Pain Of Salvation - Tongue Of God
---------------------------------

From the 2017 album "In The Passing Light Of Day"
Words by Daniel Gildenlow, music by Daniel Gildenlow and Ragnar Zolberg

Transcribed by Travis Lausch

Another really easy song, but not as simple as it seems on first listen. There's a lot
going on with the rhythm guitar, and there is a distinct lead guitar part in the choruses
but I felt it more prudent to get the rhythm guitar parts down. Some of the parts may or may
not be correct, and I made sure to mention each one. The only second guitar part I transcribed
is the ending guitar part, since it's not really clear which one is the "lead" and perhaps
you'd want to play both.
