When I Come Around Free Lesson Video

Tune down 1/2 step. Thanks to all who requested this tune! Green Day were a big influence in the early days of my development as a guitarist so this one is for all the beginners to intermediate out there. I feel like when I began learning this song, I didn’t pay much attention to some of the accents on the power chords with the palm muting and I just basically made up my own strum pattern. But I think what Billie Joe is doing here is very essential to what is needed here. I checked out some live videos to make sure that the positioning is correct as well assuming that’s what he did in the studio also. *Edit. I also noticed Billie Joe does an upstrum on the E minor chord second strum in the 3rd measure. Really cool. I used to always play that with a downstrum. We’ve also got Time of Your Life, Basketcase, Wake Me Up when September Ends, and feel free to leave a comment below 🙂

Isolated TRACKS (mp3)

Here are the drums, bass and other background tracks to jam along to When I Come Around. I've also included all of my isolated guitar tracks in case you really want to hear what's going on. Isolated tracks are normally very difficult to find online, and can be very helpful in cracking a difficult solo tab.
