Should I Stay or Should I Go – The Clash
Bpm=113
Key of D , 4/4 time
Uploaded by Pablo Clark G. Dobarganes

All the other tabs I have seen are wrong because they simply don’t fit into the 12-bar
structure of the song. I do not take entire credit for this tab as I didn’t originally
it, I am just writing it down for you guys to play The Clash as good as you can. The
in the recording has a bit of a distortion to it but if played without it, it sounds
normal. I can assure you this is exactly as it is played in the record.
