Time of your Life – Green Day

Okay, I saw the other file, made a few changes so it’d be perfect. The way the
other guy had it was a little off, but sounded fine if you played it on your own.
But played along with the video it was wrong. So, here’s the fix. I just fixed all
his little oopses. But, thanks go out to David Hill, the author of the original tab.
I couldn’t have figured this out without his tab first. E-mail me if you have any
questions, comments, or wads of money for me.

Tab 1 & Intro

Verse: (play each line twice, then go to chorus)

G C9 Dsus4
|——-3————–3————–3————3——| then it repeats, so it almost
|———-3————-3————–3————3—-| sounds like it goes C9, Dsus4,
|————-0————0————–0—–2——2–| Gmodal. So, after the end of the
|—0————–0————–2———–0———–| Dsus4 bit, go straight to the G
|——————————3————————–| bass note.

Em Dsus4 C9 G
|——3————3————-3————3———-| The above line gets played
|——–3————3————-3————3——–| twice, then this twice, and that’s
|———-0—–2——2————-0————0——| the verse. Then the line after
|—2———-0—————2————0————-| that is the chorus. Not that
|—————————-3—————————-| complex, but this IS Green Day,
|-0—————————————3—————| after all.

Em G Em G

Em Dsus4
|——3———3——| Okay, now, it’s important that you go straight back into the
|——–3———3—-| opening G of the verse, because the Dsus4 sort of leaves you
|———-0———2–| hanging there. Then play the first half of the verse once
|—2———-0——–| through, then start it all over again.
