My Hero Acoustic Tab
Foo Fighters - My Hero (acoustic)

Tabbed by: Benjy Curzon-Jones

I tabbed this from Dave Grohl's performance in the Radio 1 live lounge.
Here is the video:

I don't need to tell you all how great this song is... but it is great!

This version is simpler to play during the chorus as it only uses an A instead of the 
notes used in the original.
I also happen to think this sounds better when only playing on an acoustic, especially 
if you're singing it too.

There are some funny chord names in it, but ignore those, they are pretty simple to play 
once you get used to it.

Enjoy!

INTRO/VERSE 1:

B|--0---0-0-0-0--4---7-7-7-7-5-5-5-----|

A|--2---2-2-2-2--4---4-4-4-4-4-4-4-----|
E|--0---0-0-0-0------------------------|

Too alarming now, to talk about
Take your pictures down, shake it out
Truth or consequence, say it aloud
Use that evidence, race it around

CHORUS:
A                                    E      Esus4  E  Esus4
There goes my hero, watch him as he goes
A                               E    Esus4  E  Esus4
There goes my hero, he's ordinary

CHORUS OUTRO:
    F#           A
e|--2---2-2-2-2--0----------X-X-X-X----|
B|--2---2-2-2-2--2----------X-X-X-X----|
G|--3---3-3-3-2--2--|LET |--X-X-X-X----|
D|--4---4-4-4-4--2--|RING|--X-X-X-X----|
A|--4---4-4-4-4--0----------X-X-X-X----|
E|--2---2-2-2-2-------------X-X-X-X----|

VERSE 2 (same as verse 1):

Don't the best of them, bleed it out
While the rest of them, peter out
Truth or consequence, say it aloud
Use that evidence, race it around

CHORUS
CHORUS OUTRO (exclude the scratching after the A)

BREAKDOWN/SOLO:
e|-------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------|
G|--9-9-9-9-9-9-9-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8----| x 4 or 8
D|--9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9----|
A|-------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------|
(Keep repeating and slowly incorporating the open B and e strings,
then start to include the A and E strings in the final repeat before the final verse.
This makes it build up nicely and sounds pretty good - in my opinion!)

VERSE 3 (half the length of Verse 1 and 2):

Kudos my hero, leaving all the best
You know my hero, the one that's on

CHORUS X 2
CHORUS OUTRO (no scratching - end on an E if you like)

Have fun playing it and shouting along!

About the artist behind My Hero Acoustic 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.
