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.

You wouldn't happen to have the chords for this would you? I'd love to play it but I'm not very good with tab.
