It’s time to go back to my youth! Green Day Ukulele style! The full American Idiot album arranged for the uke. In this post, we will go over the Green Day Ukulele TABs for American Idiot, She’s A Rebel and Wake Me Up When September Ends.
Green Day had never been one of my favourite bands, although I always quite liked them, they just never caught me until American Idiot was released. It blew me away. There is not one mediocre, let alone bad track on this album.
This video is part of a project I’m working on. I’m learning to play my favourite albums on a ukulele. If you enjoyed it why not check out some other classic albums that I arranged. Like The Clash, Rage Against The Machine or System Of A Down.
Green Day Ukulele TABs
The chords are mimicking the opening rhythm guitar and the most iconic part of the song. The riff is the Billie J lyrics.
SHES A REBEL
This requires a fair bit of nippiness in the fingers to get it down.
WAKE ME UP
This is the massive solo at the end of the song.
All the other tabs for the rest of the album can be found on Gumroad or my Patreon page. Patreon is a cool way for you to join my community and support me by pledging a small monthly donation. Imagine that, I could make a living doing what I love… because of you!
