Green Day tabs

When I Come Around guitar tab

When I Come around- Green Day

A great chord riff from Billie Joe Armstrong (lead singer and guitarist). This is the 
correct version so there shouldn’t be any worries at all. 

All the lead is in BOLD (TabCrawler ed. note: There is no bold now that 
I converted this tab to text from wordpad) and the rhythm is just normal. 
I’ve also added the tabbed version of the chords for people who are crap 
at remembering chords (e.g. me). Any probs email me at: wrangerliam@hotmail.com
