My Hero Tab

   
My Hero by Foo Fighters
Tabbed by Dave Matney (naveofhearts at hotmail dot com)

Guitars are heavily distorted 100% of the time.
Bass is played with a pick, and never moves away from the root notes.

There's a lead out, that I didn't have a guitar to figure out (I tabbed this at work,
memory).  In a live performance, it can be omitted.

Alternative fingering for chorus.

This is the first and third parts, where Dave is singing.

The second and fourth parts, where the guitar splits, is almost identical to the way
written above(in the song, not the alternative fingering), but let the low E ring throug,
keep the same pattern as the alternative fingering. (This method tends to be the best 
method when you're playing the song by yourself, on an acoustic guitar.)
