THE CLASH - ARMAGIDEON TIME (Willie Williams cover)
Tabbed by Wes T. (sh1txxx@f-m.fm)
1/13/2005
=============================================================================


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!
