General Smuts Tab
This is my version of General Smuts by The Libertines. It's actually a very simple song 
to play. If you think somethings wrong, please comment and I'll be happy to change it.

Bass riff

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------4--2-------------------------------------------------------|
A|--2--0---------------5----------------------------------------------------|
E|--------3---2-----------5-------------------------------------------------|

(if you like you can play the following chords over this bass riff B(7) 
A(5) G(3) F#(2) F#(9) E(7) D(5) 
A(2) all barre chords, the numbers behind the chord represent the frets I play them on)

Riff guitar 1:
Notes are picked like 1e 2e etc, the hammer on isn't really a hammer on, but the first 
count you play the 2 on the g-string and the 4 on the "e" of the "1e" (I hope you get 
what I mean), didn't know how to tab it otherwise. Then bend 4 up and bring it down again.

Guitar 2 plays:

B    F#

Well life is short
We spend all our time
Just fucking fighting my friend
Well a soul can't be bought
Not with a cheap rhyme
And I know that when I die
I'm gonna go down with the general
Up with the general smuts

Well I've been stuck in a hole
And it's dark down here
Every time I've thought I've seen the light
Well it just fades and disappears
Just fades and disappears
Just fades and disappears
Just fades and disappears

I've seen a face in the shadows
And I've said "how do you do?"
And I've been living in this horror show
Which just never ends
I'm gonna go down with the general
Back to the general smuts
I'm going down with the general
Up with the general smuts

Fades and disappears
I've seen a face in the shadows
And I've said "how do you do?"
And I've been living in this horror show
For much too long
I'm going down with the general
Back to the general
Down with the general
Up with the general smuts

About the artist behind General Smuts Tab:

The Libertines were an English rock band formed in London in 1997 and active until 2004. Part of what was described as the garage rock revival movement of that time, the band was centred on the song-writing partnership and 'chemistry'[1] of Pete Doherty (vocals/rhythm guitar), Carl BarĂ¢t (vocals/lead guitar), John Hassall (bass) and Gary Powell (drums).

The band gained some notoriety[2] in the early 2000s. Although initially their mainstream success was limited, their profile grew culminating in a #2 single and #1 album in the UK Charts. In December 2004, their self-titled second album was voted the second best album of the year by NME. Both of their full-length LPs were produced by Mick Jones, of the British punk band The Clash.

However, the band's music was often eclipsed by its internal conflicts, many of which stemmed from Doherty's addictions to crack cocaine and heroin, ultimately resulting in the breakup of the band. The members of The Libertines have gone on to new bands, with varying degrees of commercial and critical success.
