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!

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----|

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] x2
[CHORUS OUTRO] (no scratching - end on an E if you like)

Have fun playing it and shouting along!
