30 Seconds To Mars - Closer To The Edge

Tabbed by: Oceanic_815

Tuning: Standard

This tab should be 99% accurate. Listen to the song carefully as some guitar parts are 
very hard to hear.
I did a guitar cover and uploaded it on youtube, you can check it out here:

Intro:

chords of the chorus palm-muted.)
