             Know Your Enemy Solo (Live Version) - Green Day
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: AvengeTheHero
Email: medalofhonor82nd@sbcglobal.net

I've heard many different live versions of the solo for this song done by
Billie Joe, this version happens to be the one Green Day performed live at
the MTV Japan VMA's. How he plays the solo hasn't changed much since then, 
excluding a few extra bends here and there. 

This is my first ever tab, but feel free to criticize and revise this for
your own personal usage. Hopefully it can be a starting place for those
looking to fine tune the solo themselves.

Here's a link to the video I used to learn the solo:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2FIn11x4J0

Tuning: Standard (eBGDAE)

--------------------------------
First half of solo (Jason White)
--------------------------------

e|-7--7--7-----7--7-----------7-----7--11--7-------------------------------| 
B|----------7--------7--7--7-----7------------7~---------------------------| 
G|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 

e|-7--7--7-----7--7--7-----9--9-----9--9-----9-----------------------------| 
B|----------7-----------7--------7--------7-----7--------------------------| 
G|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 

(Play all of that 2 times)

--------------------------------
Second half of solo (Billie Joe)
--------------------------------

Listen carefully to this part of the song to hear how long Billie holds the
notes and to get the timing down. 
       
(I've inserted vibrato notes to help guide you)

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
G|-9~--9~--9--8--8---------------------------------------------------------| 
D|------------------9~--9--9~--9--9--9~------------------------------------| 
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
B|------------------------7--7--------7--7--------7------------------------| 
G|-9~--9~--9--8--8--9^11--------9^11--------9^11---------------------------| 
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
B|-10^11--10^11--10^11--10--7--------7--7--------7--7----------------------| 
G|-----------------------------9^11--------9^11--------9\3~~---------------| 
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 

On the final 9\3 slide note, as soon as you slide to the third fret, strum
the 3 again so that it rings out.

That's about it! Have fun playing and don't hesitate to add little bits of
your own flair to the solo.

Great tab but i find it easier to play the 2nd bit of billies solo like this.
