Welcome to Throwback Thursday’s where I teach you a classic hit from the last 4-5 decades! This week, by request, I’ll be covering a Teenage Dirtbag Guitar Tutorial from rock band Wheatus! I can stil remember how massive this song was when it came out. It’s so incredible well written, catchy and extremely fun to play on guitar so be sure to give it a shot! You won’t need a capo at all either ūüôā This song is great because it should help develop your power chords quite well.

At the end of the video i’ll be playing through the entirety of #teenagedirtbag with a vocal track on top for you to play along to. Enjoy! Like this #teenagedirtbag video by #wheatus and subscribe to the channel for more videos in the future!

[Intro]
E Bsus4 E Asus2 
E Bsus4 E Asus2

[Verse 1]
    E          Bsus4
Her name is Noelle,
E            Asus2 
I have a dream about her.
E             Bsus4
She rings my bell.
      E              Asus2
I got gym class in half an hour.
E            Bsus4
Oh, how she rocks,
   E              Asus2
In keds and tube socks,
    C#m7         Asus2       Bsus4
But she doesn't know who i am,
    C#m7         Asus2  Bsus4
And she doesn't give a damn about me.


[Chorus 1]
       E          Asus2     Bsus4  C#5    G#5
'Cause I'm just a teenage dirtbag, baby.
     E          Asus2    Bsus4  C#5     G#5
Yeah I'm just a teenage dirtbag, baby.
E         Asus2   Bsus4 C#5   G#5       E  Asus2 Bsus4 C#5 G#5 A5 B5 
Listen to Iron Maiden,  Baby, with me.

[Verse 2]
    E          Bsus4
Her boyfriends a dick
E            Asus2 
and he brings a gun to school,
E             Bsus4
And he'd simply kick
  E              Asus2
My ass if he knew the truth.
E            Bsus4
He lives on my block
E            Asus2 
And he drives an Iroc
    C#m7         Asus2      Bsus4
But he doesn't know who i am,
    C#m7         Asus2      Bsus4
And he doesn't give a damn about me.


[Chorus 2]
       E          Asus2     Bsus4  C#5    G#5
'Cause I'm just a teenage dirtbag, baby.
     E          Asus2    Bsus4  C#5     G#5
Yeah I'm just a teenage dirtbag, baby.
E         Asus2   Bsus4 C#5   G#5       E  Asus2 Bsus4 C#5 G#5 A5 B5 
Listen to Iron Maiden,  Baby, with me.

E             Bsus4
Man, i feel like mould,
  E              Asus2
It's prom night and i am lonely.
E             Bsus4
Lo and behold:
  E              Asus2
She's walking over to me.
E             Bsus4
This must be fake,
  E              Asus2
My lip starts to shake.
C#m7         Asus2     Bsus4
