So I would like to learn this song [its to long to post it all but here is some].. but i'm not to farmiliar with tabs.
If you could just explain the first few verses, like how to read them that would be great!
thanks!


Song: Wake Me Up When September Ends
Artist: Green Day
Album: American Idiot
Tabbed by: Dan Benz (DanSumthing@wi.rr.com)

This is a great song from an incredible album. I heard the intro to this
and I had to tab the whole thing. Easily my best tab, it took me a long
time because I wanted to get every note right.

For the acoustic verse and bridge, I tabbed each note out the way it's
played on the album, but if you'd rather just play the chords, they're
written above the tablature. See below for chord fingerings.

C - |x32010| Em - |022000|
Cm - |x35543| Bm - |x24432|
G - |3x0033| D - |xx0232|
G/Gb - |200033|

In Verse 1, playing the bar chord version of the ||
C chord makes it much easier to transition to ||
the Cm chord that follows it. ||
