Light of My Life

Light of My Life is a film directed and written by Casey Affleck. It’s a post-pandemic drama – as a plague has wiped out most of the world’s female population. A father and daughter (one of the last females on earth) live on the outskirts of civilization. The daughter is disguised as a boy, while the father struggles to protect and defend her from newfound threats. 

Daniel Hart is one of my new favorite composers. I first heard his music in A Ghost Story also starring Casey Affleck.

Gear used

For Light of My Life, I used my Cordoba C7 Cedar: a beautiful sounding but relatively inexpensive guitar. You can find a current list of my gear here.

The guitar tab is two pages long and played straight through. You’ll take care to repeat the early section within the brackets as indicated in the guitar tab. I recommend this song for intermediate guitar players and up.

Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:

Light of My Life is played in an Open D Tuning: D A D F# A D. I then put a capo on the 2nd fret.
