Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


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|-----------------------------------------------------------------

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|-----------------------------------------------------------------

  r=release

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..."

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. =)
