No One Knows: GREEN DAY (Kerplunk LP)

________________________________
I wrestled with learning this song for some time before I eventually got
it sounding pretty close (if not exact) to how the song on the album sounds.
The part in tabs here is JUST THE INTRO.  Fear not, however; the entire
song uses this same piece.  The part that is _NOT_ in "repeat" bars at the
beginning of the transcription is actually repeated twice during the song.
The rest of the transcription (most of which IS in "repeat" bars) is played
just as shown.  At the very end of this transcription is the short "ending"
of the entire song, as I play it.

This is a damn hard song to learn, and the tab is flawless. Nice Job.

This song won best bass performance by greenday last year (or two years ago, not sure).
