Crawling

Linkin Park


Artist: Linkin Park. Song: Crawling. Album: Hybrid Theory.
Tabed by: Kenneth Carlson
Tuning: Drop-D, all strings down one half-note. (Low-to-High = Db-ab-db-gb-Bb-eb)
DISCLAIMER: I made this version because i found a lot of flawed tabs out there. Im not claiming 100% acuracy here, but i do claim better acuracy than some of the other tabs ive seen. This tab also tries to give you a feel of the timing, and not just which notes to play in what order... This has been done 100% by ear, so any comments or corections are welcome indeed.
NOTE: This song can easily be played on a regular Drop-D tuning, since the lower C# is only used as a base note in a single chord during the chorus. Just move everything down half a note and ignore the notes in paranthesis :).
