Heroes (Main)

Animated Heroes (Main) tab by David Bowie on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This is a good song - especially for beginners to play. There are a lot of instruments in the song, so we've stripped it down to just the drums, bass and guitar. There are 3 guitar parts, and each are quite straightforward.

Here we look at the main Rhythm guitar. This is all played using palm muting and regular downstrokes. The chords are simple and all played on just 2 strings:

Verse - This is nice and easy. Just alternate between D5 and G5. Use 16 Palm muted downstrokes per chord.

Chorus - This is more of the same. Here is the chord progression:

C5 - D5 - A5 * - E5 * - D5 - C5 * - G * - D5

* These are played with 8 downstrokes, the rest are 16.

That's all you need for the whole song, the rest is just repeating the verse / chorus progressions.
