(Guitar 2 (Jason White) is optional.Live Jason plays the solo,I said 
Guitar 1(Billie Joe) plays the solo so if he/she is playing by themselves
they wouldnt get confused.To hear this song(live) besides going to one of 
their concerts is to watch Sessions @ AOL airing on fuse or YAHOO! Launch.
You can also play the CD version with this tab,just dont play the interludes
& two chorus' after it..I've been to a couple of Green Day shows 
& this looks like what they play.You could use the CD to get the rythm for 
this song.For all the riffs use downstrokes & upstrokes.I went to a Green 
Day concert and noticed after the interlude he plays more chorus' then I 
put.They play more chorus' because BJ talks to the crowd.This is what they 
play when they don't talk.I even wrote where Mike sings along.When playing
the verse' I labeled where to sing when playing what chord.This tab is 
off of YAHOO! Launch.The first riff with the "X's" is optional.Billie Joe
does not use pedals.Jason does not use pedals.)

About the artist behind American Idiot Live:

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".
