I Want to Be on T.V.

Green Day

Allright, here's my first attempt ever to tab a song, so bear with me... (Coz I'm bound to screw up!!!)
The song's called "I want to be on TV" by Green Day. It's a previously unreleased non-LP track, but now you can find it on the single CD "Geek Stink Breath" released in October '95.
Tune down half a step...
*** Heavy distortion + real fuzzed out sound ***
Riff A: -------
e|----------------------------------------------------------------- B|----------------------------------------------------------------- G|--6r-4--6r-4--6r-4-6----4-4-4-4---------------------------------- D|--6r-4--6r-4--6r-4-6----4-4-4-4---------------------------------- A|--4--4--4--4--4--4-4----2-2-2-2---------------------------------- E|-----------------------------------------------------------------
Drums, bass and 2nd guitar kicks in at first time the riff gets repeated. 2nd guitar plays the same riff.
Vocals kick in at 4th time the riff repeats itself.
Riff B:
------- Play this riff when BJ sings "I wanna be on TV..."
e|----------------------------------------------------------------- B|----------------------------------------------------------------- G|--3--3-3-3----5--5-5-5----6--6-6-6----7-7-7--8-8-8--------------- D|--3--3-3-3----5--5-5-5----6--6-6-6----7-7-7--8-8-8--------------- A|--1--1-1-1----3--3-3-3----4--4-4-4----5-5-5--6-6-6--------------- E|-----------------------------------------------------------------
End the song with riff A, but add this last chord:

The lyrics? I couldn't understand much of them, kinda hard if you're not a native English speaker. =P Sorry, but you're on your own for that one...
P.S. Could the "veterans" (i.e. the more experienced) amongst the tabbers, transcribers give me some hints, clues for transcribing, tabbing songs? I would appreciate this very much. =)
