Whatsername
Tabbed By Donkey Fly

I have been working on this tab since late november when i first heard the song.....it
should be perfect , i figured out that the speed is exactly 120 beats...enjoy it....the
number a chord indicates the fret number you play it on.....experienced guitarist should
know how to play these chords , yes they are power chords...



this is my first tab

All guitars in drop D tuning

Speed: 120

Time:
4/4

Words By Billie Joe......Music By Green Day
