16 â€" Green Day

Tabbed by: Thedboy

Tuning: Down a quarter of a step

| h  hammer-on

Intro/Verse
This is a brilliant riff, but is really tricky to pull off. No-one had tabbed it quite
on this site, but I think this version is pretty correct. Play around with it.

Throughout the intro and verse, there are two versions of the same riff, one version is
muted the other isn’t and it sounds slightly different

palm muted version

G-44-444-22-222-1-----4~-----------------------------------------------------------|
D-44-444-22-222-2-----4~-----------------------------------------------------------|
A-22-222-00-000-2-----2~-----------------------------------------------------------|

non-pm version

D-4~-4~-22-222-222-4~-------------------------------------------------------|
A-2~-2~-00-000-222-2~-------------------------------------------------------|
E--------------000----------------------------------------------------------|

for the whole intro, you pm on the first time, but the next three times you play the non-pm
version.

The verse has the same riff played 8 times, you play with the pm on the 1st, 3rd, 5th
7th time and you play the non pm version on the 2nd, 4th, 6th and 8th time.

Chorus-nice and simple!!

Interlude

This is quite difficult to figure out. I think there are two guitars here, one plays the 
and the other plays this quietly,but I think this is correct.

Outro:
just play this once:

It’s a tricky little song with palm muting and stuff at different stages and so you need
fiddle around with the riffs to get it right. Have fun playing a great song.

verse 1 x8 (pm only on 1st, 3rd 5th and 7th time)
Chorus x4

Lyrics
Verse 1:
Every night I dream the same dream
Of getting older all the time
I ask you now, what does this mean?
Are these problems just in my mind?
Things are easy when you're a child
But now these pressures have dropped on my head
The length I've gone are just long miles
Would they be shorter if I were dead

Chorus:
Every time I look in my past
I always wish I was there
I wish my youth would forever last
Why are these times so unfair

Verse 2:
Look at my friends and see what they've done
Ask myself why they had to change
I like them better when they were young
Now all these times are rearranged
I look down and stand there and cry
Nothing ever will be the same
The sun is rising, now I ask why?
The clouds now fall and here comes the rain

About the artist behind 16:

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".
