Americana Tab

AMERICANA by THE OFFSPRING from AMERICANA (1998)
This is the title song of the 5th Offspring-album. It´s a little bit hard to play
because you must move your left hand quickly. 
The lyrics´s are also fucking great - they´re explaining the American way of life.


For the Intro, you must tune the low E-string down till it is a low D-string but you can play
this one also with the high D-string
=Intro=  X8
