Prelude: The Atlas March was one of the first pieces of music that I ever posted – way back in 2012. While I’ve never seen the film, I still love the music, and it was time for a redo.

The guitar tab for this piece is beautifully written across a single page. It very easy to play — and suitable for beginner guitar players. Happy playing :) The guitar tab is available below:

The guitar tab is one long passage. I repeat the passage 3x, but feel free to play it less — or even more.
