Americana Chords

   
The Offspring - "Americana"
Track 12 on the album "Americana"

Well, this is the first Offspring song I've ever played
without standard tuning.  In order to play this, you have
to tune to "Drop D" tuning (DADGBE).  Besides that, it's
nothing unusual, a normal Offspring song...enjoy!

Well, that's it!  During the intro, the "7" on the
low D string might have a small bend, but i'm not sure
