	Ok I think this looks a bit confusing but I really can’t be bothered to put it any differently. I pretty sure it’s right and the strumming should be how I play it but I’m still finding it a bit difficult to put down what I play. Please rate and for another tab by me check out Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life) and homecoming, also by Green Day. More tabs to come your way. See ya.
