The Bio:

Old-school hip-hop, traditional classic rock, and spooling electronic
vibes were the initial factors behind the building of the alternative
metal band, Linkin Park. The band’s southern Californian musical roots
were also an underlying basis for their music as they had formed a
tight friendship while still in high school. They just released, along
with Jay-Z, DefJam CEO and rapper, a collaborative disc that compiles
their music along with his music. It totally fuses two genres together,
which was also done originally by Aerosmith and Run D.M.C.

Intro

This is actually a piano part, but it’s transcribed here for the guitar:

You will begin the first part by placing your 2nd finger on the second
fret on the “D” string. Play the open notes on the “B” string
and proceed to the next measure. Next you will be using your 1st finger
on the fourth fret on the “D” string and your 2nd finger
on the fifth fret on the “A” string. Play those notes together,
and then just pick the fourth fret out until you get to the open notes.
For the next measure you just need to move your fingers in the same
arrangement to the second and third frets on the same strings. Then
end this measure by playing the open notes. The last measure is identical
to the second measure.
