Yes, these are guitar tabs, but why not play the opening bass line?

~ = ring				SNARE
G|-----6~~~~~6~~~~~6~~~~~6~~~~~~6~~~~~6~~~~~6-|
D|-4-4--------------------6-4-6---------------|	Then the guitar comes in...
A|-------4-4----------------------4-4---------|
E|-------------4-4---6-6----------------4-4---|
						
And these are the power chords we shall use:
   	B  	C#     	F#    	G#	C#minor	       G#minor
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

And now he's gone and all they say,
F#		     G#			F#...C#.G#.

F#	     G#
But now I see I'm mortal too,
F#          C#	     G#

Cuz he lived his life like I live mine.
F#		G#
If you could see inside my head,
F#      C#      G#
Then you'd start to understand,
F#		G#	 F#	C#.G#.
The things I value in my heart.

CHORUS:

SOLO:
(Note: chord picking/strumming not shown)
(There are lots of neat ways to just improvise on this too)
*?*I think he throws either of these () in there in place of one less strum occasionally
(If that made sense)

Gotta make a plan,	x1
Gotta do what's right,

Can't run around in circles,	x1
If you wanna build a life,

But I don't wanna make a plan,  x1
For a day far away,

While I'm young and while I'm able,
All I wanna do is...

About the artist behind J A R Tab:

Green Day is an American punk trio formed in 1987.[1] The band has consisted of Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals, guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass guitar, vocals), and Tré Cool (drums, percussion) for the majority of its existence.

Green Day was originally part of the punk rock scene at 924 Gilman Street in Berkeley, California. Its early releases for independent record label Lookout! Records earned them a grassroots fanbase, some of whom felt alienated when the band signed to a major label.[2] Nevertheless, its major label debut Dookie (1994) became a breakout success and eventually sold over 10 million copies in the U.S. alone, and 15 million copies sold worldwide.[3] As a result, Green Day was widely credited, alongside fellow California punk bands The Offspring and Rancid, with reviving mainstream interest in and popularizing punk rock in the United States.[4][5] Green Day's three follow-up albums, Insomniac, Nimrod and Warning did not achieve the massive success of Dookie, but they were still successful, reaching double platinum and gold status respectively.[6] Green Day's 2004 rock opera American Idiot reignited the band's popularity with a younger generation, selling five million copies in the U.S.[7]

The band has sold over 65 million records worldwide,[8] including 22 million in the United States alone.[9] They also have three Grammy Awards, Best Alternative Album for Dookie, Best Rock Album for American Idiot, and Record of the Year for "Boulevard of Broken Dreams".
