Verse 1

The bass comes in at 0.13 seconds and plays this:

G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------|
A--8-8--4-4-------6-6----8-8--4-4-------6-6----------------------|
E------------4-4-------------------4-4---------------------------|

After the third time it goes to 3 instead of 6, notice it below:

G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------|
A--8-8--4-4-------6-6----8-8--4-4-------3-3----------------------|
E------------4-4-------------------4-4---------------------------|

G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------|
A--8-8--4-4-------6-6--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3---------------------------|
E------------4-4-------------------------------------------------|

G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------|
A--8-8--4-4-------6-6----8-8--4-4-------3-3----------------------|
E------------4-4-------------------4-4---------------------------|

G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------|
A--8-8--4-4-------6-6--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3---------------------------|
E------------4-4-------------------------------------------------|

Goes into chorus at 1.07:

G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------|
A-----------4-4-4-4-----------6-6-6-6----------------------------|
E--1-1-1-1-----------4-4-4-4-------------------------------------|


G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------|
A-----------4-4-4-4-----------3-3-3-3-3--------------------------|
E--1-1-1-1-----------4-4-4-4-------------------------------------|

Verse 2 starts at 1.07 with:

G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------|
A--8-8--4-4-------6-6----8-8--4-4-------3-3----------------------|
E------------4-4-------------------4-4---------------------------|

G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------|
A--8-8--4-4-------6-6--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3---------------------------|
E------------4-4-------------------------------------------------|

G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------|
A--8-8--4-4-------6-6----8-8--4-4-------3-3----------------------|
E------------4-4-------------------4-4---------------------------|

G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------|
A--8-8--4-4-------6-6--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3---------------------------|
E------------4-4-------------------------------------------------|

Goes into chorus again at 1.33:

G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------|
A-----------4-4-4-4-----------6-6-6-6----------------------------|
E--1-1-1-1-----------4-4-4-4-------------------------------------|


G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------|
A-----------4-4-4-4-----------3-3-3-3-3--------------------------|
E--1-1-1-1-----------4-4-4-4-------------------------------------|

Straight after the chorus you get a tune which is the same as the bass solo in it but it 
played with guitar, my friend plays it different to me but i perfer my version, if you 
to the song you can hear that Mike misses out the 3 when he does it the second time, its
not just the bass that misses it out, the guitar does aswel. This is played at 1.48:

G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D--------------------1-----------------------1-------------------|
A----------------4-3---3-----------------4-3---------------------|
E--1-1--3-4-4-4---------------1--3-4-4-4-------------------------|

G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D--------------------1-----------------------1-------------------|
A----------------4-3---3-----------------4-3---3-----------------|
E--1-1--3-4-4-4---------------1--3-4-4-4-------------------------|

Whilst the solo is playing the bass is just playing the chorus and once the solo is 
you can hear that the 3rd fret is being played over and over again. This is played at 2.01:

G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------|
A-----------4-4-4-4-----------6-6-6-6----------------------------|
E--1-1-1-1-----------4-4-4-4-------------------------------------|


G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------|
A-----------4-4-4-4-----------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3----|
E--1-1-1-1-----------4-4-4-4-------------------------------------|

This is the bass solo, whilst this is going on, Tre Cool has the bass drum going on a 
beat and this solo is played until it comes to Billie Joe singing 'Just coz, Just coz 
we're outlaws yea', also notice that Mike plays an extra couple of 3's the second time
he does the bass pattern. This is played at 2.17:

G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D---------------------1-----------------------1---3--------------|
A----------------4-3-----3----------------4-3---3---3------------|
E--1-1--3-4-4-4---------------1--3-4-4-4-------------------------|

G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D---------------------1-----------------------1------------------|
A----------------4-3-----3----------------4-3---3----------------|
E--1-1--3-4-4-4---------------1--3-4-4-4-------------------------|  x3

At the end of this do the third fret 16 times. This is at 2.57:

G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------|
A--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-----------------------------|
E----------------------------------------------------------------|

It then goes back into the chorus at 3.03:

G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------|
A-----------4-4-4-4-----------6-6-6-6----------------------------|
E--1-1-1-1-----------4-4-4-4-------------------------------------|


G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------|
A-----------4-4-4-4-----------3-3-3-3-3--------------------------|
E--1-1-1-1-----------4-4-4-4-------------------------------------|

After that it does the chorus again but caries the third fret like the end of the bass 
This is at 2.28 and Billie Joe is singing 'Liveeeeeesss', he playes the third fret 16 times:

G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------|
A--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-------------------------------|
E----------------------------------------------------------------|

Then, whilst Billie Joe is holding the really long note this is played in the background:

G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------|
A--8-8--4-4-------6-6----8-8--4-4-------3-3----------------------|
E------------4-4-------------------4-4---------------------------|

G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------1---3-------------------------|
A--8-8--4-4-------6-6----8-8--4-4----3---------------------------|
E------------4-4-------------------------1-----------------------|
