accurate like this one..great job
+1   July 26 2005, 12:00 am by DanSumthing |
Put spaces between my numbers thingys?
I'll assume you're referring to the solo part of my tab. I realized that there were no spaces in between the numbers in the solo, but I was trying to keep the measures consistant, so that each space was equal to 1/16th note. I assumed that most people were smart enough to figure out that 1212 did not mean play the 1,212th fret, and since I've had no complaints about it until you posted, it turns out that most people ARE smart enough, and you aren't.

To everyone else, thanks a lot for all the positive comments, and for voting. I didn't think when I made this tab that it would someday be in the top 15 of the top rated tabs list!
-1   July 26 2005, 12:00 am by finefly |

I agree with Fangorra.
But I think the second 0 should be a ghost note.

In the verses for the acoustic guitar... the Cm chord should be played

=) Hope you change it. I haven't really looked through the rest,but other then this so far it's right-on. It's nice to see people who actually put in their effort to write tabs instead of just plonking down nonsense.

um ive never heard this song i just wanted see the comments since its the number one tab but ill give it five stars cus it sounds like its good to me
+1   August 23 2005, 12:00 am by jjrawson |
The recent edit about the C chord is a gud one coz thats how Billie-Joe plays it live. However, i still play the regualr C it sounds a bit better coz i like to use the open strings whenever i can instead of the fretted alternative i think its sounds beta. i have got use to the transcaction as well from the c to the wht is it Cm or summat
-1   August 27 2005, 12:00 am by evilmobgirl |

don't rate tabs before you hear the song and play it along with it.

+2   August 28 2005, 12:00 am by GD_GC |
This is a great tab. I have the official tab book for it and it almost perfectly matches the real thing. The correction is right, the book says that you play a C barre chord and not the open chord. The only correction that i can make is that the solo actually goes

C'mon, people.
Stop sending me emails about the solo and how it should be played on the B and e strings. (see above comment)
I got the tab book a couple months after I created this tab, and decided to keep my version, since the notes used are the same, and I find my version easier to play. It doesn't matter what fret position you play it at, as long as you are playing the right notes.
-1   August 30 2005, 12:00 am by GD_GC |
I wasn't trying to be critical of your tab, because i know it is the same notes, and your tab is incredible. Rock On! And, BlackDog, no one cares about N Sync. Take your dumbass comments somewhere else. This site is not for you.
-1   August 31 2005, 12:00 am by mistaman |
great tab, 5 stars, easy to learn, just overall amazingly correct. and tomorrow is september. rock on!
-1   September 1 2005, 12:00 am by mcr_01_fan |
excellent tab dude, it's spot on! but your missing one tiny little part and thats grt II's (Jason White's) part in the intro, Something is actually played, but it sounds like a keyboard so it's hard to tell, but apart form that excellent job! 5 stars! *****
-1   September 2 2005, 12:00 am by DanSumthing |
Yeah, that's a keyboard playing, but I was thinking about adapting that for guitar and adding it to my tab anyway.
We'll see...

you are the gregreaterist tabberist i have seened, everist.
geez, youre tabis so googood its effectinge mysability toosh thinch stateh
+2   September 9 2005, 12:00 am by DanSumthing |
So I lack tabbing skill because I make tabs for songs that Brooks doesn't like...
I'm sorry, but that doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
Please use the comments section to comment on the quality of the tab, and not as a way to rip on the band who made the song.
Also, while I could care less that my tabs make it onto some list, I am proud of all my tabs, because I don't submit half-assed tabs like a majority of the tabbers on this site do.
Did I ever say that this song was hard to tab?
Have I ever bragged about how great of a tabber I am?
No. I just tabbed what I heard.
You want to come in here and rip on my tabbing ability because you don't like Green Day's new stuff?
That is pathetic and sad.

I've only just started learning the guitar recently, so I'm not too familiar with the terminology, but can someone tell me what chord position I should have my left hand in for the first 4 measures of verse 1? I want to know incase there's a quicker way of making the transition from measure 2 to 3.

Thanks.

Nice tab bro im pretty sure its exactly to the album
-1   October 13 2005, 02:41 am by xPaRaNoIAx |
Dan did what he could if its fully correct or not, its up to him. If you dont like the song or green day, go to your childhoodsong and play with your toys and leave the people alone pathetic childeren. respect people's work!
If you dont like the tab, go to your mama and complain there! Respect is hard to find in this maggots world grow up stupids! Don't like this version? GO FIND A OTHER ONE! don like the song? WHY LOOKING AFTER THE TAB? if you need attention, kill yourself! Shut up if you dont have something good to say.
Respect to those who keep music alife. Death to those who are egocentric, stupid, racist, egoïstic and only talk crap!

Dannyboy, keep tabbing... ;)
The noobs, go to hell!
-1   October 15 2005, 02:58 pm by theguitarman07 |
Billie Joe has more money that youll ever have Ducttape83 plus the songs meaning has nothing to do with the month of september 2005 obviously you cant see into the underlying metaphors of a song and to echo what xPaRaNoIAx said if you dont like the song or green day dont look at the f**kin tab and dont double post either we can get the point through one post

October 16 2005, 02:45 pm by DanSumthing |
Hey, Avenged, I posted this tab on October 13, 2004. It's been here for over a year. Do you have any proof that your tab was written before that?
If not, I suggest you shut the hell up.

you copied this from the greenday authority site, www.greendayauthority.com. u could say this as a comment

October 19 2005, 01:28 pm by Mr.t |
Try and do something useful before critisising other peoples work. does it make you feel special?
******
btw i noticed Billie Joe puts a vibrato on the higher note in the solo
(live) so u can try that if you want
peace
October 21 2005, 03:34 pm by DanSumthing |
Uhm... That's my tab, you idiot.
Someone saw it on Ultimate-Guitar, thought it was good, and posted it over at MXtabs.net, is that hard to understand?
I'll tell you AGAIN, my tab has been here since October of 2004, you can tell just by scrolling up and looking at the date of the first comment. The tab on MXtabs just went up a few months ago. Why do you think the tab there has no "tabbed by" on it?
Are you that stupid?

WHY DO PEOPLE LOVE THIS SONG< I like Green Day and all but let's please let it go
+1   October 22 2005, 03:28 pm by kiefermatot |
People love this song because it's a great song and it sounds nice to them. There's no reason not to love it.
-1   October 23 2005, 02:35 am by xPaRaNoIAx |
And because its a sad song! and i like sad songs! It critisise war a bit, and i always listen to songs like that (for example: one - metallica; war and Boom! of system of a down; Zombie - The Cranbarries; etc)
-1   October 23 2005, 01:14 pm by DanSumthing |
Just the video is about the war, the song wasn't written with the war in mind. Billie Joe wrote this song about his father, who died of cancer when Billie Joe was 10.

-1   October 24 2005, 01:37 pm by BoucheDag |
You're right, kiefer, avengend7foldrox has made only one tab, and all he did was copy a bunch of avengedsevenfold songs from other people and put them in one tab and label it as an "album tab".
He doesn't even give credit to the real authors of the tabs that he stole. I gave him a 1 because that's the most pathetic thing I've ever seen.

Also, just to clear something up, I was the second person ever to comment on this tab the day that it went up, and this tab was the only one that existed for Wake Me Up When September Ends on the internet. There's no way this is copied from anywhere.
-1   October 26 2005, 01:32 pm by DanSumthing |
Guys, just ignore that avenged guy, let's keep the comments about the tab, ok?
If he wants to believe I copied this tab, let him think it.
I know it's not true.

great song, good tab, keep tabing

if you dont like it tab it yourself!

dont like Green Day then what the hell are u lookin at it for!

u could write anything better, then do it

even if this is one of the easiest songs in the world to play
that doesnt make it a bad song

Yaw... Great Job Yo! A times ago, I saw the other tab. I think that was perfectly accurate. But, this tab was EXTREMELY (Is this spell right?) Accurate. I open my hat for you

And for avenged--or what-fu*ck-ever her name, Why don`t you drown your head into your momma butthole, you`re smarty-pants? If there`s a word more stupid than fu*cking-da*mn-stupid-jerk, I think that was your name.

Thanks for attention

Exactly. Every band has sad, slower songs.

Here's some of the softer stuff by them, it may not be like Wake Me Up When September Ends..but they all have their moments.

I Wont See You Tonight Part I
Warmness on the Soul

um...well it doesn't really matter that much now, does it? Although there might be slightly different tone colouring...but that's just a REALLY small detail.
-1   November 3 2005, 01:26 pm by a7xf***inrules |
well at least avenged finally shut up about this shit and finally got a life so we wont have to worry about him/her witchever it is.

nice tab dan
-1   November 4 2005, 07:51 pm by kiefermatot |
acdcfreak175 plays the skin flute.

If you don't like the tab, why don't you try saying "goodjob, but I don't think this is correct..nice try though" or something like that.

And if you don't think this is correct - you're tone deaf.
-1   November 5 2005, 01:18 am by Maitinin |
shiiit... ease off guys... this's just a comment box for a tab, man...

Tuning: CGCFAD
how do u tune to this??
-1   November 6 2005, 09:42 am by Maitinin |
Buy yourself a tuner and know that you have to tune the string lower than standard (or else they'll 'probably' break)
You can also find the notes on the fretboard and tune the entire guitar down after it's own different strings... If you want a further explaination, just mail me...
-1   November 6 2005, 01:02 pm by buttonfreek |
god, i'm so glad i said it twice!
-1   November 6 2005, 06:18 pm by flyingskull |
my bad maitinin.
-1   November 6 2005, 06:55 pm by Arch_Enemy_1234 |
well i have a tuner but it doesnt have c and f and a few other notes on it so i cant tune to some songs until i get a better tuner which will probably never happen cuz my mom wont take me out to get a new one untill i get my new 700$ guitar(which i hope will be soon (yay)) so im screwed till then
-1   November 7 2005, 08:37 pm by rockstar_madz |
er...awesome tab dude

I also agree with the last three comments about the comments and

UUUgh!! I meant to say weird comments and swearing
-1   November 13 2005, 10:12 am by Hangar_18 |
Oh yea, Arch Enemy 1234 if you want to tune to Drop "C" (CGCFAD) just tune the sixth string (E) down 2 steps and the rest down 1 whole step
-1   November 15 2005, 04:33 pm by guitarkid2113 |
Excellent tab man. I love it and now I play it.
-1   November 18 2005, 10:03 pm by aprescott_27 |
awesome tab, dude! wish my tabs got that good of a rating!
avenged7foldrox, get a life.

great song...but try this on the guitar solo, it sounds better:

|----------------|----------------|----------------|
|----13----13--13|----13----13--13|----14----14--14|

-1   November 29 2005, 03:36 pm by peepee182 |
he is being a fag, nice tab, DanSumthing did you excect this tab to big this big of a tab?
-1   November 29 2005, 11:04 pm by DanSumthing |
Not at first.
I tabbed this song even before they released Holiday as their second single off American idiot.
But when I heard that Wake Me Up was going to be released as the single after that, I was pretty sure that a lot of people were going to start looking at it.
I certainly didn't anticipate this making the top 5 highest rated tabs, though :)
-1   November 30 2005, 12:59 pm by FedEx_Man |
lol yea dan i didnt either no offense its a good tab but didnt seem like the most popular song to me the first time i heard it
December 4 2005, 09:12 pm by Schmorgasblab |
hmmmm. Lets see, I'd pick something darker, but that's just me. My axe is a dark ass blue. Anyway, This tab is ****ing amazing.
-1   December 4 2005, 09:14 pm by Schmorgasblab |
Hahahhah. I just read something. tuba_boy13. uhhhh It's this persons own personal interpritation of the song.
-1   December 11 2005, 06:41 pm by verycherry |
Very nice! Now I actually know how to play a green day song perfectly!
December 13 2005, 11:38 am by AshI_234 |
GOOD!
GOOD TAB!
I LIKE IT!
THANK YOU!
-1   December 17 2005, 06:12 pm by JD7 |
Dan, this tab rocks. it's perfect, and all those guys who think you copied it can choke on thier Grandma's dick.

Very well done, and I think the intro sounds better mixed, like so:

|e| |----------------|----------------|
|B| |----3-----3-----|----3-----3-----|
|G| |--0-----0-------|--0---0---------|
|D| |5-----5---------|5-------5-------|
|A| |----------------|----------------|
|E| |----------------|----------------|

But that's just me, so ignore me if ya want to =D

ps crapige song good tab
-1   December 19 2005, 05:12 pm by phindian848 |
umm...good tab..but ahh dont flatter urself with how long it took you...lol i have the book..and im sure thats where u got this tab from..lol..
-1   December 19 2005, 07:58 pm by DanSumthing |
For phindian848 and any other stupid person who thinks I copied this out of a book:
The American Idiot album was released on September 21st, 2004.
I posted this tab less than a month later on October 13th (see the date of the first comment).
The offical tab book was published exactly THREE MONTHS after my tab went up, on January 13th, 2005.
This is all information that can be obtained in about 90 seconds using Google.
Look it up.
Do the math.
Those 90 seconds of research would've saved you from looking like an idiot, but now it's too late.
-1   December 20 2005, 10:07 am by Jamie93 |
yeah, he copied it!! if you even looked at the solo, you could see that it was just the same!!! I think all of should shut up!! he didn't copied it, why can't you fags just believe him, it is, no matter what, an excellent tab!!!
-1   December 20 2005, 11:28 am by metal4all |
The tab book copied him if anything lol.

-1   January 19 2006, 03:16 pm by DanSumthing |
Here you go phindian, like I said, 90 seconds of google is all it takes to find out when that tab book was published.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0757937381/104-5529995-7502365?v=glance&n=283155
Scroll down and look at the product details and check the publishing date.
January 13th is three months after my tab was posted.
You lose. Let it go.
-1   February 2 2006, 11:35 am by JasonZX12R |
Why havn't I seen school spelled "school" yet in any of these comments? lol

The tab rocks, good job. I can see why everyone thinks its copied. It is, everyone copies it off the same song, no wonder why others are so close to DanSumthings. They are close, but not the same, his is the best I've seen for this song.
-3   February 3 2006, 06:02 am by The_Carva |
This is abit wrong so a thought I would correct it.
This gives a better sound, it may be the tiniest bit harder to play
but it isn't hard.

My last comment was abit dodgey what I mean is:

This is a good tab, but Green Day is a 3-man band, so how can their be two guitars? you cant play chrods on bass, er- at least i dont think you can
-1   February 26 2006, 07:52 pm by FalloutGREEN182 |
PERFECT TAB

Green Day always has other people play the parts they can't like when they are live or in studio obviously, so it would kinda suck to have a 3 man band
-1   February 27 2006, 06:24 pm by avenged7foldrox |
jason white plays the second guitar. they're not really a 3-man band, they just never put him in any of their videos or on any of their cds but if you watch 'bullet in a bible', they use the guy with the red epiphone guitar on the left looking at the stage
-1   March 3 2006, 09:01 pm by blink 182 #1 |
fantastic job dan sounds exactly like it except for a bit of the picking in the begining other than that keep it up!

-1   March 10 2006, 05:26 pm by ac-dc fan1221 |
the_carva isnt dumb and his comment isn't. there was a live performance, not Bullet in a Bible but that was how he picked the intro. Thats all I am saying.
-1   March 17 2006, 05:14 pm by Golden_creature |

great tab ... but why would u play the fifth fret on the third string in the intro? why not just play the open second string twice? other than that, it was great! good job dude.
-1   April 22 2006, 05:28 pm by xSpiK3Spi3Ge1x |
You play the 5th fret, 4th string b/c you won't get the ring of all three plucks otherwise.

-1   May 18 2006, 11:33 am by leony03 |
Great tab!! Learn't the song from it. But i found that if you play the solo on yhe first and second strings, then it gives a much clearer sound.

-1   June 15 2006, 02:43 am by PineappleBass13 |
This Tab is wrong. I have the Green Day official American Idiot book and its close, but not quite right
-1   June 15 2006, 02:51 am by PineappleBass13 |
well, now that i look at my last comment it seems kinda harsh
But yeah, i guess it's so close. You did a really good job. I wish they would post my tab, god dammit, it's been 2 weeks
-1   June 16 2006, 09:28 pm by camlocknz |
great tab its awesome
-1   June 24 2006, 11:30 am by Randomnossity |
This is great
-1   June 29 2006, 06:30 pm by user|name |
the intro sounds nothing like the song when i play it on my acoustic
-1   June 29 2006, 06:33 pm by user|name |
im not sayin im right or not
-1   June 29 2006, 06:54 pm by DanSumthing |
Tune your guitar to EADGBe then it'll sound right.
-1   June 29 2006, 08:03 pm by user|name |
i have it on standerd tuning my guitar must be screwed up or sumthin
-1   July 1 2006, 02:17 pm by guitar_geek_43 |
I'm still not quite getting the 9th mesure. I don't quite get how to play it and it's a little confusing. Other wise, it's pretty good!
-1   July 1 2006, 06:33 pm by DanSumthing |
What do you mean?
I tabbed it so that every dash is equal to a 16th note, and therefore every other dash is an 8th note. Just play it like it's tabbed, and you shouldn't have any problems.
-1   July 3 2006, 05:40 pm by user|name |
i figuerd out why it didnt work my guitar tuner is screwed up
-1   July 7 2006, 05:41 pm by Bubkus123 |
How immature do you have to be to go out of your way to rip on a band in the comments section of a tab that someone made on a tablature site?
-1   July 11 2006, 07:21 pm by Downstrike |
great tab 5* if you figured it out yourself one correction though. in the solo listen to it again i think it goes

-----------------------------------------------------------------

I know, that the open G string and the 4th string on the 5th fret are both the same note, but for perfections sake, that is how it's played. Billie Joe plays that in concert.

hey,DanSumthing,Youre awesome,keep it up..

Somethings have not sounded right when i played,turns out Ive been playing in the wrong measure(call me a dumbass)

and,eh...Discofootman,and anyone else trying to correct it that way,its in the same notes,try learning about alternate fret positions that give out the same notes,Its pretty much the same as Ive seen,usually alternate fret positions would give out a different "tone" although it is in the same note,thats beacause of the string thickness and stuff like that,all in all,Dan,you did awesome work...coming from a 13 year old kid,I hope this is mature enough for you..haha

erm...and dont flame Dan,it saves you from getting banned and stuff
-1   July 31 2006, 04:53 pm by GTR_15 |
screw all u people who r flaming this tab IT ROCKS

nice tabbing but this song is way to overated
-1   August 21 2006, 05:56 pm by mcl guitar |
awsome no way there is a better tab then this 5 frickin stars!!!
-1   August 22 2006, 12:47 am by Zeppelin_101 |
good tab...for beginners. the solo is brutal
-1   August 29 2006, 07:45 pm by bene8754 |
Dan, thanks for such a great tab. You've quite the ear for tabbing. Nevermind the 12 year olds.
-1   September 1 2006, 12:12 am by Squirrel1993 |
hey...dan i hope u see this. i hope i didn't post this too late. but there is a part missing. after the final:
5
5
3...there is that weird faded part and i was hoping either u or someone else could tab that out...i've seen Billie play it on the Bullet in a Bible DVD but if someone could tab that that would be great!
-1   September 5 2006, 10:31 pm by Bubkus123 |
It's only 3 notes.
Surely you can figure that out without me.
-1   September 6 2006, 08:51 pm by DanSumthing |
Yeah, I didn't tab that part because I thought it was a synthesizer or something and not a guitar.
-1   September 9 2006, 12:43 am by PineappleBass13 |
Zeppelin_101, I just want you to know that Green Day Is not an Emo Band! and not only 12 year olds listen to them! i know 44 year olds who listen to them, my mum likes them, my uncles, my 55 yr old guitar teacher absoluteley loves them and so do ****loads of other people around the world! today's 12 year olds weren't even born when Green Day came out in 1994! yet they still sold 10 million copies of Dookie World Wide! get your god damn facts right! Green Day is The Worlds Greatest PUNK ROCK band. Emo is a crappy little stereotype that describes 13-yr-old wannabe's who are just trying to fit in with the trend. Emo does not describe 34-yr-old Music LEGENDS!
-1   September 12 2006, 09:55 pm by nextgenrocker |
green day said in an interview that this next album is going to be like their original sound, like dookie.

-1   September 26 2006, 03:57 pm by Scarlatti |
Great job, the intro sounds great...

350 scarlatti.
Just a wonder is dansumthing still around?
If he is he should be very proud of his work...still.
I have to laugh at the previous comments quite a few scrolls up. Apparently there can be quite a few dumba$$es on this site I see. Anyways awesome tab and if your still around...YOU'RE AWESOME!!!
-1   October 1 2006, 10:36 pm by Squirrel1993 |

October 10 2006, 09:16 am by BluesPunk'nRock |
Great really really great work mate, I'm glad there are people out there to help us a little.. Less talented guitar players up to the top! Long live Kurt Cobain, Guns N' Roses 4-ever and may Johnny Cash's deep dark voice never fade out from our minds.
October 13 2006, 09:55 pm by Squirrel1993 |
W.M.U.W.S.E. solo. ok if u go to AOL.com and search in the videos and type like 'Wake Me Up When September Ends' you can see them play live in AOL's studio. and THERE! you can see how they play their solo. they play it around the 12ish fret area so dan u were right but when u play a long with the recored version like from the CD the 7-8 thing is the way to go. and i haven't tested the solo for the AOL ting cus i can't play it anymore or my computer will freeze on me (Windows '98) so yea. peace
October 13 2006, 11:22 pm by DanSumthing |
Hey, good find, Squirrel.
I was actually thinking about changing the solo to the 7th fret in my tab here, but after watching Billie Joe play the solo the way I tabbed it, I am definitely going to keep it the way it is.
October 14 2006, 03:41 pm by KeViNp |
YAY you're still around!
October 17 2006, 09:01 pm by glfrancisjr |

e|-----------------|
B|-----3-----3-----|
G|---0---0---------|
D|-5-------5-------|
A|-----------------|
E|-----------------|

u got the fingering right n all but thats how he actually played it. also check out the solo i posted for this song coz i saw u hadnt put it in your tab.

other than this great job.
December 31 2006, 10:25 pm by fozy14 |
awsome tab. i couldnt of done better myself. though i could of only done the intro lol. love the song, love to play it.

Hehe ur all ****ing haters cuz he's 100x better than you =) so don't be hatin'. But more to the point, awesome tab. It's 100% correct as far as I can see.
January 28 2007, 10:51 am by Zeppelin_31 |
It's pretty good, but it's difficult to change from one power chord to another. Is there an easier way of doing this?
January 28 2007, 12:19 pm by AlchoholicA |
Greendaygeek10, yeah he's awesome all he did was copy and paste from the Greenday website, which is written by some kid that isn't even in the band.
January 28 2007, 02:19 pm by Squirrel1993 |
alcoholicA: r u ****ing retarded. he did not copy it. if u look at greendayauthority.com (im assuming thats the site ur talking about) this looks NOTHING like it! u pple r retarded if u think he copied it
January 28 2007, 11:06 pm by DanSumthing |
The tab on greendayauthority isn't even close to my tab AlchoholicA.
And you're seriously a horrible musician if you play the intro the way you tabbed it above.
That's god-awful.
February 10 2007, 06:51 pm by AlchoholicA |
Yup same thing as the site, I win.. give me 100$
February 15 2007, 07:44 pm by DanSumthing |
Same thing as what site? You want to provide proof?
You will need to prove first that the tab you are looking at is exactly the same, and you will need to prove that the tab you are looking at was posted before 10/13/2004. That's when my tab went up.
I wish you great luck proving something that you are completely wrong about.
February 16 2007, 07:23 pm by brantheman |

Very Sweet tab... very sweet
February 25 2007, 02:02 pm by OneStruggle89 |
it's really good...but just one thing i think would make it easier...
in the intro and other parts where you have
G--0
D-5-
A---
E---
Those are harmonics and you don't have to play the 5 unless you just want to sweep it...otherwise they're the same
February 25 2007, 02:11 pm by johnnie13 |
sounds amazing!
March 11 2007, 11:45 pm by FRDesign |
Good Tab.

But Holy Crap, greenday songs are easy to play.
March 13 2007, 07:37 am by sharlut_1234 |
im not great on the guitar so i love playing green day songs (cuz they're easy). This tab is good and i can play it! well done dude you made the monkey dance!!! and its soooooooo NOT copied, just because they're both right. erm thats all i've got to say so keep up the kool tabs !!!

recomended to finger pluck it.....
it sounds better this way but it doesnt sound the same as the original version recorded by Green Day.
April 1 2007, 08:04 pm by Tan010 |
To all of the people in the comment box who have insulted Green Day or DanSumthing, o my god. Dan's tab is really good. He put work in and spent time on his tab. Congratulate him. It's not copied.

BTW Green Day is the best band on the planet, named so by Kerrang! rock awards. Bands like Metallica and such go to those awards so eat it!

G| |----5-5---5---5-|
D| |--5-------5-----|
A| |3-------3-------|

i think its more like this

dont get me wrong, yours is a good tab but you just missed that very distinctive d note on the 2nd string

for the last part of the solo you have:
Guitar2 (still w/distortion)
G
e| |3---------------|
B| |3---------------|
G| |0---------------|
D| |----------------|
A| |----------------|
E| |----------------|

i think it kinda sounds better like this: (ik they're the same notes)
Guitar2 (still w/distortion)
G
e| |----------------|
B| |8---------------|
G| |7-or-12---------|
D| |5----x----------|

Dude, great tab definitely worth 5*s, loved the way u included all the little details, im a big Green Day fan and i absolutely love this song, this tab is PERFECT.
July 26 2007, 01:47 am by s33ing gr33n |
ya the 3 and 5 part sounds really off. i agree with shelly_belly.
August 3 2007, 04:55 am by youngtalent92 |
u can play it so its sounds the same way but its much easier to play, why do u have to make it so hard, like the solo, go down and play it on the e and b strings and from there its really easy to do i on the acoustic guitar, and u have made some other parts not so good :P heh
-2   August 7 2007, 11:58 am by jman 092 |
no no no their is an easyer way to play the intro somthing like this . . .

solo awesome keep it up[man i can't wait to go try the solo with distotion
-2   October 13 2007, 01:22 pm by thedudemeister |
guys, the tab (even the solo) is tabbed up correctly, the only mistake, innacuracy whatever, is before the chorus in the picked section:

E----------------
B-----3------3-0-
D-----0-0----0---
G---0-------0----
A----------------
E-3-------2------

I believe u tabbed it as that when it should be:

E----------------
B-----3------3-0-
D-----0-0----2---
G---0-------0----
A----------------
E-3-------2------

this is how the section before the chorus goes, u can hear the difference
October 20 2007, 06:48 pm by Ngui94 |

-5   November 13 2007, 01:46 pm by scope013 |
ermm.. the solo is in the wrong place, and you have too many note there.. otherwise fairly good, most of the chord
suspensions are right, a few not the same as green day paly them. btw if you disagree with what im saying you are

'btw if you disagree with what im saying you are
disagreeing with GREEN DAY. some of the stuff you have in here is not

Tab books are generally ear transribed, so while
they may be accurate on the whole they are not always perfect.

The first part of the verses is actually like
this.

|-----|-----|
|-----3-----0-|-----3----
-0-|
|---0---0-----|---0---0--
---|
|-5-----5---|-4-
-----4---|
|-----|-----|

and so on.
Listen to the CD before you say
it's wrong, it sounds a lot better.

I love the live version that U2 and Green Day did of this song, with the brass section. Good Tab!! The solo is layed on
the B and G strings when Billie does it live.

+1   January 30 2008, 04:43 pm by Striken |
great tabbing!!! i love it

just a few questions tho. when u write w/ distortion on top of the repeat two bars of intro, do u mean to say just the intro is distorted or that the whole section is distorted all the way until the acoustic intro?

and also when u say repeat chorus, is the ending:
3-3-3-3-5-5-5-5
3-3-3-3-5-5-5-5
3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2

or just
3-3-3-3-5-5-5-5
3-3-3-3-5-5-5-5
3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3

sorry im kinda new a guitar :S

like everyone else you fail to realize that on a well tuned guitar(standard) a note played on the fifth fret is the same as a the next string up played open except g
January 30 2009, 12:47 pm by Koterbro |
Best tab for this song ever! But you can hear at the end of the song, that there's a part that goes something like this, and it's pretty slow:

e|-----10----10----10----
B|--8-----8------8-----8~
G|-----------------------
D|-----------------------
A|-----------------------
E|-----------------------

And then there's the organ at the end, which goes sort of like this (I think):

e|------------------------------
B|-17~-----17--16---------------
G|-17~-----17--17---------------
D|-17~-----17--17-----17~-------
A|-15~-----15--15-----17~-------
E|--------------------15~-------

So yeah, it's sort of like the chords in the chorus, but up one octave. I'm also pretty sure there's a delay on both of those parts. And there's also a first chord I didn't show, because it is ridiculously high, and my guitar only has 22 frets, so I'm not sure.

But anyways, fantastic tab. Best on Ultimate-Guitar.

dan, u rock this tab is great 5 ***** itz awesome!

sound just like album
March 7 2009, 12:58 pm by thosesixguys |
ella thats the exact same thing. all you're doing by doing that is making it slightly more difficult to fingerpick. Still easy but its dumb.
March 10 2009, 07:56 am by kossbelli |
hey guys sorry for stupid question but in intro 5 0 3 5 0 3. it should be played 5-d 0-u 3-d 5-u 0-d 3-u?1

I think for the end of the solo, instead of:

{e| |----------------|----------------|----------------|
{B| |1515151515151515|1515151515151515|1515151515151515|
{G| |1212121212121212|1111111111111111|1212121212121212|
{D| |----------------|----------------|----------------|
{A| |----------------|----------------|----------------|
{E| |----------------|----------------|----------------|

{e| |----------------|
{B| |1515151515151515|
{G| |1111111111111111|
{D| |----------------|
{A| |----------------|
{E| |----------------|

I think it should be:

{e| |----------------|----------------|----------------|
{B| |----------------|----------------|----------------|
{G| |1212121212121212|1111111111111111|1212121212121212|
{D| |1212121212121212|1212121212121212|1212121212121212|
{A| |----------------|----------------|----------------|
{E| |----------------|----------------|----------------|

{e| |----------------|
{B| |----------------|
{G| |1111111111111111|
{D| |1212121212121212|
{A| |----------------|
{E| |----------------|

Because in the song, the D note, or in this case, the 15th fret on the 2nd string, is lower than the G and F#, or the 12th and 11th frets on the 3rd string. So the D note is lower.

Other than that it's an awesome tab.

MAN THIS TAB IS AWESOME!!!
July 10 2010, 09:01 pm by Shiriyu |
Sounds accurate and awesome :) However, I'm curious as to why you're naming the Em chord as E5? I suppose it doesn't matter but you do that with the Dsus 2 in which you name it D5. I'm just curious if that's an alternate name to them becuase those two are the Dsus 2 and Em chords :) But great tab thanks!

Its supposed to give it a different sound, if you play on the 5th fret then on the open, they are the same note but give off a different quality. This is how it's supposed to be played.
