Hero Tab
I know that there's already a million versions of this tab, but most i've seen aren't
layed out like i do it. This is my interpretation of 'hero'. 
Remember there's an acoustic in the verses and bridge, and electric in the choruses. (If 
your only using one guitar, turn the volume knob down to use clean tone then up again 
when the chorus comes in)
