You won't BELIEVE how long it took me to figure out that damn baseline on 
this regular guitar :) but it's here now... all of it except for those high 
parts he plays at the end i've only partially figured those out.

"Longview" by Greenday

First thing before i give the TAB, you must know the way the power chords 
are played in this song. The chords that you should play in this way i'll 
just make a "+" sign after them.

A+                G+                D+

G -------------   G -------------   G --7--5--7--5-
D --7--5--7--5-   D --5--3--5--3-   D --7--5--7--5-
A --7--5--7--5-   A --5--3--5--3-   A --5--5--5--5-
E --5--5--5--5-   E --3--3--3--3-   E -------------

Other chords in this song.

D       C

G -7-   G -5-
D -7-   D -5-
A -5-   A -3-
E ---   E ---

This is the first bassline, it's usually played while Billy Joe sings.

D --------------------------------------------------- L
G ----7-----------------------7----------10-9-7------ O
A ------10-9------10-9---7------10-9*-----------10-9- O
E -10--------10-8------8---10---------10------------- P

When moving into the chorus, right after playing the note which i've put a 
star after (9th fret on the A string) play the C chord for 4 beats, then 
move into the chorus:

A+ A+ G+ D+ A+ A+ G+ D+ A+ A+ G+ D+ A+ A+
Followed by strumming a regular G chord once.

Then play the second bassline, usually played twice before going into the 
first bassline.

D ----7--------7--------------- L
G ---------7-9---9-10-9-7------ O
A ------------------------10-9- O
E -10---10--------------------- P

At the chorus when they start to sing "Where is the motivation..." after 
playing the chorus chords play

D C D C D C D C (Re-play chorus chords, they will start around when Billy
                 Joe sings the word "inspiration")

As for the end where while the bassline is being played there are some high 
notes being played, all i can figure out is what note it matches on the 
HIGH e string:

e -2-3-3-0---2-3-5-10- (LOOP)

If you want the words... buy the CD :)
NO if you want them posted, i can do that... not right now though i'm tired
