Tabbed by: Matt Benecke

Hole Hearted is a great song with an awesome groove.  Unfortunately, it can be
a little daunting to play for the novice guitar player.  I wanted to try to
create a simplified version that would eliminate as much of the difficult
sections as possible while still maintaining the overall chord structure.

Really, the best way to approach the song (and my version) is to scope out one
of the highly rated tabs or guitar pro files first just to get a sense for the
rhythm and the fills, which, if you're comfortable, you can still fit into my
version.

Anyway, the purpose here is to make the song more strummable, which is a 
challenge given the riffs that comprise most of it (particularly the verses).
My way of doing that is still to include a little riffage but to translate it
into a more playable chord structure.  It's not an exact, note-for-note 
transcription but it's not meant to be--it's simply a chord approach with a 
few runs thrown in for good measure.  Hope you like it and, if you're having
trouble playing the song, that it makes it more approachable for you!




Standard Tuning if you're playing along with the original recording; half step
down sounds good too though!


A note about the Verse Riff

Before I list the chord changes along with the lyrics, I thought it would make
sense to give some explication of how I think the chords should be played in  
the verse. In a way, you're mimicking the original riff without  
overcomplicating what's being played.  I'm going to break up the verse into four 
parts to simplify the explanation; each one corresponds with a section of the
actual verse riff found in the aforementioned tablature.

Part I

Hammer onto the A chord and then pull off before switching to the C and the A5. A C A5 e|-0----0-0-0-0-0-0-0--------|B|-0h2--2-2-2-2-2-2p0--------|G|-0h2--2-2-2-2-2-2p0--0--2--|D|-0h2--2-2-2-2-2-2p0--2--2--|A|-0----0-0-0-0-0-0-0--3--0--|E|---------------------------|
Part II
Then, finger the Am chord and hammer onto the 2nd fret and strum as shown below Am A A5 Asus4e|--------------------------|B|-1h2----3-1h2----3-1h2----|G|-2---2--2-2---2--2-2---2--|D|-2---2--2-2---2--2-2---2--|A|-0---0--0-0---0--0-0---0--|E|--------------------------|
Part III
Hammer onto the A chord and then pull off before switching to the C and the D. A C D e|-0----0-0-0-0-0-0-0-----2--|B|-0h2--2-2-2-2-2-2p0-----3--|G|-0h2--2-2-2-2-2-2p0--0--2--|D|-0h2--2-2-2-2-2-2p0--2--0--|A|-0----0-0-0-0-0-0-0--3-----|E|---------------------------|
