Pain Of Salvation - Reasons tab
-------------------------------

From the 2017 album "In The Passing Light Of Day"

Transcribed by Travis Lausch


Pretty simple song on the whole, a lot of tricky sort of shifting rhythms and even some polymetric stuff.
A few sections of this tab are more "best guesses", like the rhythm guitar parts during the choruses and
the verses, and I didn't bother transcribing the chaos at the end of the song. In the music video, there are
three guitarists (Daniel and Ragnar, and D2 is playing a 6-string Mayones as well), but I could only really 
make out two distinct guitar parts and transcribed it as such. The Mayones model D2 is using in the video has 
MIDI capability, so it's possible that he'd just use it to play keyboard pads and such.

Tuning: A E A D G B e (7-string drop-A tuning)

Then just descend into chaos with the riff. Things like pausing the first chord with feedback, 
and sweeping back on the harmonic at the 3rd fret into the riff. After a few repeats, it's hard to make out
exactly what's going on with it.
