Greenday - "21 Guns" chords and lyrics

Greenday were the one of the bands who got me back into listening to music again in the 90s, with their punchy songs and anthemic choruses.

I wasn't a huge fan of their "American Idiot" album, although I did post the chords and lyrics for the title song plus "Holiday", "Wake Me Up When September Ends" and "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" to my Greenday song chords page - just one of those albums with a few gems, and some fairly forgettable songs.

Their latest album, "21st Century Breakdown", although again it's a "Rock Opera", I think it's overall a better collection of songs, I hope to work out a bunch of playable versions over the next few weeks.

For the moment I have transcribed and added "21 Guns" to my Greenday guitar chords site page. The chords are not too tricky, being Dm, A# (Bb), F and C, with a D thrown into the chorus and an A# minor ( Bb minor) appearing in the bridge. It's quite a slow tempo song, so even early learners get a chance to make the chord changes in time!

You can find "21 Guns" on my Guitar Chords & Lyrics website, on the Greenday page.

If the embedded video above doesn't play correctly, you can check it out on this YouTube - Greenday 21 Guns link.

BTW - If you are a wannabe lead guitar player, you really should check out James Todd's Guitar Leads website, it is a really excellent resource for guitarists of all levels to acquire or improve their lead guitar playing skills.
