I decided to include several Green Day guitar lessons on our site because of 2 reasons. Firstly, their music is easy to learn by beginners who like the genre, and secondly, they were one of my favorite punk bands from my younger years. I actually met them at a festival in Europe, and got to hang out with them (and their BIG Philippine bodyguard, Tiny).


Green Day was formed in 1987, and interestingly enough, only released 8 studio albums. The most popular of their albums (based on chart rankings) is 21st Century Breakdown, which is available on vinyl as well, for all hard core punk fans. They've won tons of awards, with most of their albums having gone multiple platinum, so I think it's safe to say that while you learn to play Green Day guitar songs, you're not only advancing your technique, but making great music at the same time.
