Green Day               Nuclear Family

This is my first tab, so sorry if it's not up to scratch! Leave a comment if you think 
any of it needs improvement or is just plain wrong.
Tempo:   175 (ish)
Intro

e|----------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------|   This bit is slightly less distorted
G|-9---9-999---9-999---9-9-9--------|   and this isn't the exact strumming
D|-9---9-999---9-999---9-9-9--------|   pattern of this particular bit, but
A|-7---7-777---7-777---7-7-7--------|   you can figure it out by listening
E|----------------------------------|   to the song

e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9------------------9-9-9--------|
D|-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-7---7-7-7---7-7--9-9-9-9--99--|   X2

E|---------------------------------5---5-5-5---5-5--------7--77--|

On the second time, another guitar plays this riff:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-8---8---4--------------------9-9-9--------|
D|-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x---x---x---7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--9-9-9-9--99--|

E|---------------------------------5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--------7--77--|

Verse 1, 2 and 3
         (Guitar Rest, Drum and Bass Fill)
e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-9------------------------------------------------9-9-9--------|    X4
D|-9-------------------------------7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--9-9-9-9------|

E|---------------------------------5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--------7------|


Chorus 1, 2 and 3

It's easy to figure out the strumming pattern of the chorus, just listen to the song. It 
sounds a bit like a section of the verse from "Welcome to Paradise"

e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----------9----------------------------------------------------|
D|-7--------9-(x16)--7--------9----------------------------------|
A|-7-(x32)--7--------7-(x32)--9-(x16)----------------------------|
E|-5-----------------5--------7----------------------------------|

After second chorus play the verse riff twice, it's the Bass solo!

D|----9-----------|----------------|  listen to the song.
A|----------------|----------------|
E|----------------|----------------|

NOTE 3RD VERSE:

I think there a second guitar playing a fill with perhaps a harmonic pedal, I'm not 
sure. If anyone does know just say so in the comments, it's a pretty cool effect in my opinion.

Outro:

Rhythm plays

e|----------------|    If you wanted to, you could add |--------|
B|----------------|    in these chords now and then.   |-9---10-|
G|-9--------------|                                    |-9----9-|
D|-9-(X64)--------|                                    |-9----9-|
A|-7--------------|                                    |-7----7-|
E|----------------|                                    |--------|

While lead plays

e|--------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------|
G|-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-8---8---4--|    X5

A|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-6---6---2--|

B|-----|     A bend on the G string twice every bar       |-----|

A|-----|                                                  |-7---|
E|-----|                                                  |-----|
