    Here's a bit of the tabs i picked up from the net... they're absolutely accurate..

                                       Bm                          A             Bm
                                  As soon as you're born they make you feel small 
                                                           A          Bm
                                  By giving you no time instead of it all
                                                                    A         Bm
                                  Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
                                        Bm           A        E         Bm
                                    A working class hero is something to be
                                        Bm           A        E          Bm
                                    A working class hero is something to be  
    However, i have one major problem..
    if you listen to the song, there's a hammering with Bm, which makes the song so rocking...
    but i cant understand, how do i hammer while i'm on the B minor, since the string to be hammered is 4th string...
    If anyone knows, please help me out

    Are you not playing with a full barre?

    Yeah, i play with my index finger barred across the 2nd fret, and all the rest fingers, except for the thumb, occupied in fretting...
    Now how am i supposed to bar and hammer at the same time?

    The 4th string is fretted with the pinky, you have to hammer with the pinky.

    It sounds difficult, and it is, and the only way to get there is practice.

    Sorry couldn't offer an easier solution - but there isn't one.

    It's definitely possible though.

    hmmm, thanks for the "tough" slution, i'll try it...

    but i've heard there are other ways of playing Bminor, where barring isnt required,...

    There are 4 positions for Bm before the 12th fret, of which 3 are absolutely reasonable to play. Anyway I'll stop answering here as you've got another thread going.
