LAST NIGHT ON EARTH (LIVE) -------------------------- U2 Tabbed by jules. Here's a song that really kicks arse live. It's certainly one of the best songs on the Mexico vid in my opinion and the mix into Until the End of the World is perfection. Tune down your Gold Top Les Paul half a step... Here's the main riff, as I see the Edge playing it.

To get the right sound it's important to play the notes at the right volume for this bit.
