As with all U2 live performances, tune down * step. (I don't really have a clue about notation, so » = legato slide) intro (with flanger, phase, distortion, reverb and delay of approx 200ms, as at end of 'Discotheque): RIFF 1: ----------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------- -------7(hold) » 5(hold) » 4(hold) » 3(hold)--------- [ Repeat this many times, with sustained notes, allowing the flanger and phase to take effect. Try and leave the slide as late as possible, and use one of your fingers to hit the string at the same time as the pick, creating a cool harmonic sound. ] " Tonight, the moon is playing tricks again, Yeah I'm feeling sea-sick again and the whole world could just dissolve...... into a glass of water I've been good 'Cos I know you don't want me to Do you rerally want me to be as you (?) It's the daylight that gets me through But if you (drums and bass enter, end riff 1) [ strike the first note of riff 2 as Bono sings 'wear' . If you can, use a clean channel, plenty of reverb, delay of @ 450ms and all pickups in ] RIFF 2: (let ring) Repeat twice ----------2-------------------2-------------------------------------------3--------- --------------3--------------------3-------------------5-----------------------3---- ------------------4---------------------2------------------4----------------------0- ---------------------------------------------------5------------5------------------- ------2------------------0---------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------------------3------------- w - e - a - r that v - e - l -----2-------------------2---------------------------------------------3------------ ---------3--------------------3-------------------5-------------------------3------- -------------4---------------------2------------------4--------------------------0-- ----------------------------------------------5------------5------------------------ -2------------------0--------------------------------------------------------------- -----------------------------------------------------------------3------------------ - v - e - t d r e s s If you RIFF 3: (delay = 550ms, neck pickup only) ----7------------------10---9---7----5------7----------------10---9---7----5-- ---------7--------7-------------------------------7--------7------------------ --------------7----------------------------------------7---------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ (Here, Bono sems to forget the words or get mixed up, so I'm tabbing as it was in Rotterdam) " Tonight.....the moon is a mirrorball Light flickers from across the hall Who'll catch the star when it falls? It's okay......the struggle for things not to say But I've got my own hands to pray But if you (back to chorus and riff 2) wear.....that velevet dress.
