                             Numb - Linkin Park
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Karleen Heong
Email: the_aurora_australis@hotmail.com

Tuning: Drop D down 1/2 a step
SO: 6th(lowest)=Db 5th=Ab 4th=Db 3rd=Gb 2nd=Bb 1st(highest)=Eb

This song is tabbed for either one guitar or two. For one, it's best to play electric 
with distortion pedal, if you want to play it acoustic, it's fine too.
For two guitars, play one clean (no distortion), the other with distortion.

Note: Seeing that Linkin Park is a 6 person band, this version tabbed
out is obviously a little different. I've put in a little bit of my
style in it with different strumming rhythms, just to make it a
little more interesting for live performances, not a full band with
all instruments.

If using a distortion pedal:
Level=1/2 tone=2/3 bottom=2/3 distortion=full gain boost=1/2


| ()  harmonic
| *  Palm mute


Here it is:


[Intro] -w/distortion

Eb|------------------------15---18--17--------------18--17---------|
Bb|-(15)--------15--18--15---------------15--18--15--------18------|
Gb|-fade in--------------------------------------------------------|
Db|----------------------------------------------------------------|
Ab|----------------------------------------------------------------|
Db|----------------------------------------------------------------|

Intro cont. w/dist
Eb|----------------------------------------------------------------|
Bb|----------------------------------------------------------------|
Gb|----------------------------------------------------------------|
Db|-5--5--5-5-5--1--1--1-1-1--8--8--8-8-8--3--3--3-3-3-------------|X2
Ab|-5--5--5-5-5--1--1--1-1-1--8--8--8-8-8--3--3--3-3-3-------------|
Db|-5--5--5-5-5--1--1--1-1-1--8--8--8-8-8--3--3--3-3-3-------------|
   My way of strummming the chords, if you dislike it,
use the main chords as your basis


[Verse] 1-w/o distortion
Riff 1/2
    I'm tired of being what you want me to be
Eb|----------------------------------------------------------------|
Bb|----------------------------------------------------------------|
Gb|----------------------------------------------------------------|
Db|-5------------5------5---5---1------------1-1-1-----------------|
Ab|-5------------5------5---5---1------------1-1-1-----------------|
Db|-5------------5------5---5---1------------1-1-1-----------------|
   
Riff 2/2
    Feeling so faithless, lost under the surface
Eb|----------------------------------------------------------------|
Bb|----------------------------------------------------------------|
Gb|----------------------------------------------------------------|
Db|-8--------------8-8-8------3------------3-3-3-------------------|
Ab|-8--------------8-8-8------3------------3-3-3-------------------|
Db|-8--------------8-8-8------3------------3-3-3-------------------|
   

   Repeat this strumming pattern for the rest of the verse:

   Don't know what you're expecting of me-Riff 1/2
   Put under the pressure, of walking in your shoes-Riff 2/2
   (caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow)-Riff 1/2
   Every step that I take is another mistake to you-Riff 2/2,
   (Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertwo)-Riff 1/2


[Chorus]-w/dist
  I've become so numb, I can't feel you there, I've become so tired,
                                                                    so much more
Eb|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
Bb|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
Gb|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
Db|5--------------1----------------------8---------------------3----|
Ab|5--------------1----------------------8---------------------3----|
Db|5--------------1----------------------8---------------------3----|

   a-ware, I'm becoming this, all I want to do, is be more like me,
Eb|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
Bb|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
Gb|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
Db|5------------------1-------------------8-------------------3-----|
Ab|5------------------1-------------------8-------------------3-----|
Db|5------------------1-------------------8-------------------3-----|

  and be less like you
Eb|-------------------|
Bb|-------------------|
Gb|-------------------|
Db|----------------5--|
Ab|----------------5--|
Db|----------------5--|



[Verse 2] -w/o dist
Can't you see that you're smothering me-Riff 1/2
Holding too tightly, afraid to lose control-Riff 2/2
'Cause everything that you thought I would be-Riff 1/2
Has fallen apart, right in front of you-Riff 2/2
(Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow)-1/2
Every step that I take, is another mistake to you-2/2
(Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow)-1/2
And every second I waste, is more than I can take-2/2


[Chorus] -with distortion-this time add a strumming pattern to the chords

  and be less like you (instead of 555)
Eb|-------------------------|
Bb|-------------------------|
Gb|-------------------------|
Db|-----------------1--1----|
Ab|-----------------1--1----|
Db|-----------------1--1----|
 


[Bridge] -w/dist

     And I know, I may end     up  f-a-i-l-i-n-g   too, But I know, you were
Eb|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Bb|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Gb|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Db|-1--1-3--3--3-3--5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-8-8-8-8-0-0-0-0-1--1-1-1---3--3--3---3--|
Ab|-1--1-3--3--3-3--5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-8-8-8-8-0-0-0-0-1--1-1-1---3--3--3---3--|
Db|-1--1-3--3--3-3--5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-8-8-8-8-0-0-0-0-1--1-1-1---3--3--3---3--|

   Just like me, with someone disappointed in you      * * *
Eb|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Ab|0---------0----------------0----0----------0----0---0-0-0----------------|
Db|0---------0----------------0----0----------0----0---0-0-0----------------|


[Chorus] -w/dist-play chords repeatingly eg.-5-5-5-5-|
                                            -5-5-5-5-|
                                            -5-5-5-5-|

[Outro] -w/dist play chords in your own style, add palm muting
I've become so numb, I can't feel you there,-Riff 1/2
tired of being what you want me to be,riff-2/2
I've become so numb, I can't feel you there,riff 1/2
tired of being what you want me to be-riff 2/2

Guitar outro-w/o dist

Db|-5--5--5-5-5-1--1--1-1-1-8--8--8-8-8-3--3--3-3-3-0-----1-----1-----0-|

And it's finally finished! Oh, wait, the order:
Intro
Verse 1
Chorus
Verse 2
Chorus
Bridge
Chorus
Outro
Guitar outro

That's it. It took a long while to figure out how to actally tab the
rhythms and strumming patterens out, but once again if you don't like
them or can't understand the strumming, you can make your own strumming
pattern. Use the chords as your basis to the song. Put your own icing
on the cake if need be.If you have comments, queries, dramas, or anything let me know :)

Thanks for viewing this tab-actually my first
