SONG:              Knowledge
ARTIST:            Operation Ivy
ALBUM:             Energy (Lookout! 10)
LYRICS WRITTEN BY: Jesse (except * - written by Lint)
MUSIC WRITTEN BY:  Lint (Tim Armstrong) & OpIvy
TABBED BY:         blister@ingress.com (Andy Amoeba)  Nov. '95

I recently downloaded the chord progression from nevada.edu and
noticed that the tab given was not really correct.  The tab was
originally posted by trebor@alpha2.csd.uwm.edu but it to my
knowledge (no pun intended) that the song is basically written
for standard tuning.  For those of you who know about OpIvy's
(more specifically Tim's) style, you'd know that he generally uses
standard tuning and power chords.  I hope the following will clear
things up a bit and the main riff is C, Bb, and F.

Intro: (Palm Muted)
e -------------------------------------------------------------------
B -------------------------------------------------------------------
G -5-5-5-5-5-5--(0)--3-3-3-3-3-3--(0)--------------------------------
D -5-5-5-5-5-5--(0)--3-3-3-3-3-3--(0)--3-3-3-3-3-3-------------------
A -3-3-3-3-3-3--(0)--1-1-1-1-1-1--(0)--3-3-3-3-3-3-------------------
E -------------------------------------1-1-1-1-1-1-------------------
   I know...     when you can't... off the barrel...

Main Riff: 
e -------------------------------------------------------------------
B -------------------------------------------------------------------
G -5-5-5-5-5-5--(0)--3-3-3-3-3-3--(0)--------------------------------
D -5-5-5-5-5-5--(0)--3-3-3-3-3-3--(0)--3-3-3-3-3-3-------------------
A -3-3-3-3-3-3--(0)--1-1-1-1-1-1--(0)--3-3-3-3-3-3-------------------
E -------------------------------------1-1-1-1-1-1-------------------
   All I know...   All I know is...   don't know nothing...

Fill:
e ------------------------------------
B -6-5-3-------6-5-3-------4-4-3------  (Repeat Twice)
G -------5-5-5-------5-5-5-------3----
D ---------------------------------3--
A ------------------------------------
E ------------------------------------
             This time I got it all... (ect)

Here is the original post.  While I acknowledge that he stated in
standard tuning the chords are C, Bb, and F, but the actual tabbing
of his fails to show this.  Many thanks however for his efforts.

Since the tab for Green Day's cover of Knowledge was recently posted, 
here is the original by Operation Ivy.  Mostly power chords, but a really 
great riff too. The D,C,G progression goes throughout the whole song 
(verse and refrain) if you want all the lyrics, they are in the CD.
Tune down one whole step for this song D,G,C,F,A,D. Or to play in
standard tuning, play C,Bb,F and play the riff off of 3rd position.
