Written by F.Hibbert

This is my favorite clash cover, I’m a huge fan of The Maytals but I reckon this versions

better…I haven’t bothered writing out the rhythm but it’s not hard to figure out…

Intro

E--------------------------------------|

B---9/10-10--9-9-9---7-7-7---9/10-10---|

G---8/9--9---9-9-9---7-7-7---8/9--9----|

D---6/7--7---9-9-9---7-7-7---6/7--7----|

A------------7-7-7---5-5-5-------------|

E--------------------------------------|

A E D A

One guitar keeps playing those chords while the other guitar plays this solo over the top

E---8b9--12--9-7------------9-----|

B-----------------9-10-7--7---10--|

G---------------------------------|

D---------------------------------|

A---------------------------------|

E---------------------------------|

After that both guitars play the chords from the intro. One plays it with an upbeat ska

rhythm the other plays this:

E-------------------------------|

B—10--10---9-9---7---7--10-10---|

G--9---9---9-9---7---7---9--9---|

D--7---7---9-9---7---7---7--7---|

A----------7-7---5-9-5----------|

E-------------------------------|

A E D A

It’s practically the same as the intro except with that little note between the two

D chords and it has a different rhythm.

Then it goes to the aaaahh-aaaahh bit

E----------------------|

B----10---9-------7----|

G-----9---9---6---7----|

D-----7---9---7---7----|x3

A---------7---7---5----|

E-------------5--------|

A E A D

Then for the verse it goes back to the original riff at the beginning and the chords never

really change throughout the rest of the song.

The only different bit is when it has a small solo just before it goes in to the ‘When

it drops you’re gonna feel it’ bit:

E--------7-8b9---12-9-7--17---------------9-12--17-12--9-7--14-------------|

B---7-10------------------17—13b14-10---10---------------------15----12b13-|

G-----------------------------------------------------------------14-------|

D--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

A--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

E--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

So that’s it really….any questions or corrections or summing just email me at deadgrandmother@hotmail.com
