     		D#-------0-1----------------------
     		B------0-------0------0----------
     		F#-----------0--2------0---------

     		D#-------0-1----------------------
     		B------0-------0------0----------
     		F#-----------0--2---3---0---------
     		C#---3------------0-------2-----
     		G#------------------------------
    

    I play E chord in open C position capoed 4th fret behind the arpeggio

    sound clip:

    I know guitarists who will play this without the capo in the same positions over the 4th fret, but i cannot manage it without the capo. I can only speculate how rahmans guitarist did it, the E chord sound in the original record sounds to be E in the C position, which led me to use the capo.

    jay ,thanks for the tabs and mp3..unfortunately i don't have
    a capo right now,so i didnt tried it yet..but heard the mp3..
    it was good...
    how did u figured it out "it was an E chord in C possition capoed
    on 4th fret" You must be having a golden ear... :nw:
    also heard "in the end" mp3 u posted...sounds cool...never knew
    harmonics could be this much fun...im downloading the original song
    by LInkin park right now...
    keep up the good work

    I must say the guitar tone is the coolest bit tweaking i have ever done on my Korg AX1G. I use a simple mexican fender strat with the pickup selector at postion 1.5 (or 2 these days where u have 5 positions) and i play it un capoed, to get the tone.
    i did some post processing to clean some buzz from the pickups..., and EQed my acoustic guitar track, and softened it a lil to give that 'angel' tone thats the only studio magic i did.

    jay
    You have cool gears man...i wish i had something like that,atlest a decent
    elc gtr.I have a givson elec guitar which is the worst of its kind and a
    korg AX100G.then i have an imported (sammick) classical gtr which was very
    cool when i bought it...but it started to change its tone and the strings
    r resonating too much now..now i wonder why i bought it,cos classical is
    something which u have to take it very seriously..im tryin to sel it off now..

    sorry, i wasnt bragging.. au contraire.. i was trying to say u can achieve this sound with minimal gear.. the mexican strat i bought froma pawn shop for 45$, and the AX1G is the lowest end processor u can get.. (i dont have ax100 or those hifi stomp boxes)

    jay being said that,i again looked at my post,mmmm.. ya its kind of
    bragging.. ;) but i didn't mean that way.
    you are right AX100G is a good processor..but the guitar im
    having is no match to that...leave all that..
    if u have finished transcibing "sanwariya" please post it...
