I have not yet seen Cloud Atlas, but a quick scan of the soundtrack on iTunes revealed some excellent pieces of music, most notably Prelude: The Atlas March and it’s end-credits counterpart, Cloud Atlas End Title.

The Atlas March is played in standard tuning, and is very easy to play. This is a perfect song for beginner guitar players because, despite it’s ease, it sounds sophisticated.

I wholeheartedly believe that simplicity is a virtue, and far more is conveyed from the composer when music is uncomplicated.

I love playing this little piece of music, and I hope you enjoy it too. The tab is available below:
