Numb Tab

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
			     Numb - Linkin Park
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Karleen Heong
Email: heonjo@attglobal.net

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

This song is specially tabbed for either a one man band, or two in a 
band. For a one man band, it's best to have an electric guitar with 
distortion pedal, if you want to play it acoustic, it's fine too. 
For 2 man band, one guitar with clean, 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:

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

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.A one man band is quite difficult, and I want 
to be in a rock band in the future. If you have comments, queries, 
dramas, or anything let me know :)

Thanks for viewing this tab-actually my first-Karleen email:heonjo@attglobal.net
