Guitarist: Brad Delson
Version: Album Version

Drop Db 1/2 step tuning

+  harmonic

/ Slide 

I watched their performance at an MTV event (forgot the name)years ago. They
played the song with the X-ecutioners.I watched it about 60 times to figure it
out,so I am sure it´s almost 100% correct.

I added another (easier) verse-riff at the end cause the right one is a bit complicated.

I think Linkin Park is one of the Best Bands in the whole world and 
Brad Delson is amazing.

the whole song is distorted

That would be also fine! 

That´s it. Some parts are a bit difficult,but it´s a very cool song which
is worth to play it. Have fun and enjoy my work! Linkin Park RULEZ!!!

"the whole song is distorted" - what did you expect from LP? :P

Lack of accuracy. Lack of accuracy, intro is wrong, verses are off, chorus is for sure off. Needs improvement. compared to other tabs of this song.
