THE CLASH - ARMAGIDEON TIME (Willie Williams cover)

=============================================================================

If you want to get the right tone for this song, use reverb, compression, and
chorus.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
VERSE:

For the reggae-style "chucking" sound, mute the strings with the fingering
shown below.

X  X    X
e|-7--7----9----|
G|-7--7----9----|
B|-7--7----9----|
D|-9--9----10---|
A|-9--9----10---|
E|--------------|

Just before Joe starts singing, this is usually played:

e|-----|
G|-----|
B|-----|
D|-7/9-|
A|-----|
E|-----|

The bass also plays this next part, which is divided into two sections.  The
first is only played a couple times in the song and is followed by the other,
which is played throughout most of the non-chorus parts.  It's all done in
palm mutes.

e|---------------------------|-----------------------------|
G|---------------------------|-----------------------------|
B|---------------------------|-----------------------------|
D|-9---9---9-9---------------|-9---9---9-9-----------------|
A|-------------9-9---9---9---|-------------9-9-9---9---9---|
E|---------------------------|-----------------------------|

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
CHORUS:

The chorus riff is just Bm and A chords.  The muted part is also done later
in the song:

X X   X
e|-7---7---5---5---7-7---7---5---5---|
G|-7---7---5---5---7-7---7---5---5---|
B|-7---7---6---6---7-7---7---6---6---|
D|-9---9---7---7---9-9---9---7---7---|
A|-9---9---7---7---9-9---9---7---7---|
E|-----------------------------------|

This is played over top:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-9---------9-11-9----9----------------12-11-9-11-9----9----7/9-|
A|---9-11-12-------------9-11-12--12-----------------12----------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------|

This is a modified version of the above riff played repeatedly near the end
of the song:

e|------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-9--------------------9----------------12-11-9-11-9----9----|
A|---9-11-12-11-9---------9-11-12--12-----------------12------|
E|----------------10------------------------------------------|

And that's it!

About the artist behind Armagideon Time Tab:

The Clash were an English punk rock band, active from 1976 to 1986, part of the original wave of UK punk.[1][2] Along with punk rock, they experimented with reggae, funk, rap, dub, rock and roll and rockabilly among other roots musics.[3][4] For most of their recording career, The Clash consisted of Joe Strummer (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Mick Jones (lead guitar), Paul Simonon (bass) and Nicky "Topper" Headon (drums, percussion).[5] The group disbanded in early 1986, owing to lack of creative control and the loss of Headon in 1982 and Jones in 1983 due to internal friction.

The Clash were a major success in the UK from the release of their debut album. Their third album, London Calling, released in the UK in December 1979, brought them popularity in the United States when it came out there the following year. It received wide critical acclaim; a decade later Rolling Stone magazine declared it the best album of the 1980s.[6]

The Clash's style and rebellious attitude, along with their music, had a far-reaching influence on rock, alternative rock in particular.[7] Their record label's A&R director dubbed them "The Only British Band That Matters," which fans picked up and transformed into "The Only Band That Matters". In January 2003 they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.[8] The band wanted to play at the event, but were prevented by Joe Strummer's death in December 2002. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked The Clash #30 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[9]
