The Width of A Circle
Album:The Man Who Sold The World (1970)
Lyrics & Music by David Bowie
Here is one of the best Bowie songs there is. The song was transcribed
listening to the live versions
from "David Live" and "Ziggy Stardust-The Motion Picture" but I think
it's pretty much the same to the
album version. If there is anyone interested in transcribing the
solos, please let me know.
