5/13: Tab Updates

Posted on May 13, 2018 at 3:20 AM

Here's a big tabs update, although it isn't necessarily one with a lot of "big" changes in terms of actually playing the songs, mostly just accounting for the correct number of guitar parts and making sure multiple versions of the same song are consistent in their notation. Regardless, here's the list of affected songs:


-With You: Guitar count increased from 3 to 5 to account for typical Hybrid Theory quadruple-tracked rhythm guitars.


-Points of Authority: Guitar count increased from 6 to 9 to account for typical Hybrid Theory quadruple-tracked rhythm guitars, and to note that the backwards guitar sample near the end of the song is double-tracked. The quadruple-tracked parts only appear in the choruses, with the little lead-in to the chorus at the end of each verse (as well as the first chord of the last chorus) only being played by two guitars.


-Runaway: Guitar count increased from 5 to 7 to account for typical Hybrid Theory quadruple-tracked rhythm guitars, slight changes to end of bridge.


-By Myself: Guitar count increased from 3 to 5 to account for typical Hybrid Theory quadruple-tracked rhythm guitars. Also changed the notation regarding the harmonics, as they're actually played by all four of the main guitar tracks.


-In the End: Guitar count increased from 4 to 7 to account for typical Hybrid Theory quadruple-tracked rhythm guitars, as well as the fact that the distorted harmonics in the choruses are double-tracked. Also made some changes to the end of the bridge and the notation of the feedback at the end of the song.


-A Place for My Head: Guitar count increased from 4 to 6 to account for typical Hybrid Theory quadruple-tracked rhythm guitars. Spots played by only two of the rhythm guitars include the transition from the end of the first verse into the chorus, and the pre-chorus that follows the second verse.


-Forgotten: Guitar count increased from 4 to 6 to account for typical Hybrid Theory quadruple-tracked rhythm guitars. The harmonics in the rap chorus are only played by two of the guitars, as are the muted strums leading into the outro. Also made significant changes to the last line of the bridge, and noted an error made my Guitar 2 near the end of the song where it plays the muted strums that would normally lead into the outro one repeat too early.


-Pushing Me Away: The file data shows that I updated this one, but I can't find any changes, so I think I just updated the description slightly and/or fixed a typo somewhere.


-Easier to Run: Fixed a couple typos.


-Dirt Off Your Shoulder/Lying from You: Guitar count increased from 2 to 4 to account for proper layering, consistent with the Meteora recording of Lying from You.


-Jigga What/Faint: Guitar count increased from 4 to 5 to account for doubling of the lead guitar part (I forgot to update this when I updated the Meteora version of Faint a while back).


-Points of Authority/99 Problems/One Step Closer: Guitar count is now 8 (I think it was 7 before), and all layering of guitar parts is consistent with how they appear on their Hybrid Theory counterparts.


-Points of Authority (Crystal Method Remix): Updated the description a bit.


-Points of Authority (Demo): Guitar count increased from 5 to 6 to account for the backwards guitar sample near the end of the song being doubled.


-Now I See: Guitar count increased from 3 to 5 to account for typical Hybrid Theory quadruple-tracked rhythm guitars (same changes as Hybrid Theory version of With You).



Phew, big list! Still working on editing video for this week's Youtube cover (this one's a BIG project!), and I've still got some guitar updates to add to the site. Those should all be up by Tuesday at the latest.
