                             Letterbomb - Green Day(Broadway)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:Pie Borderie

INFO-This version is the one from "American Idiot: The Original Broadway Cast Recording" since
I couldn't find a tab of it anywhere else. The 997 power chord on the BOTTOM 3 strings can also
be played as 442 on the 3rd 4th and 5th strings respectively. Sometimes this way is more convenient. 

ANECDOTES-This is an interesting one from the album most of the songs on here are either the same as 
the original (in terms of song key and notes played, not necessarily instrument wise.) or
they, in great broadway fashion, move all the notes up one or two frets. For example 
"Too Much Too Soon" starts 1 fret higher than the original then moves up another 2 frets and 
ends on the original fretting. This one however as far as I can tell is quite different 

ENJOY!
