                       21st Century Breakdown-Green Day
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by:Stjimmy34
Tuning:Standard

Sorry if any of this is confusing. It was hard to put the second guitar
in there. I think this song is supposed to be a half-step down, so this is what it would 
like without retuning your guitar.
