The Inner Light - The Beatles 
 
Tabbed by Adam Bishop 
 
Tuning - Eb Bb Eb Eb Eb Eb 
 
There is no guitar in this song so I just made up that tuning.  All you need are 
the top three  
strings anyway.  The actual instruments in this song, according to the book 
Revolution in the  
Head by Ian MacDonald, are a harmonium, a flute, a shehnai, a tabla, a pakhavaj, 
and a  
sarod.  I looked these up on the Internet, and it looks like the sarod is used 
for the parts I've  
tabbed out, with the harmonium mixing in with it to get the constant Eb notes.  
The tabla  
and pakhavaj are percussion instruments, and the shehnai and flute are of course 
the wind  
instruments you hear.

Without going out of my door (riff 1) 
I can know all things on Earth (riff 1) 
Without looking out of my window (riff 1) 
I can know the ways of heaven (riff 2)

The farther one travels 
The less one knows 
The less one really knows ...
