Hey everyone! First update of the new year here, and I've posted a new guitar for the first time in a while. It's a Taylor acoustic that Brad used during his commencement speech for the UCLA class of 2009. I've been meaning to add this guitar to the site for a long time, but tracking down info on it was incredibly difficult. Better late than never, I suppose.
I've also been posting a LOT of tab updates lately, so here's a big list for you:
Blackout (Renholder Remix)
Where'd You Go? (SOB Remix)
Across the Line (Alternate Mix)
Shadow of the Day (Alternate Mix)
Heavy (Disero Remix)
The Young and the Hopeless (Remixed by Mr. Hahn)
Rhinestone (Zomba Sampler Version)
Blackout - There's another guitar part in the breakdown that doubles the "stab" chords with distorted single notes.
Across the Line - There was something off with the doubling, I think it was when the octave guitar first comes in during the bridge, I had it doubled when it isn't on the first line (it's been a while and I can't remember).
Be Yourself - Updated some chord positions.
As you can see, I've finished the "Misc. Linkin Park Songs" section and made a lot of headway on the "Other Linkin Park-Related Songs" section as well! I'm actually at a point where I'm mostly finished with studio material (that's currently on the site anyway, I may take a stab at some other stuff like Hybrid Theory-era demos that weren't officially released but have been floating around for a long time), so I'm looking ahead at the monumental task of finally updating all the live versions...Be Yourself was a first taste of that. Still focusing on studio material before I really dive into that stuff though.
Obviously my plans of uploading regularly on YouTube didn't pan out for long. I went on vacation in the middle of December and I just haven't gotten back into things since then. My teaching job has really grown lately, so I pretty much spend my days taking care of my daughter and my evenings/weekends working. It's REALLY hard for me to block out a few hours of time to record anything (tabs are much easier because I can work on them a little at a time and being interrupted isn't a big deal). I don't get anywhere close to enough sleep as it is. But I'm still planning on doing it as I'm able, especially once I finally get a new nut installed on my SE 277.
Hope everyone's first few weeks of the decade are going well!
