Green Day – Time of Your Life

Time of Your Life

What can I say about this song that hasn’t been said before? It’s Green Days ballad about Billie-Joes break up with a girl that moved to Ecuador. A song about broken hearts and missed opportunities.

What Are We Learning To Play?

Below is a video of what you will be able to play by the end of this post. 

Ukulele Tabs

I’m using a low G for this one, but I tried it with a high G and it still works pretty well. We are learning to play the opening fingerpicking section. Then the vocal lines for the verse and chorus. For the fingerpicking assign these fingers to each string. Use your thumb for the G and C, then your first finger on the E and middle finger on the A.
