Artist: Linkin Park\Jay-Z
Song: Points of Authority\99 Problems\One Step Closer
Album: Collision Course
Tuning: Drop D and half step down (Db Ab Db Gb Bb eb)
Tabbed by: Hawk987 (Jake)

key:
\ and / = slides
. = Palm mute
(x) = play the number inside as a harmonic
x = dead string (cover the string, but don't press down)
h = hammer on
p = pull off (I don't think I used any in this tab)

Notess: This song is performed in Drop D and half step down, 
but Drop D will sound fine if you don't play to the CD or with 
a band. This song is basically made up of the guitar parts of 
Points of Authority and One Step Closer. As far as I can tell, 
all the guitar work was taken directly from one of those songs, 
in other words, there is nothing new, as far as the guitar part goes.
This tab will not include lyrics or rythms.
There are various effects used throughout this song. I'm pretty sure
its mostly distortion and heavy overdrive, but you can decide what sounds
best to you.

Intro:

(synthesizer intro)

After a while, guitar plays this:

Prechorus
This is the prechorus in the original One Step Closer, but is played as part
of the verse here.

eb|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Bb|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Gb|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Db|--5-5-x-x--x-5-5-x-x--x----------------------------------------------------|x8
Ab|--5-5-x-x--x-5-5-x-x--x----------------------------------------------------|

Prechorus

Db|--5-5-x-x--x-5-5-x-x--x----------------------------------------------------|x8
Ab|--5-5-x-x--x-5-5-x-x--x----------------------------------------------------|
Db|--5-5-x-x--x-5-5-x-x--x----------------------------------------------------|

This is followed by a harmonic, but I can't tell exactly which one.
If you're really having trouble, I use (3) on the Db (low E) string.
I know this isn't right, but I like the sound of it better.
I think the real one is:
eb|--(5)-(5)-(5)-(5)---------|
Bb|------------------(5)-----|
Gb|----------------------(5)-|
Db|--------------------------|
Ab|--------------------------|
Db|--------------------------|
but i'm not really sure.

Chorus
This isn't really the chorus of this song, but its the chorus guitar part of 
the original.

eb|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Bb|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Gb|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Db|--0-0-12-12--12-10-10-7-7--7-9-9-5-5--5-7-7-3-3--3-------------------------|x4
Ab|--0-0-12-12--12-10-10-7-7--7-9-9-5-5--5-7-7-3-3--3-------------------------|
Db|--0-0-12-12--12-10-10-7-7--7-9-9-5-5--5-7-7-3-3--3-------------------------|

on the fourth time, add this on the end:
(don't hit the -3- again, just use the one at the end of the chorus
               -3-
               -3-

                       "BREAK!"


that's it.

this song is long, but pretty simple. I suck at rythms, so I didn't really try
to include them at all. Usually, I put the lyrics, or at least some of the lyrics,
with my tabs, but with all the rapping, it gets pretty hard. 
If there are any non-grammatical or non-spelling corrections, please tell me.
Feel free to do anything you want with this tab, as long as you don't edit it,
and you do leave my name and e-mail on it. oh, and you can't make a profit off
it. that's illegal.
