My Generation
as covered by Green Day

This starts in the key of F# minor, and I've got as much information here as
possible. The only thing missing is that darn bass solo in the solo breaks.

F# E F# E x2

begin Verse:
F# (stop)                  F#                     E    
Well, people try to put us down. (Talkin' bout my generation.)

F# (stop)                   F#              E
Just because we get around. (Talkin' bout my generation.)

F# (stop)                     F#                     E
The things they do look awful cold. (Talkin' bout my generation.)

F# (stop)                       F#              E
I hope I die before I get old. (Talkin' bout my generation.)

F# E F# E x2
My generation.

Verse 2 (same chords):

Why don't you all just fade away? (Talkin' bout my generation.)
And don't try to dig what we all say. (Talkin' bout my generation.)
I'm not trying to cause a big sensation. (Talkin' bout my generation.)
I'm just talkin' bout my generation. (Talkin' bout my generation.)



F# E F# E F# (stop)

E: |-----------------------------|
B: |----7-7----7-7---------------|
G: |-/6-----/6-----4-4h6p4-------|
D: |-----------------------4-7~~-|
A: |-----------------------------|
E: |-----------------------------|

F# E F# E F# (stop)
Bass solo...

F# E F# E F# (stop)
Drum solo

F# E F# E F# (stop)
*crash* Man, you can fuck that shit!

F# E F# E x2

Repeat Verse 2 with key change G#, F#, G# with same lyrics.

Chorus with chords G#, F#, G#.

Then key change to Bb (chords: Bb, G#) over solo:

E: |--------------------------|
B: |-4------4------4------4---|
G: |-6b8----6b8----6b8----6b8-|
then you just use the Bb minor pentatonic scale...Billie goes to fast for
me to tab out the entire solo, but there are a could main themes, the above
bend being one, and

E: |-----6-9b-9b-9b-|
B: |-6-9------------|
G: |----------------|

being another. The solo however, is only in Bb minor pent. at the 6th fret
    6th  7   8   9
E: |-x-|---|---|-x-|
B: |-x-|---|---|-x-|
G: |-x-|---|-x-|---|
D: |-x-|---|-x-|---|
A: |-x-|---|-x-|---|
E: |-x-|---|---|-x-|

Just go wild; do a lot of pulling, hammering and bending.

Then end in a glorious haze of feedback and spasticness...or just kinda
fizzle out like on the record.

About the artist behind My Generation:

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".
