Welcome to Green Day’s Bang Bang Guitar Tutorial! This song is comprised mostly of power chords and at its core is fairly simple fretting wise. The toughest part will be the speed for most, so that’s why i’ve included a 75% speed play through to help practice the song!

With the tab below, I believe it’s pointless to show you the same power chord 100 times, so that’s why i’ve focused on providing the strumming pattern below. This is the most important part of learning this song.

Enjoy! Like the video and subscribe to the channel for more videos in the future!
