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 :).

Intro:
Guitar 1, clean with chorus/flange-effects.
Guitar 2, silent.
