ENDING -Guitar play chorus 4 times and then end on E chord. -Bass play chorus 4 times and then end on Ab:-7- That's pretty much the whole song. The strumming patterns probably not exact, just listen to the CD and you'll get a feel for the right patterns. The bassline is pretty simplified because I'm not a true bass player. I know Mike Dirnt adds his stuff in between, but I just gave the basic idea. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to e-mail me at (email@example.com).
