Linkin Park
Figure .09
Meteora
C# Tuning - (Drop D tuned down 1/2 a step)

Just to note to all the guys who tab out Linkin Park songs, all Linkin Park
songs are played in C# tuning.  Although, you may have to listen carefully in
some of their recordings because Brad Delson uses a 7-string guitar in a few
others. This song is not played with a 7-string. Trust me.

For the pre-chorus when Mike is whispering "It never goes away," you
don't play anything, but I do this little number just cuz it sounds
cooler:  Use wah effect and play the top E-string (Db tuned) open.
Strum up and down and increase wah gradually, and then cut the wah off
after Chester says "and now..."  Listen as the cymbols come in gradually
JUST before the chorus is played.  Don't cut off wah when this happens.
Listen to the beat and cut off wah before you play the first note for
the chorus.

"You've become a part of me...you'll always be right here."

"You've become a part of me...you'll always be my fear."

                       --10--|
*To know when you play ---8--|, the chord is played on "me".
                       ---8--|

Then you play back the verse through the chorus yet again.  Only this time,
after you play the chorus while Chester is holding out "you", you play this
little bit:
eb|--------------------|
Bb|--------------------|
Gb|--------------------|
Db|--0-0-0-0-8-8-10-8--|
Ab|--0-0-0-0-8-8--8-8--|
Db|--0-0-0-0-8-8--8-8--|
"...you."

Next, just like the part when Mike is whispering "...it never goes away" but
this time he gradually gets harder and louder until Chester screams out "get
away from me", you play this:

eb|-----------------------------------------------------|
Bb|-----------------------------------------------------|
Gb|-----------------------------------------------------|
Db|--------8------------8-----------8----5h6-5h6-6-5h6--|
Ab|-----5------------5-----------5----------------------|
Db|--0----------0-----------0---------------------------|

eb|------------------------------------|
Bb|------------------------------------|
Gb|------------------------------------|
Db|--------8------------8-----------8--|  Hold out '8'.
Ab|-----5------------5-----------5-----|
Db|--0----------0-----------0----------|

But, when Chester says "me", that's the Bridge part.

Bridge (2x)

Bb|----------------------------------------------|
Gb|----------------------------------------------|
Db|--1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3-4--1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3-4--|
Ab|--1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3----1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3----|
Db|--1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3----1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3----|
"ME!"  "Give me my space back, you gotta just-"

eb|----------------------------------------------|
Bb|----------------------------------------------|

Db|--1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3-4--1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3-4--|
Ab|--1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3----1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3----|
Db|--1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3----1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3----|
"GO!"  Everything comes down to memories of-"

eb|----------------------------------------------|
Bb|----------------------------------------------|
Gb|----------------------------------------------|
Db|--1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3-4--1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3-4--|
Ab|--1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3----1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3----|
Db|--1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3----1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3----|
"YOU!"  "I've kept it in, but now I'm letting you-"

eb|-----------------------------------------------------|
Bb|-----------------------------------------------------|
Gb|-----------------------------------------------------|
Db|--1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3-4--1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3--x-x-x-x--|
Ab|--1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3----1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3--x-x-x-x--|
Db|--1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3----1-0--x-x-x--0--2-3--x-x-x-x--|
"KNOW!"  "I've let you go, so get away from me."

Then you just play the chorus again.  Play all throughout the rest of the song
the chorus part.  It gets a little tricky when Chester says "lost inside these
thoughts of you."  Keep playing after he says that and end the song like this:

eb|--------------------|
Bb|--------------------|
Gb|--------------------|
Db|--0-0-0-0-8-8-10-8--|
Ab|--0-0-0-0-8-8--8-8--|
Db|--0-0-0-0-8-8--8-8--|
"...you."

And that's all fellas!  If you have any problems feel free to e-mail me at
dstrbdfan_2007@yahoo.com. Thanks and enjoy this song.  It's one of my
favorites from Linkin Park.
