                    Knowledge - Green Day (Operation Ivy)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Mike Cassidy 
Email: rageandlove04@yahoo.com

Tuning: EADGBe (live it's played ½ step down)

Pretty simple 3 chord rocker, just listen to the song for the strumming 
pattern, I'm too lazy to tab it out.  Solo's a basic D blues scale type 
thing, I know it's not 100% accurate, I havn't really listened to the song 
closely.  I've tabbed out the basic bass line as well, but I'm not a bass 
player, so that's pretty rough too.  Feel free to email 
comments/corrections/tab requests/etc to me.  Enjoy!
