What’s up? This is Austin Kritzer of Paradigm for freeandeasy.com and I’m here to show you how to play “Numb” by Linkin Park. You may have to excuse my tune today. It’s being process through a Line 6 GuitarPort. I love Line 6 stuff, however, it is a computer based program, you know our computer based amplifier I should say. And my computer is this scrap. I will endorse Line 6 to the day I die, but dealt not so much.
That being said, please excuse if it cuts out. I’ll play the ref until the computer catches up. And, it allows me to play the whole thing so where you can hear it and it sounds good so you have something to practice with or something to hear. With that being said, here’s the song.
Songs will start a little piano intro, [Demonstration] that little thing. And the song is really easy. It’s a drop D, I forgot to mention that. If you don’t have to tune your guitar drop D, just tuner, between your low E down, whole step to D. Also, you can tune it by playing the 7th fret on the E string and open on the E string [Demonstration] and as I tune.
Anyway, so it’ll opens up a little piano intro and when the guitar comes in, it’s a little easy ref and I’ll play it for you. Basically, it sounds like this [Demonstration]. So as you can see, it’s pretty easy. When you’re in drop D, you can play a whole power chord just using one finger which is canonize. But basically it starts out on 4th fret. So 4th fret on the E, A and D strings and you’re going to be playing these three strings the whole time during this ref and as probably during the whole song.
So when I say 4th fret, just are the E string, A string and D string [Demonstration], and that the whole chorus. The guitar player doesn’t sing anything or doesn’t play anything. Well, Chester singing during the verses and that’s the whole chorus. So, if you didn’t get the first, it’s [Demonstration] and that’s everything.
The only other part in the song is the bridge and basically it goes like this [Demonstration]. It goes back in the chorus right there at the end. But it goes [Demonstration] and then back to the chorus, which is the thing I just showed you earlier. And that’s the entire song, very easy. You know you can play with full band, definitely a crowd pleaser. I’ve also checkout the acoustic version. It’s a little bit more full I guess.
But, as I play the song, if you have any other request or suggest or things you want to learn how to do or how to play, feel free to shoot us an email or shoot me an email.
