    Good Riddance

    Green Day


    This is a simplified version of the song that I created for a 5-year-old student. It's played on just the 6th string. Instead of chord names, only the 6th string fret number is provided.

    Playing a bass line on the 6th string is the easiest way to play a song on guitar--perfect for total beginners or kids who want to sing and play at the same time.

     

    Intro:

    3 (2)                              8                   10

    Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road.

    3 (2)                                         8                        10
    Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go.

    So make the best of this test, and don't ask why.

    It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time.

    It's something unpredictable, but in the end is right.

    I hope you had the time of your life.

    / 3 - - - / - - - - / 8 - - - / 10 - - - / (x2)

     

    3 (2)                                        8                     10
    So take the photographs, and still frames in your mind.

    3 (2)                           8                          10
    Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time.

    0              10                 8               3
    Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial.

    0               10                 8              3
    For what it's worth, it was worth all the while.
