In this In The End guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play all of Brad Delson’s guitar parts to this Linkin Park classic in addition to showing you how to play the instantly recognizable piano chord progression on the guitar.

As with many Linkin Park songs, the tuning is dropped “C#” tuning. Those notes are, starting from the 6th string C# G# C# F# A# D#.

The opening piano chord progression works very well on the guitar and is not very difficult to play either. Make sure you let all of the notes ring together to help recreate the sound of a piano with the sustain pedal depressed.

When the verse begins, we have our the first actual guitar riff which contains only natural harmonics. If you aren’t very good at playing harmonics cleanly, this riff will be a great exercise to practice them.

When the chorus kicks in, so does the distortion with the one-finger power chords playing across strings 4-6. The harmonics played in the verse also continue over the chorus albeit with distortion as well. If you have a second guitarist to play with you can each play one of those riffs together to sound like the original recording.

Watch for the parts of the chorus riff that change slightly at the very end of each time it is played.

The bridge section uses the same riff as the chorus. I hope you guys enjoy learning this fun one from Linkin Park!

RIP Chester!
