If you don't have it I think it is on one of the U2 FTP archives and on some WWW U2 pages. Island records says that this sample is not of the final version of the song but we'll have to wait and see. And this transcription will undoubtably be replaced by a more complete version when the song is actually released. But for now here is the main riff. The tuning is standard I think- E-------------------------------------------------------------------------- B-------------------------------------------------------------------------- G-------------------------------------------------------------------------- D-------------------------------------------------------------------------- A---------5-----------------------5-------------7---------------5---------- E7--7--7----7--7--7-----7--5--7-------7--7--7------7---7---7-------7-7-7--- And then this is played 4 times over while Bono sings the verse- E-------------------------------------------------------------------------- B-------------------------------------------------------------------------- G-------------------------------------------------------------------------- D-------------------------------------------------------------------------- A---------5--------------7-----------------5------------------------------- E--7--7-------7--7--7---------7---7---7--------7---7---7------------------- No wonder Bono said that Edge has fallen in love with the guitar again ....... This song is very easy to play & tab... make sure you're in 'dropped D' tuning... Intro/outro: --x-x---x-x---x-x--x-- --x-x---x-x---x-x--x-- just repeated over & over.. --x-x---x-x---x-x--x-- --9-11--9-11--9-11-11- --9-11--9-11--9-11-11- --9-11--9-11--9-11-11- The 'main riff/solo' is just this: --------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------- -5-----------7-----------5------------------------- ---7--5--7-----7--5--7------7--5--7----7-7--5--7--- but, I'm not sure as to which fret they are actually on, as I don't have my guitar on me...It may be a different fret, but it's the same pattern. That's the song...Enjoy! Barry Chapman. [email protected]
