Pain Of Salvation - Idiocracy

Transcribed by Travis Lausch


It was actually a more difficult song to transcribe than I thought, as the intro riffs
two guitars playing what one guitar usually could, as well as the intense layering of
in the verses and choruses. I basically tabbed out what I could, so apologies if 
vital is missing. I know I kinda skipped the ending with the acoustic guitar solo and
but it's pretty buried in the piano, so I couldn't quite pick it all out.

Played on seven string guitar tuned (low to high) A E A D G B E

There's probably a million more layers of guitar, but they're buried under vocals, bass and percussion.

with variations on the rhythm I'm too lazy to tab out. Outro is all piano and a bit of acoustic guitar soloing. It's all based in the A minor boxes at the fifth and tenth frets, and is quite buried beneath the piano, making it to transcribe at this time.
