Artist: Chad Kroeger
Song: Hero


ATTENTION: this tab is NOT by me, its by mickmars2, who listed it under "chad kroeger"
of nickelback, i put it here so people would actually see it. This version sounds MUCH
to the real thing than ver1 and the other ver that ripped ver1 :P (especially the part 
uses simple chords in the verse!!). The following is the tab posted by him----


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)

The bridge isn't exact but i'm absolutely positive the solo is right.
Hope it's okay.
