Author
Artist: Green Day
Song: Brain Stew
Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)
Tabbed By: InertZero0 (inertzero0@earthlink.net)

For the most part this song is one riff played over and over again, just in different forms.
I'll tab it for you anyway, because I could use to get some more tabs here.:) 
ANd If you can't figure out how to play the song after reading this tab along with listening
to the song, you must have been dropped on your head as a baby, many times.

This tab is WRONG.
The tuning is Eb and the actual riff is:

the tabber was probably dropped on his head as a baby.

if you tune to Eb you play
