D A D G B E
Song: February Stars
Artist: Foo FIghters
Album: The Colour and the Shape (1997.. classic album)
Guitar 1: Dave Grohl
Guitar 2: Pat Smear

Here is my take on this classic.. the other tabs dont sound right.
Pretty easy to play. Drop D tuning

Slowly   Tempo =75


Verse 1 (Clean)[x2]                              Arpeggio played twice

For Verse 2, play the second part of the intro (where both guitars play) only guitar 2 
louder than in the intro. Play this 2 times

Interlude 2 is the same as Interlude 1.

Pre-Chorus: After the Sixteen D chords are finished, Dave and Pat kick in the fuzzy 
and play the following D chords..

e|-x|  e|-x|
B|-x|  B|-x|
G|-x|  G|-7|   Guitar 1 and 2 play these 8 more times Palm Muted
D|-0|  D|-7|
A|-0|  A|-5|
D|-0|  D|-0|

Guitar 1 and 2 play this together in sync with Taylor's drums(i think it was Taylor.. 
too sure), Nate's bass and Dave's agressive lyrics.

e|-----------------------                        e|-x|
B|----------------------- While Dave plays the   B|-x|
G|----------------------- open D strings, Pat    G|-7|
D|---5~-4~-2-0-----5*--0* plays this --->        D|-7|
A|---5~-4~-2-0-----5*--0* (Every time)           A|-5|
D|---5~-4~-2-0-----5*--0*                        D|-0|
"February Stars"
                 *Slam this chord down as much as you want

e|---------------------|
B|---------------------|
G|---------------------| After the open D strings, Repeat from the
D|-4*--5*---2*--5*---0*| "February Stars" part, continuing until the
A|-4*--5*---2*--5*---0*| end where this is played:
D|-4*--5*---2*--5*---0*|

e|--------------------|
B|------------------3~|
G|--(16 times)------2~| And let this final chord ring trying to get as much
D|-5555555555555555-0~| feedback as possible. Beautiful song. One of my
A|-5555555555555555-0~| favourite songs EVER!
D|-5555555555555555-0~|

Lyrics:
Hanging on
here until I'm gone
just hanging on

Even though
I watched you come and go
how was I to know
You'd steal the show

One day I'll have enough to gamble
I'll wait to hear your final call
bet it all

Hanging on
here until I'm gone
right where I belong
just hanging on

Even though
I pass this time alone
somewhere so unknown
it heals the soul

You ask for walls I'll build them higher
we'll lie in shadows of them all
I'd stand but they're much too tall
and i fall

February Stars
floating in the dark
temporary scars
February Stars
