      American Idiot (Live) - Green Day
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Tabbed by: Country Bass
 E-mail: aaron.white8@education.nsw.gov.au

 Track: 1
 Album: Bullet In A Bible

 I've tabbed it out for the bullet in a bible album, 
 The only real difference between the live and studio version is 
 Billie extends the guitar solo and gets the crowd pumped during the bridge
 The studio version is the exact same except the bridge the bass only plays the final 4th fret A

 Tuning: Standard

Intro

 Guitar starts the song with muted strumming followed by the main riff once, then 
the bass comes in
