Hey everybody it's Mike from Guitar Tricks, and in this tutorial I'll be teaching you "Closer To The Edge" as made famous by 30 Seconds To Mars. This is an synth-driven epic modern rock anthem that contains some cool supportive guitar layering.

In the following lessons, we'll explore power chord shapes, triads, and the creative use of a digital delay effect to create cool guitar parts. Tune your guitar down a helf step to play along with this tutorial. We are using a 4/4 time signature at a tempo of 140 bpm.
