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.
