About this tab version
Only difference from the actual song is transcribing the mellotron part in the end for guitar. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Pain Of Salvation - In The Passing Light Of Day
From the 2017 album "In The Passing Light Of Day"
Words and music by Daniel Gildenlow and Ragnar Zolberg
Transcribed by Travis Lausch

Notes

This is a long, sprawling song. There are a lot of things going on here, 
so I'm going to do my best to keep the tab fairly concise. There's really nothing
too complex about the song, though. It's all pretty straightforward and easy to play.

There are some pretty wide stretches, though. These may look weird or even wrong in the 
tab, but these were figured out from watching Daniel Gildenlow himself playing it, and 
he happens to be an expert on the subject ;)
As always, here's a link to a video of me playing it:
