"Suffocate" by Green Day

 

Chord diagram by David Chapman

 

 

 

These are the chords to what I consider one of the best GD songs. It's a B-side to the European Good Riddance single. And it's very easy to play, just 3 chords. This is my first tab, so go easy on me.

 

 

 

All chords are power chords except that explained below

 

 

 

Chords used:

 

 

 

G# - F# - C# -

 

- - -

 

- - 6

 

6 4 4

 

4 4 4

 

4 2 -

 

 

 

 

 

(Intro)

 

 

 

Build up to a G# power chord like such:

 

 

 

---------------------

 

---------------------

 

---------------6-6-6-

 

--------6-6-6--6-6-6-

 

-4-4-4--4-4-4--4-4-4- (I can't figure out the guitar lick)

 

 

 

Play the full chord only during the second and fourth lines in the verse:

 

 

 

(Verse)

 

 

 

G#

 

3AM I'm drunk again my head is standing underneath my puke so make it

 

F# G# F# G#

 

Stop I'm getting off, Make it stop I'm getting off.

 

G#

 

Sedatives and dizzy spells, and smelling like a salad in my puke so make it

 

F# G# F# G#

 

Stop I'm getting off, Make it stop I'm getting off.

 

 

 

 

 

(Bridge)

 

 

 

F# C#

 

Well slipped into a coma once again

 

F# G#

 

Where's my organ donor, lend a hand

 

 

 

 

 

(Pre-chorus)

 

 

 

C# F# G#

 

So when you think you're all alone

 

C# F# G#

 

No-ones left to come around

 

C# F# G#

 

Drop like flies and empathise

 

 

 

 

 

(Chorus)

 

 

 

F# C# G#

 

And I know that I will someday

 

F# C# G#

 

And I know that I will suffocate

 

C# G# C# G# C# G#

 

Suffocate, suffocate, suffocate

 

 

 

 

 

(Verse 2) - same as the first, include the intro:

 

 

 

One night stands and cheap regrets,

 

I take another drag off of my cigarette,

 

So stop, I'm getting off,

 

Make it stop, I'm getting off

 

One last stop for one track mind,

 

Just give me shelter, give me give me something

 

Make it stop, I'm getting off,

 

Make it stop, I'm getting off.

 

 

 

(Bridge)

 

(Pre-chorus)

 

(Chorus)

 

 

 

F# G# F# C# G#, F# G# F# C# G#

 

C# G#, C# G#, C# G# (extend this G#)

 

 

 

(Pre-chorus)

 

 

 

F# C# G#

 

And I know that I will someday

 

F# C# G#

 

And I know that I will suffocate

 

F# C# G#

 

And I know that I will someday

 

F# C# G#

 

And I know that I will suffocate

 

C# G# C# G# C# G# (extend this G#)

 

Suffocate, suffocate, suffocate

 

 

 

F# C# G#, F# C# G#, F# C# G#, F# C# G#

 

 

 

End on G# C# (hit quickly)
