My Hero is one of the best foo fighters songs on the colour and the shapeand
i'm sure this is right. None of the other versions of this song are right.

Sorry about this foo fighters fans but I've made a mistake, the guitarist isn't actually called nate mendal (thats the bass guy's name) His actuall name is Chris. It's not a major mistake but I hope you like my tab anyway, by the way I wasn't a member when I tabbed this so if you want some decent tabs I'm working on a few. (check out other foo fighters songs tabbed by me:Learn to fly ver 4 or 5 I think, and Everlong ver 8.

First off, I can see you stole this from the Hal & Leonard tab book!

Second, the tab book is wrong, therefore so is your tab, only slightly, during the verse while the lead riff is played, the rhythm guitar does this:

e||--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0------------------
B||--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0------------------
G||--1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6--
D||--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6--
A||--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4--
E||--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0------------------

And on the chorus it can be played easier, the same chords in different positions:

e||--------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
B||--------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
G||----------8-8-8-8-9-9-9-9-11-11-11-11-|---------8-8-8-8-9-9-9-9-11-11-11-11-|
D||--7-7-7-7-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x--x--x--x--|-2-2-2-2-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x--x--x--x--|
A||--7-7-7-7-6-6-6-6-7-7-7-7-9--9--9--9--|-2-2-2-2-6-6-6-6-7-7-7-7-9--9--9--9--|
E||--5-5-5-5-----------------------------|-0-0-0-0-----------------------------|
