MOFO (live) - U2 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Tabbed by Joseph Thomson a.k.a. \_-O M I C R O N-_/ I've noticed no-one has tabbed this yet, see the only tab out there is useless, so I hope this helps some of you :) THis is one of my fave U2 songs ever, when it's live, the recorded version isn't worth tabbing as it would sond crap live, basically, cause there's so many swishy effects kicking about.
