Tom Kitt – where the fuck are you? You’re a fucking genius, man! Thank you SO MUCH. I can never ever thank you enough. I swear you’re going to be on every holiday card for the rest of my life. If your kids need a god parent, I’ll do it! I’ll do the Jewish version ALSO! It’s no problem, I’ll fuckin do it!
What did I do this Memorial Day weekend? Besides a 12 hour BBQ, Saturday night drinks on a boat, lots of yoga, and spray painting my amp hot pink, I wrote out the tab to the entirety of Jesus of Suburbia using this awesome video. My guitar teacher has a [better?] way of writing out tab, but this [semi-ridiculous] method works for me when I’m teaching myself a song on my own without his assistance. And yes, it took five pages to write it all out.
I can play about half of it right now. Kinda shoddily but I’m working on it. It’s about 8 chords in all but Green Day likes to switch up the order they’re played in a LOT so I’m finding it’s a bit mind boggling sometimes (a lot of the time!).
For now, I wish you all …. Rage x ❤
Music video for Jesus of Suburbia. It’s official, I think? I had no idea this existed! I love their epic music videos. It’s really, really cool, actually. Happy Friday!
Green Day Song of the Week: I was originally going to use the song “Jesus of Suburbia” from Bullet in a Bible, but it was too large. So instead, here is another b-side song from 2004’s American Idiot called Shoplifter. I like the beat and the lyrics are hysterical. Enjoy!
