    Hi there I am trying to work out the bass part for the Clash's Clampdown. Now I thought I had this right and even submitted the tab to "ultimate tab.com but upon reflection I don't think that it was right and I would like to see if anyone out there knows the part or would be up for reviewing my submission.

    The part I am doubting is only the first half of the verse (the A part) below - can anyone double check it for me?

    PS I have lots of other Clash tabs available but most are on the web somewhere.
