                             Nuclear Family - Green Day
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: iScottie
Tuning: Standard

Track: 1
Album: ¡Uno!


Important:
The Intro, Verse, and Chorus are 100% accurate for this song. I have watched
numerous live videos to determine how Billie Joe Armstrong plays it and I eventually
figured it out. However, I am not 100% sure on the Solo, the Guitar 2 riffs during
the last Verse, or the Guitar 2 during the Outro, but it honestly sounds accurate to me.
