Welcome to Throwback Thursday’s where I teach you a classic hit from the last 4-5 decades! By request I’ll be teaching more linkin park following recent events. This week’s lesson is a Shadow Of The Day Guitar Tutorial from Linkin Park! This song is just beautifully written. It’s incredibly easy for beginners and has some great lead lines for those starting out.

At the end of the video i’ll be playing through the entirety of #shadowoftheday with a vocal track on top for you to play along to. Enjoy! Like this #shadowoftheday video by #linkinpark and subscribe to the channel for more videos in the future! #chesterbennington #rip

[Verse]

Em           D/F#             C
I close both locks below the window
Em           D/F#            C
I close both blinds and turn away
Em           D/F#              C
Sometimes so-lutions aren't so simple
Em             D/F#           C
Sometimes good bye's the only way


[Pre Chorus]

        G        Am             Em       C
And the sun        will set for you   
    G       Am             Em       C
The sun       will set for you  


[Chorus]

        G             D
And the shadow of the day
     Em                   C
Will embrace the world in grey
        G        Am             Em       C
And the sun        will set for you   


[Verse]

Em           D/F#            C
In cards and flowers on your window
Em               D/F#             C
Your friends all plead for you to stay
Em           D/F#               C      
Sometimes be-ginnings aren't so simple
Em             D/F#           C
Sometimes good bye's the only way


[Pre Chorus]

        G        Am             Em       C
And the sun        will set for you   
    G       Am             Em       C
The sun       will set for you  

[Chorus]

        G             D
And the shadow of the day
     Em                   C
Will embrace the world in grey
        G        Am             Em       C
And the sun        will set for you
