Green Day - 2000 Light Years Away
Album: Kerplunk

tabbed by edbert
E-Mail: mac3214@comcast.net

An utter classic by Green Day in the early years (which is much better than 
their american idiot crap), easy to play too.


Tuning: although it can be played in standard, it's best to
	tune down 1/2 step

() - represents less dominant notes
pm - palm mute
x - scratched/not played

chord reference:
Bb- x244xx
G-  466xxx
F-  244xxx
Eb- 022xxx
* the rhythm is just Bb to G to F

so in the solo ther's a b between two numbers Why?
and American Idiot is not crap it's just harder apparently I mean you can't really say this song is complex of course I admit I like it when the song is mostly if not all power chords

I wouldn't say American Idiot is crap, it's not as good as the good old songs, but American Idiot is just more modern punk, the good old punk wouldn't last now-a-days unfortunatly.
But no matter what Green Day ROCKS!
