Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) is a fantastic song for developing your right hand techniques.
Originally Billie Joe Armstrong played it using a pick but many people prefer to play it fingerstyle, and as we're dedicated to the art of fingerpicking that's how we're going to learn it.
Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) consists of just 4 chords - G, Cadd9, D and Em and thankfully it isn't too tricky to change between them. If you are unfamiliar with these chords I recommend practising the changes first by strumming between them:
- Key - G major
- Tuning - standard
- Tempo - 190 bpm
- Difficulty - super-easy
