WAKE UP DEAD MAN U2 - POP Tabbed by: [email protected] Based on original tab by: [email protected] This is the best way to play the song. The others were off the mark. Tune down a half-step if you want to play along with the cd. The rhythm given in the intro is the basic rhythm for the entire piece. The spacing DOES NOT represent accurate time - I just spaced it so it's clear - listen to the song to get spots that may be unclear - but it's pretty much all based on the beginning rhythm, so it shouldn't be too bad. I'm not too familiar with all the tab symbols, so here's a list of what I used: q.=dotted quarter note q=quarter note e=eighth note (#)=add the note indicated on the repeat <#>=omit the note indicated on the repeat [ ]=placed to keep time - see end of verse 2 for rhythm >=strum/pick hard Intro: -----0---------0---------0------------0------ -----10--------10--------10-----------10----- --------------------------------------------- --7------7--7------7--7------7--7--7------7-- --------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------- q. e q. e q.

There are some small variations I probably missed when the texture gets thicker, but this should give you a pretty accurate tab of the whole song. Enjoy! ------------------------ Wake up dead man (album cut from POP) by U2 transcribed by ragecanx2 ([email protected]) okay..here's the deal...i don't know what you people out there are drinking...but hmm ...after i play the transpcriptions for the song..they just don't seem right...so... after sitting my ass down and listening to the song, i came up with this...to me, atleast, it seems a bit closer to what other people have come up with...enjoy... ________________________________________________________________________ i'm pretty much just gonna give you the shape of the chords...the rest is up to you... -verse and intro- A G F C G e|----0-------|---0--------|---0--------|--------0---|---3--------| b|---10-------|---8--------|---6--------|--------1---|---3--------| G|------------|------------|------------|------------|------------| D|-7----------|-5----------|-3---(3-2-0)|------------|------------| A|------------|------------|------------|(0-2-)3-----|------------| E|------------|------------|------------|------------|-3----------| **play the stuff in () if you can...(or if you want)** -chorus- Am Am G D e|-----0-0----|-0-0-0------|---3---------|-2----------| b|-----1-1----|-1-1-1------|---3---------|-3----------| G|-----2-2----|-2-2-2------|---0---------|-2----------| D|-----2-2----|-2-2-2------|---0---------|------------| A|-0-0-0-0----|-0-0-0------|-------3-2---|------------| E|------------|------------|-3-----------|------------| the keyboard stuff is pretty straight forward....i didn't take the time to figure it out, seeming i don't have keyboard handy. Also, you can call me lazy, but the bendy fills the edge does in the 3rd and 4th choruses are no brainers...it was done with multi-tracking...so...you'd need another guitar to do it...and if you had two guitars playing the song...the 2nd guitarist would be pretty damn bored...but, if you are a creative soul, and have actually incorperated a 2nd guitar part here they are: 1st(e)|------12b14-12b14---|------10b12-10b12-----| also theres a fill during the "listen" part it's a little sometin' like dis: 3rd(G)|--2/4--4/5--5/7--5/2------| -lyrics- Jesus, jesus help me i'm alone in this world and a fucked world it is too Tell me Tell me the story the one about enternity and the way it's all gonna be... -chorus- Wake up wake up dead man (x2) Jesus i'm waiting here boss I know your looking out for us but maybe your hands aren't free your father he made the world in seven he's in charge of heaven will you put a word in for me (chorus x2) Listen to the words they'll tell you what to do listen over the rhythm that's confusing you listen to the reed in the saxaphone listen over the hum of the radio listen over the sounds of blades on rotation listen through the traffic and circulation listen as hope and peace try to rhyme listen over marching bands playing out their time (chorus x2) jesus were you just around the corner did you think and try to warn her or are you working on something new if there's an order in all of this disorder is it like a tape recorder can we rewind it just once more (chorus x2) So, there you have it...the fills and stuff should be (as always) improvisational...so shame on you for wanting to know exactly how something goes...always put your own little something into the song...it makes it more worth it =) WAKE UP DEAD MAN U2 tabbed by: [email protected] This is the only way to play this song. The others were all way of the mark.
