Vertigo Music by U2 Tabbed by Eric Danielson (edaniels73@hotmail.com) 9-25-04 This is my first tab... not perfect, but enough to get you started. I play this one with Drop D tuning. Listen to the song to get a feel for the strumming... The majority of the song is simply these riffs played in a simple pattern. It's easy to figure out once you get the tuning, and these basic riffs figured out. e--------x------x-----x-x----------- B--------x------x-----x-x----------- G--------x------x-----x-x----------- RPT...

U2 - Vertigo (2004), from How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb This song is pretty basic to play. I think the Swedish chords are right for the chorus but I hear something different for the intro and solo. [Intro] E A G [Verse] Muffled A E D Hello, Hello (Hola!) G A I'm at a place called vertigo (Donde esta) E D It's everything I wish I didn't know G A Except you give me something I can feel E A Feel [Verse 2] (This riff comes in halfway through this verse) E|| --10h-12--12h-10--12--12--10--12-- [Transition] G D A G D A [Solo] Hammer (listen to the sing to get the strumming right) xxx910x (x3), xxx99x (x6), xxx77x (x3) [Fade] E A G Unos, dos, tres, catorce Turn it up there, captain (Rock as hard as you can tonight) Lights go down, it's dark The jungle is your head Can't rule your heart A feeling so much stron-ger Than a thought Your eyes are wide And though your soul It can't be bought Your mind can wander Hello, hello (¡Hola!) I'm at a place called Vertigo (¿Dónde está?) It's everything I wish I didn't know Except you give me something I can feel, feel The night is full of holes There's bullets ripping sky Of ink with gold They twinkle as the boys Play rock and roll They know that they can't dance At least they know I can't stand the beats I'm asking for the check The girl with crimson nails Has Jesus around her neck Swinging to the music Swinging to the music Hello, hello (¡Hola!) I'm at a place called Vertigo (¿Dónde está?) It's everything I wish I didn't know But you give me something I can feel, feel (Shot dead) (Sure is a fall) (Show maiden in yeah) All of this, all of this can be yours All of this, all of this can be yours All this, all of this can be yours Just give me what I want And no one gets hurt Hello, hello (¡Hola!) We're at a place called Vertigo (¿Dónde está?) Lights go down, and all I know Is that you give me something I can feel your love teaching me how Your love is teaching me how How to kneel, kneel Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah [English Translation (thanks Bryan)] Uno, does, tres, catorce = One, Two, Three, Fourteen Hola = Hello, or yep. Dónde está = Where is (that)?
