    HEART OF THE MATTER - The Libertines
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The song was just released but I've had it for some time now so here it is:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=14&v=gSRCwI6FJsQ
    If you're interested in some of the guitar leads throughout the song they'll be listed at the bottom.
    However, since they don't exactly play the same patterns throughout the song, you'll have to listen to the
    song carefully to play it exactly as the song is recorded.

    EmAmBEmAmB
