Americana  The Offspring

The Offspring - "Americana"
Track 12 on the album "Americana"
Well, this is the first Offspring song I've ever played
without standard tuning. In order to play this, you have
to tune to "Drop D" tuning (DADGBE). Besides that, it's
nothing unusual, a normal Offspring song...enjoy!

Well, that's it! During the intro, the "7" on the

Oh well, it doesn't really matter. The song's not
hard. Have fun with it!
