A|  This little interlude is one of the most mysterious things in Linkin Park's live concert folklore. It was randomly played by Brad, Rob, and Phoenix at the June 2nd, 2001 Rock Im Park show in Germany (the same concert where LP was filling in for Slipknot, who cancelled their show at the last minute), in what sounded sort of like an improv jam, but it also seemed like the three of them knew their parts a little TOO well, so it's long been suspected that this is part of an unreleased early Linkin Park demo, possibly the long-fabled "Pictureboard" track. The title "Be Yourself" was given to this piece by fans, due to Chester repeatedly singing that phrase over the ending of it (it's been erroneously called "In Yourself" for years, because apparently people don't have ears or something...). This interlude was subsequently played again at two more shows on June 3rd and June 8th, only to disappear as suddenly as it appeared! No further information about this piece has surfaced over the years...anyway, Brad's guitar part in this is very interesting, it's played fingerstyle and uses some odd intervals. I know the notes are right, but I'm just guessing on the shapes/positionings. There are a lot of different ways to play these intervals, and none of them are particularly easy, so I just picked one that made sense to me. There's really only one part to it that repeats numerous times (the number of repeats varies depending on the performance), and it ends on an Eb note at the 7th fret. There are a couple notes that I put in parentheses, either because they're not always played, or they're played very softly.
