Artist: The Clash
Song:   London Calling
Album:  London Calling
Tuning: Standart (EADGBE)
Tempo:  Moderately Fast (144)

First of all I'm not so good with english so excuse me.

O.K, this song has 5 guitars:

Guitar 1: Rythm w/distortion
Guitar 2: Lead  w/distortion
Guitar 3: Rythm w/heavy reverb 
(You can barely hear it because of the reverb)
Guitar 4: Solo w/distortion (Backwards Guitar)
Guitar 5: Solo w/distortion (Backwards Guitar)

I didn't transcribed all of the guitars because
it's alot of work and I'm lazy.
I transcribed only what I play which is 
the rythm part, somewhere between Guitars 1 and 3.
