Foo Fighters - Exhausted

Tabbed by
Anthony McCaffrey

This is a brilliant song and it sounds great on acoustic or electric guitars. If you are 
an electric guitar be sure to crank up the distortion.

Notes:
- Dropped D Tuning
- Make sure you mute the low 'D' when it's not used.
- The strumming pattern is only personal preference,
  if it sounds better played differently then feel free
  to leave a comment, I'm open to suggestions. The
  section I was unsure about with regards to strumming
  was bridge 2, try it and see what you think.
- I tend to play the lower strings (A+D) a little
  harder on the down strums and the light strings
  (G+B+E) a little harder on the up strums. I sometimes
  miss a few strings on some strums just to give a
  similar sound to the way Grohl plays it on the album.
- There’s around a 50 second gap towards the end of the
  song.. You'll probably want to shorten it a bit if
  you're on the acoustic and if you're using an electric
  guitar make sure you get some feedback during this pause.
  I don't think you need to be exact with the timing, this
  section is just really good for a build up.
- At the start of each section of the chorus you can
  sometimes hear him slide down the fret board rather than
  just strumming the open D power chord.
- Lyrics aren't 100% :S
