			     Back & Forth - Foo Fighters

Tabbed by: Jimbompaleen

Tuning: Standard

Guitar 1: Dave Grohl
Guitar 2: Chris Shiflett

Another awesome Foo Fighter song. This one's sorta difficult
with a fairly big stretch in the verse but your mother and I 
have faith in you.
Now some of you might disagree with Dave just playing a C in
the Chorus but in every video I've seen them play, that's what
he does. You can play an F if you want, It's up to you really

About the artist behind Back And Forth Tab:

Foo Fighters is an American alternative rock band formed by singer/guitarist Dave Grohl in 1995.[1] Grohl formed the group as a one-man project after the dissolution of his previous band Nirvana in 1994. Prior to the release of Foo Fighters in 1995, Grohl drafted Nate Mendel (bass), William Goldsmith (drums), and Pat Smear (guitar) to complete the group. Goldsmith and Smear left after the recording of the group's second album The Colour and the Shape (1997). They were replaced by Taylor Hawkins and Franz Stahl, respectively, although Stahl left prior to the recording of the group's third album, There Is Nothing Left to Lose (1999).

Chris Shiflett joined as the band's second guitarist after the completion of There is Nothing Left to Lose. The band released its fourth album One by One in 2002. The group followed that release with the two-disc In Your Honor (2005), which was split between acoustic songs and harder-rocking material. Foo Fighters released its sixth album Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace in 2007. Over the course of the band's career, three of its albums have won Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album, and all six have been nominated for Grammys.
