========================

*Important!* This is my own interpretation
of the song, and is not ripped off from a 
music book etc.

Artist/Group :  Green Day
Title :         Castaway

I don't know whether this will be a single, but it
should be. It's got a really good feeling to it.

Tuning:- Regular;

e|----|     / slide into
B|----|     s slide from note to next
G|----|     [] Notes in brackets are palm muted
D|----|     x b y bend note x upto note y
A|----|     x r y release note x to note y 
E|----|     x p y play note x and pull off to play note y
            

===Intro===

Nice, crunchy overdriven guitar

   B5        G#5       E5        B5
e|-------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------|
D|-9-9-9-9---6-6-6-6---2-2-2-2---9-9-9-9-----------| X 4

E|-7-7-7-7---4-4-4-4---0-0-0-0---7-7-7-7-----------|

===Verse===

Guitar is exactly the same as in the intro, but I've
put it here so you can see how the words fit. (It's not
hard, but newer players will benefit) I've put in the first
chord to be played, but play it the same as the intro.


I'm on a sentimental journey into sight and sound
   B5          G#5           E5             B5
e|-------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------|
D|-9-----------6-------------2--------------9------|
A|-9-----------6-------------2--------------9------|
E|-7-----------4-------------0--------------7------|

Of no return and no looking back or down
   B5   G#5      E5                 B5
e|-------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------|
D|-9----6--------2------------------9--------------|
A|-9----6--------2------------------9--------------|
E|-7----4--------0------------------7--------------|

 A conscientious objector to the war that's in my mind
   B5            G#5             E5               B5
e|-------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------|
D|-9-------------6---------------2----------------9|
A|-9-------------6---------------2----------------9|
E|-7-------------4---------------0----------------7|

   Leaving in the lurch and I'm taking back what's mine.
      B5          G#5           E5                B5
e|-------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------|
D|-9--------------6-------------2-----------------9|
A|-9--------------6-------------2-----------------9|
E|-7--------------4-------------0-----------------7|

===Bridge===

A nice little bit to take us into the chorus. Watch
out for the B5/Bb5 timing. Apart from that, a piece
of pervervial.

I'm on a mission into destination       unknown
   E5                                   B5     Bb5 B5
e|---------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------|

D|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2------9-9-9--8---9-|
A|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2------9-9-9--8---9-|
E|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0------7-7-7--6---7-|

   B5      Bb5 B5  F#5
e|--------------------|
B|--------------------|
G|--------------------|
D|-9-9-9---8---9---4--|
A|-9-9-9---8---9---4--|
E|-7-7-7---6---7---2--|

 An expedition onto desolation      road (where I'm a...)
   E5                               F#5
e|-------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------|
D|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2--4--------------|
A|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2--4--------------|
E|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--2--------------|
                                    let ring...


===Chorus===

The guitar is the same as the verse and intro, except 
for the end bit.

   Casta  way - going at it alone
   B5     G#5   E5          B5
e|-------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------|
D|-9------6-----2-----------9----------------------|
A|-9------6-----2-----------9----------------------|
E|-7------4-----0-----------7----------------------|


   Casta  way - now I'm on my own
e|-------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------|
D|-9------6-----2-------------9--------------------|
A|-9------6-----2-------------9--------------------|
E|-7------4-----0-------------7--------------------|

Repeat those two bits again....then........

   Lost and found, trouble bound castaway.

e|--------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------|
D|-2---------------4--------------|
A|-2---------------4--------------|
E|-0---------------2--------------|
   let ring...     let ring...

As "castaway" is said, play the verse sequence X2.

===Verse 2===

Same as verse 1, but new lyrics.

I'm riding on the night train and driving stolen cars
testing my nerves out on the boulevards
Spontaneous combustion on the corners of my mind
leaving in the lurch and I'm taking back what's mine.

===Bridge===

Do the bridge again.

===Chorus===

Do the chorus again.

===Solo===

This is quite hard to get right, but just get the notes out.
They all fit in well with the chords.

e|-------------------------------------------------------|
B|-7-------7--7------7--7-10p7-7-10p7-7-10p7-7-10p7-9b11-|
G|---11r9-------9b11-------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------|

===Verse 3===
Bass plays on it's own through the next verse

===Bridge===

Guitar joins back in. Normal bridge.

===Chorus===

The chorus plays though a few times, and that's it.

Here's an alternate, just slightly trickier version of the
verse and chorus that may be played or may not. I can't quite
make out. Anyway, I play it like this:


   B5        G#5       E5        B5      Bb5
e|-------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------|
D|-9-9-9-9---6-6-6-6---2-2-2-2---9-9-9-9-8---------| X 4
A|-9-9-9-9---6-6-6-6---2-2-2-2---9-9-9-9-8---------|
E|-7-7-7-7---4-4-4-4---0-0-0-0---7-7-7-7-6---------|

It's just a little harder to sneak that little Bb5 before going
round again. If you can, play that as it just makes it a little 
less boring. That's all!

==================================================
The Ricky Shelton (www.ricxworld.co.uk) Tab Appeal
==================================================

I'm begging you, if you're thinking of doing a tab, don't post
it unless it's complete. Poor tabs piss everyone off, and they
usually contain the following:-

*No words
*Very vague description of playing tips (E.G "The song's tuned 
                               down, but I don't know how much)
*No chord names
*Mistakes (obviously not always avoidable)
*Bits missing (like the chorus, solo's, you know the major bits 
                                                   of the song)

If you have the e-mail address of someone who does a real poor tab, 
please just give them a polite word of advice. If they give you gyp, 
send 'em to me!
Seriously though, there's nothing more annoying that poor tabs.

You like the tab? Did a gig with it? Don't like the tab? Tell me!
I want to know what you guys are getting up to? Where ya from?
What music d'ya like? Just want tochat? I use Msn Messenger, so if 
ya want to chat about anything, drop us a line!

Rock on you crazy cats!
