Tuning:

EADGBe

Youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-dG5cw4-BQ


Tabbed by myGartenarbeit (myLinkinPark19HD)



I would recommend you to watch my cover on youtube,if you want to play this tab as exact as possible
(time notations refer to my video, not the album version!).

I am not going to tab the rhythm parts and repeats entirely  because it would take too much time.

Intro

You basically need the two following chords here [Disortion]

(00:00-01:10 min)

e----------------------------|   
B----------------------------|
G----------------------------|
D---11---10------------------|
A---11---10------------------|
E----9----8------------------|

At 00:51 min another guitar part kicks in [Distortion, Wah-Wah effect]


e--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G--------5--5--5--5--------5--5--5--5--------5--5--------5--5--5--5--------5--5--5--5--------5--5--|
D--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A--3-----------------3-----------------3-----------3-----------------3-----------------3-----------|
E--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|


First verse


The first chord is played several times before you go into the single note picking part 
(01:12-1:34 min).
Play this two times.

e------                                         e-----------|
B------                                         B-----------|
G---3--  (slightly palm muted);[clean]  into    G------5----|
D---3--                                         D----5---5--|
A---1--                                         A--3--------|
E------                                         E-----------|


After that the following

e-----------------|
B-----------------|
G---6---into---5--|
D---6----------5--|
A---4----------3--|
E-----------------|


Then there is this second part of the first verse (01:34-01:55 min); [distortion]


e-----------------|
B-----------------|
G--10-------------|  (there are some muted strings between the repeats)
D--11--into--10---|
A--11--------10---|
E---9---------8---|


Then there comes this little octave part.


e-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G-----------------18------------17-----------9--10--12--13----18-------20--18--17--------(slide)--|
D--(Slide into)----x-(6x)--into--x-(12x?)----x---x---x---x-----x-(4x)---x---x---x-(12x?)-(slide)--|
A--(Slide into)---16------------15-----------7---8--10--10----16-------16--16--15--------(slide)--|
E--(Slide into)-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

First Chorus (01:57-02:17 min); [clean, delay+reverb]

Guitar 1 plays the clean part

e---------------------------------------------------------------|
B---------------------------------------------------------------|
G---------------------------------------------------------------|
D---------5-6-5-3-5--5-5-5h6p3-5--6-5-3-------------------------|
A-----6-5-------------------------------6-5-3-1-3--3-3-3h4p1-3--|
E--4------------------------------------------------------------|


e----------3--------3-3-3h4p1-3--3h4p3----------------------------|
B------5-6---6-5-6----------------------5-6-----------------------|
G--5-6--------------------------------------6-5-3-5--5-5-5h6p3-5--|
D-----------------------------------------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------------------------------|


Guitar 2 plays the distorted part (as I said, for the rhythm and repeats, watch the video)


e---------------|
B---------------|
G---------------|
D--11--10-------|
A--11--10---10--|
E---9---8----8--|


Here comes the second verse!


(02:18-02:50)

First part [clean]              [clean;delay]


e---------------    then        e--------------|
B---------------                B--6-------5~--|
G--6---------5--                G--6-(2x)--5~--|
D--6-(into)--5--                D--6-------5~--|
A--4---------3--                A--4-------3~--|
E---------------                E--------------|

e--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

D--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A--3-----------------3-----------------3-----------3-----------------3-----------------3-----------|
E--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|


And before the second chorus there are these little 2.7* (4x) harmonic on the A-string 
(you put your finger
slightly before the third fret and play the harmonic).

Second chorus


(02:52-03:12 min)


(Look up the strumming pattern in the video)


Guitar 1 [distorted]


You play this two times, then this on              and this on

1.+2.                                   1.                      2.

e--------------                         e-----------------      e-----------------|
B--------------                         B-----------------      B-----------------|
G--6--5--3--5--                         G--5--5--6--3--5--      G--5--5--6--3--5--|
D--6--5--1--5--                         D--5--5--5--5--5--      D--x--x--x--x--x--|
A--4--3--1--3--                         A--3--3--3--3--3--      A--3--3--4--1--3--|
E--------------                         E-----------------      E-----------------|


Guitar 2 [disortet with delay]

e----------------------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------------------|
G--/5--7--8--10--12--12h13p10--12~--/12--10--8--7--5--5h6p3--5~--|  (2x)
D----------------------------------------------------------------|
A----------------------------------------------------------------|
E----------------------------------------------------------------|


And here comes the Bridge!

(03:13-04:35)

Guitar 1 [distorted;delay -> tapping part with wah-wah effect]
Guitar 2 [distorted;delay]
Guitar 3 [slightly distorted with a lot of reverb and delay]

So Guitar 3 basically plays the same part til the end of the bridge, this is also the part Brad plays
 on the live version (so hard *cough*).

e--------------------------------------|
B--------------------------------------|
G--------------------------------------|
D--------5~-----------------3~---------|
A--3--3------6--------1--1------3------|
E---------------4~-----------------1~--|

Guitar 1 plays the solo in the bridge and then goes into the tapping part.

First part of the solo


e-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G------5--------3---------------------------------------------------------|
D----5---5----5---5--5--3h5p3/-1--1--0--0--0--1--3--3--3--1--0------------|
A--3--------3---------------------------------------------------3--1--3~--|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------------|


Second part (Ohhh, when they...)

e---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G--5--7--8--/12--12--10--8h10p8--7--/12--12--10--10--8--10~(pinch harmonic on the 10th fret)--|
D---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Third part


(Either you make the slides like me for the first notes, or use a whammy pedal with 1+ Octave,
but then you have to play it on another string).


e---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B--/13--/15--/16--20--20--18--16h18p16--15--15----------15--16--18-18-18--15h16-15------------|
G-----------------------------------------------17--17------------------------------17-15-17--|
D---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|


Straight from the solo you go into the tapping part with the following pattern:

e----------------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------------|
G--17--13--------------19--15-------------17--14-----------|
D----------15-(16x)------------15-(8x)------------15-(8x)--|
A----------------------------------------------------------|
E----------------------------------------------------------|

Guitar 2 basically plays the stuff from the second chorus in the background until the 
transition into the outro:

e--------------------------------------------------------------|
B--------------------------------------------------------------|
G--12b-10-12b--12b-10-12b--/3----------------------------------|
D------------------------------5--5--3h5p3/-1--1--0--0---------|
A-------------------------------------------------------3------|
E----------------------------------------------------------1~--|


Finally the outro:


Guitar 1 [clean; delay+reverb]
Guitar 2 [distortion]

Guitar 2 plays the the same as in the first chorus, you will figure it out.


Guitar plays the following, kinda arabic sounding part.

e-----------------------------------------------|
B------5----5---5-6-5---------------------------|
G--5h6----6---6-------6-5--5-5--5h6p3--5~-(2x)--|
D-----------------------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------------|


e-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-------5-----5-6-8--9-8-6--9-8-6--9-8-6--6-6-6--6h8-6-5--5-5---5h6-5-----------------------|
G---5-6---5-6----------------------------------------------------------6-5--5-5--5h6----5~--|
D------------------------------------------------------------------------------------8------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B--13-12-9-(5x)--------------------------------------------------------|
G----------------13-12-10-(3x)-10~---13-12-10-(5x)-/-5-5--5h6------5~--|     {FIN}
D--------------------------------------------------------------8---5~--|
A------------------------------------------------------------------3~--|
