By popular demand, welcome to this Let Her Go Guitar Tutorial by Passenger! I’ve finally done it! This is probably the most requested song I’ve had but because of its complexities I wanted to make sure I took the time to make the video as useful as possible and also to show simpler methods of playing that tricky intro. In the video itself i’ll be covering 2 different ways of playing the song. When passenger plays the song live he tends to stick to just fingerpicking. The studio recorded version has a combination of the two though.

  1. – Fingerpicked version
  2. – Strummed Version

At the end of the video i’ll have a full play-through of the studio version which uses a combination of the 2. I also have a guest vocalist singing on top for context, she’s a fellow you-tuber. Check out her youtube channel below 🙂

[Chorus]
                       F                       C
Well you only need the light when it's burning low
              G                       Am
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
               F                           C       G
Only know you love her when you let her go
                      F                        C
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
              G                        Am
Only hate the road when you're missin  home
               F                         C
Only know you love her when you've let her go
G
  And you let her go

[Instrumental]
Am   F   G   Em
Am   F   G

[Verse 1]
Am                            F
Staring at the bottom of your glass
        G                            Em
Hoping one day you will make a dream last
               Am               F          G
The dreams come slow and they go so fast
    Am                          F
You see her when you close your eyes
      G                           Em
Maybe one day you will understand why
               Am           F         G
Everything you touch surely dies

[Chorus]
                      F                       C
But you only need the light when it's burning low
              G                       Am
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
               F                           C       G
Only know you love her when you let her go
                      F                        C
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
              G                        Am
Only hate the road when you're missin  home
               F                         C       G
Only know you love her when you've let her go

[Verse 2]
Am                            F
Staring at the ceiling in the dark
         G                     Em
Same old empty feeling in your heart
           Am                 F       G
Love comes slow and it goes so fast
         Am                      F
Well you see her when you fall asleep
                G                  Em
But to never to touch and never to keep
                          Am
Because you loved her too much
                  F          G
And you dived too deep

[Chorus]
                       F                       C
Well you only need the light when it's burning low
              G                       Am
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
               F                           C       G
Only know you love her when you let her go
                      F                        C
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
              G                         Am
Only hate the road when you're missin'  home
               F                         C         G
Only know you love her when you've let her go

[Bridge]
                Am
And you let her go
      F     G
Ooooo ooooo oooooo
                Am
And you let her go
        F     G
Ooooooo ooooo ooooo
                Am         F    G   Em
And you let her go
Am    F    G

[Chorus]
                          F                       C
Because you only need the light when it's burning low
              G                       Am
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
               F                           C       G
Only know you love her when you let her go
                      F                        C
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
              G                         Am
Only hate the road when you're missin'  home
               F                         C
Only know you love her when you've let her go

[Chorus]
                          F                     C
Because you only need the light when it burning low
              G                       Am
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
               F                           C       G
Only know you love her when you let her go
N.C.
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low

Only hate the road when you're missin  home

Only know you love her when you've let her go

And you let her go
