---------------------------------------------| Song: Moment of Surrender | Artist: U2 | Album: No Line on the Horizon | ---------------------------------------------| Tabbed by: Kyle Lords ([email protected])| ---------------------------------------------| Note: The sections have notes above them, but all sections are tabbed directly beneath. There are a lot of sour-sounding notes in the bassline of this song. I've strained over this song for quite some time to be sure I'm not crazy, but I still may very well be, so if you can't take it, a good alternative is often a half or whole-step down from the "sour" minor third. About the Intro: In this song, the bass is faded in with synth/strings/organ/whatever they use. However, for practical purposes I'm starting this tab where the drums begin (a couple measures after the fade-in). If you want to do a gig where the bass fades in just fade it in on the note this tab starts on (C). If you're just jamming with this song though, you'll probably just start on percussion anyways, so you can follow this tab as written. Rock on party people. Intro: (Every measure has a note either played or rung out during the intro. For this tab only, when you see a ~, that means sustain the note until the next. For example, "5~" means sustain the 5th fret until you play your next note. If you are having trouble sustaining for extended periods, you can try using a vibrato or just replucking the note during a down beat.)

main rhythm of the bass line is pretty obvious, but I'm sure there are going to be disputes about one thing until a video is released, and that is whether there are 4 16th notes in the main riff (like this: |22225-2---------|) or 3 synchopated notes (like this: |22-25-2---------|). You can play it either way you want. I think the synchopation makes it a mellower and more fitting bass line but if you desire to play 4, be my guest. It's incredibly hard to discern with my system, but both are essentially the same and sound great. Additional info for how to play this song (changes in the song, etc.) can be obtained by e-mailing me at the address provided above. Questions and comments also welcome.

The sour sounding note you are hearing is a pull-off that Adam is doing in the line. For instnace on the E-string 5p4575/5p4575 go to D-string 3p2353/3p2353 and so on thru the progression. Try that and see if sounds a little better. I noticed the same thing when I first ried to figure it out. Its actually pretty cool.
