Welcome to this My Heroine Guitar Tutorial by Silverstein!

What an awesome awesome song, this band was one of my favourites back in the day and this song was released at the peak of the emo era! What a time to be alive. In this lesson I’ll teach you the acoustic version of this song which includes the main verse riff which is a lot of fun to play.

My friend and amazing artist Tooglahas provided vocals for the playthrough at the end of the song. Check his youtube channel out and hit subscribe►TOOGLA’s CHANNEL – http://bit.ly/2X4CQux

[Intro]
Em C D

[Verse]
     Em    C        D
The drugs begin to peak

     Em     C             D
A smile of joy arrives in me

     C        D         Em         G
But sedation changes to panic and nausea

     C                D
And breath starts to shorten

     Em                  D
And heartbeats pound softer

Em        C            D
You won't try to save me!

Em         C          D                            C
You just want to hurt me and leave me desperate!

[Chorus]
      D        Em        Em7                         C     
You taught my heart, a sense I never knew I had.

   D     Em         G            
I can't forget, the times that I was 

C           D                Em
Lost and depressed from the awful truth

    Em7            C
How do you do it?

               D
You're my heroine!

Em          C        D
You won't leave me alone!

Em         C            D                       C
Chisel my heart out of stone, I give in everytime.

[Chorus]
      D        Em       Em7                         C     
You taught my heart, a sense I never knew I had.

   D     Em         G            
I can't forget, the times that I was 

C           D                Em
Lost and depressed from the awful truth

    Em7             C
How do you do it?

               D             G
You're my heroine!

[Verse]
           B7             Em           D              C          D    G
I bet you laugh, at the thought of me thinking for myself. (myself)

           B7               Em               D                C
I bet you believe, that I'm better off with you than someone else.

      Em    C      D          Em     C             D
Your face arrives again, all hope I had becomes surreal.

     C          D           Em           G
But under your covers more torture than pleasure

     C              D                 Em         G
And just past your lips there's more anger than laughter

    C        D          Em      G
Not now or forever will I ever change you

    C          D            Em           D          C
I know that to go on, I'll break you, my habit!

[Chorus]
      D        Em       E7                        C     
You taught my heart, a sense I never knew I had.

   D     Em         G            
I can't forget, the times that I was 

C           D                Em
Lost and depressed from the awful truth

     Em7               C
How do you do it?

               D 
You're my heroine!

Em       C     D         Em(mute)
I will save myself!
