How to play Wake Me Up When September Ends by Green Day on Cigar Box Guitar

This is how I play Wake Me Up When September Ends on a four string cigar box guitar. I play it in open G tuning, DGDB. The original is in standard EADGBE.

Thanks Bob and Richard.  I saw them a couple of times, once a long time ago and another on the American Idiot tour.  Great band.

Agree with Bob here, Green Day is a good choice for you. Good job on the how to video Clarky!

Good one Clarky!  I reckon there's a good few GDay songs that can be played CBG-Style.  I saw them play at Rock City, Nottingham in '98. awesome gig, top entertainers!

Well. crap.  Nothing wrong with GDGB - one of my faves.  

Comment by Clarky on June 5, 2019 at 9:46am

I don't know how I messed that up above, it should read GDGB!  I am an idiot!  Thanks Uncle J!

DGBD!  Open G Banjo tuning!   Sounds good and user friendly.   You are getting quite a repertoire of songs.
