Green Day,When I Come Around (100% correct).
 Tabbed by Stuart MacDonald,coolguywifguitar@hotmail.com.

Artist: Green Day
Song: When I Come Around
Tabber: Stuart MacDonald (coolguywifguitar)

This tab is 100% correct I am sure, it sounds great!!

Tune your guitar down half a step like all green day songs 

(Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb)

This song uses the following power chords :

G5      D5      E5      C5      A5

-       -       -       -       -
-       -       -       -       -
-       7       9       5       -
5       7       9       5       7
5       5       7       3       7
3       -       -       -       5

Now, this is a really easy song, the solo is the only slightly difficult bit
It's easy enough to master

1 ---3-------5--------3-----5---3----------------
2 -----3---3---3---3---3----------3--------------
3 -------4--------0-------0-----------0----------
4 -----------------------------------------------
5 -----------------------------------------------
6 -----------------------------------------------

1 --3---5--5--3----------------------------------
2 ----3----------3----------8--------------------
3 ------------------0---7/9---9---5--------------
4 ----------------------------------5------------
5 ----------------------------------3------------
6 -----------------------------------------------

OK now here is the layout of the song:

Verse: G5x3 D5x3 E5x2 C5x1
Chorus : A5x8 G5x8 A5x8 G5x1

Now this is the number of times you play each section:

Verse x 1
Verse x 2
Verse x 8 (vocals start here)
Chorus x 1
Verse x 2
Verse x 8 (vocals again)
Chorus x 1
Verse x 2
Verse x 2 (play solo over it on a 2nd guitar)
Chorus x 1
Verse x 4
