uh... yes dude 6 gtrs... yes ...
im looking at the BACKLINE BLUEPRINT for Green Day on their new album and when they play live.. guess what I see... 6 guitars!! guess what else I see.. the whole system they use on their live shows so when I say 6 guitars its not cuz I want to seem cool I can put a tab on here with 6 guitar parts..

and also.. YOU DONT HAVE TO PLAY IT WITH 6 GTRS IF YOU DONT WANT TO.. thats how GREEN DAY PLAYS IT..
