Wake me up when September ends. Green Day
Bass Tab
Tabbed by squiddie
Email:squiddie_t@hotmail.com

Tuning: standard (E,A,D,G)

This song is very simple and consists of 3 or 4 main riffs. It looks daunting,
but is very easy. 
The bass doesn't come in until halfway through, but I've tabbed it from the beginning.

The part for bass during the guitar solo, at the end you should play on the fith fret on the A string (Note D) not on the G string, my bad!

There's no bass until about 1:45, what are you smoking?

There is nothing wrong with adding a bass line to the beginning of the song just play the note on beat one and hold until the next chord change. The key here is to use as few notes as possible.
