Boulevard of Broken Dreams   Green Day



Tab for "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" by Green Day (Off of "American Idiot")
By Patriko 

Tuning: Standard EADGBE

  Key
  --------------------------------
   ~ : Ride the note
   / : Slide between the two notes

And remember, anytime you see two sections of tab touching via two pipes ("|"s),
that means that more than one guitar is playing.  Play the bottom of the grouped
tabs on top of the upper one.
