86
(Insomniac, 1995)

I worked this out and it seems to one of the most simple
Green Day songs I've learnt so far. Easy to get the hang of.

As with almost all old GD, the guitars are tuned a fret down
on this song, so it actually sounds lower than written here, but
of course it sounds fine in standard tuning as the intervals are
exactly the same.

Special tab notation:

PICKScr*pE = scr*pe the side of the pick along the strings
             to make a cool scr*pey noise. 
P.M.       = palm-muting = mute the played strings with the palm/side
             of your hand near the bridge. 

INTRO:

Tre starts off the song, then Billie comes in with a quick pickscr*pe up:

Purchase your ticket
And quickly take the last train out of town
