Holiday
Tabbed by: SilentWolf127
Band: Green Day
Song: Holiday
Album: American Idiot
Track Number: 3

This is Green Day's, political bashing song, it's very simple to play. When they recorded
song they used two amps at the same time and that's what gives the intro the high pitch
sound, because they were set for different tones, thus making it impossible to make it
sound right without hooking up two amps. You'll have to listen for the timing yourself.
Well have fun.

Tab Notation:
X - Muted String (Meant as a fill to allow power chord change)
/ - Slide Up (Slide fret hand up from lower notes to higher)
\ - Slide Down (Slide fret hand down from higher notes to lower)
~ - Let Ring (Let the notes ring [Hold the notes] for a second)
(8) - Ghost Note (Don't strum but don't let previous notes ring)

Tuning:Standard

About the artist behind Holiday:

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".
