11 O'clock Tick Tock by U2 Transcribed by Richard Zangoli.([email protected]) This is a transcription of the live version of this song from the Under a Blood Red Sky CD. It may not be 100% but I think it's there or there abouts. Tune down 1/2 a step. Intro (open string is optional)- Palm mute........................... harmonics.... E-------------------------------------------------------------- B------------------------------------------------12---12------- G-------------------------------------------12---12---12------- D-------------------------------------------12----------------- A--7--7--5--5--7--7--5--5--7--7--5--5-------------------------- E--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0-------------------------- This is the main riff- E---------------------------------7------------------------------------- B----------------------------------------------------------------------- G-9--9--7--7--9--9--7--7--9--7--9----9--9--7--7--9--9--7--7--9--7--9---- D--------------------------------------------------------------------7-- x2 A----------------------------------------------------------------------- E----------------------------------------------------------------------- I will call the next bit RIFF 1 (*=harmonics)- E---------------------12--0--15--14-------------------------------------- B0--12(*)----0--10---------------------12------0--12(*)-------------12--- G----------------------------------------------------------------9------- D-------------------------------------------------------------9---------- A------------------------------------------------------------------------ E------------------------------------------------------------------------ E------------12----------------- B-------10---------------------- G---9--------------------9s/7--- D------------------------------- A------------------------------- E------------------------------- I will call the next riff (where Bono sings "hear the children crying..") RIFF 2- E------------------------------------------------------------------------ B---------12---------10----------12-------------12--10------------------- G----9----------9-----------9------------9-----------------9------------- D------------------------------------------------------------------------ A------------------------------------------------------------------------ E------------------------------------------------------------------------ E-----------------------------------------14----------------15--14------- B-----------17-------------15-----------------------------------------17- G----14------------14-------------14---------------14-------------------- D------------------------------------------------------------------------ A------------------------------------------------------------------------ E------------------------------------------------------------------------ Edge varies the above riff but it will give you the basic idea. Here is a slight variation which I actually prefer- E------------------------------------------------------------------------ B----12-------10---------12------------------------------17--------15---- G9--------9---------9----------9--12--11--9----------14-------14-------14 D------------------------------------------------------------------------ A------------------------------------------------------------------------ E------------------------------------------------------------------------ E----14--------------15--14----------- B------------------------------15----- G--------------14--------------------- D------------------------------------- A------------------------------------- E------------------------------------- The last time Edge plays the riff he finishes with the high note on the 15th fret. He then goes back to the main riff and then plays RIFF 1 with a slight slight variation right at the end- E--------15-----------17--14--- B-------------15--------------- G------------------------------ Then RIFF 2 is played and during the chorus Edge plays some harmonics- E---------------12-------------------7--------------------5--- B----------12-----------------7---------------------5--------- G-----12----------------7--------------------5---------------- D------------------------------------------------------------- x 2 A------------------------------------------------------------- E------------------------------------------------------------- It then goes back to the main riff, then Riff 2, then the above chorus harmonics, then the main riff again and then this- RIFF 3- E----------------------0-----------------------------0------0------0--- B------------------------0------------------------------0-----0------0- G---------------------------------------------------------------------- D5--7--5--4--0--2---------------5--7--5--4--0--2----------------------- A---------------------------------------------------------------------- E---------------------------------------------------------------------- Now for the solo. It is quite hard to tab so ad lib and play around with it a bit but you can use this as a guide- E--------------------------------------------------------------------- B12--12--12--10--10--10--10--10------------10--------10------10------ G14--14--14--12--12--11--12--11----9-------12--------11-------12----11 D---------------------------------------------------------------------- A---------------------------------------------------------------------- E---------------------------------------------------------------------- E-----------------------17--17--17--17----------17--17--17--17--15--15-15- B10--10--10--10--10-----20--20--20--20--19--19--19--19--19--19--17--17-17- G12--12--11--12--12------------------------------------------------------- D------------------------------------------------------------------------- A------------------------------------------------------------------------- E------------------------------------------------------------------------- E15---14-------12-------12-----17--17--17--17--17--17--17--17--17--17--17--17- B17---15---12-------12---------20--20--19--20--19--19--20--19--20--19--20--19- G----------------------------------------------------------------------------- D----------------------------------------------------------------------------- A----------------------------------------------------------------------------- E----------------------------------------------------------------------------- E--17--17--17--17--17s/--15--15--14--14--12--12--7--7--5--5--5s/7--7------ B--20--20--19--19--19s/--17--17--15--15--12--12--8--8--5--5--5s/8--8------ G-------------------------------------------------------------------------- D-------------------------------------------------------------------------- A-------------------------------------------------------------------------- E--------------------------------------------------------------------------- Now for the harmonics.

For the second solo ad lib using the structures from the first one. The song ends on this- E----------------------------- B------------------------------ G----------------------------- and I think the final chord is Em.
