Zooropa Music by U2 Lyrics by Bono Transcribed by Brandon Leniart Tune down 1/2 step. The beginning piano chords are Gm and Em. You can play the power chords in the major and minors if you want, but I like to play major/minor chords when the song speeds up to make it sound more interesting--I hope my tabs are readable. For the most part it's in E major. Intro (with wah, phaser, and delay): 1--------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2-----------------------12--12--12--12--12---------------------------------- 3---9--9--9--9--9-----------------------------9--9--9--9--9----------------- 4-------------------------------------------------------------9--9--9--9--9- 5--------------------------------------------------------------------------- 6--------------------------------------------------------------------------- (jam with these chords): D A 1--------------- 2---15------10-- 3---14------9--- 4---12------7--- 5--------------- 6--------------- E D E 1------------------------------ 2------------------------------ 3---9--9--9--9---7/9--9--9--9-- 4---9--9--9--9---7/9--9--9--9-- 5---7--7--7--7---5/7--7--7--7-- 6------------------------------ Zooropa, Vorsprung durch Technik...Zooropa, be all that you can be F# D F# D 1--------------------------------------------- 2--------------------------------------------- 3---11-----------7------------11-----------7-- 4---11-----------7------------11-----------7-- 5---9------------5------------9------------5-- 6--------------------------------------------- Be a winner, eat to get slimmer Zooropa, a bluer kind of white...Zooropa, it could be yours tonight We're mild and green, and squeaky clean A D 1---------------- 2---10--------7-- 3---9---------7-- 4---7---------7-- 5---------------- 6---------------- Oh, oh Zooropa, better by design...Zooropa, fly the friendly skies Through appliance of science, we've got that ring of confidence (increase speed of delay): E Esus4 E D 1------------------------------------------------------------- 2---9--9--9--9----10--10--10--10----9--9--9--9----7--7--7--7-- 3---9--9--9--9----9----9---9---9----9--9--9--9----7--7--7--7-- 4---9--9--9--9----9----9---9---9----9--9--9--9----7--7--7--7-- 5---7--7--7--7----7----7---7---7----7--7--7--7----5--5--5--5-- 6------------------------------------------------------------- And I have no compass, and I have no map F#m 1---2--- 2---2--- 3---2--- 4---4--- 5---4--- 6---2--- And I have no reasons, no reasons to get back And I have no religion, and I don't know what's what And I don't know the limit, the limit of what we got E D 1------------ 2---9-----7-- 3---9-----7-- 4---9-----7-- 5---7-----5-- 6------------ Don't worry baby, it'll be alright You've got the right shoes to get you through the night It's cold outside, but brightly lit F#m Skip the subway, let's go to the overground E F#m E Take your head out of the mud, baby, put flowers in the mud, baby, overground No particular place names, no particular song I've been hiding...what am I hiding from?

Well I just got myself a wah-wah and got very excited when I played this song. I don't know exactly what effect Edge uses but you can get close to it if you use a delay pedal(I set mine at around 400ms) and constantly keep peddling a wah-wah. I used the transcription on the Net for some guidance these are some additional suggestions. Note that the tab here (as in the previous transcription) is half a step (one note) lower than the CD version. It makes playing open chords for the second half of the song possible and thus simplifies things a little. Intro Riff- E----------------------------------------------------------------------- B------------------------10-10-10-10--------------------------------- play G------x-x-7-7-7-7------------------------x-x-7-7-7-7---------------- this a D---------------------------------------------------------------7-7-7-7-couple of It then goes to (something like)- times E------------------------ E------------------------------ B---13--12---10h12p10--10--8h10-10 x2 B--8--7---5h7p5--5---3h-5--5- X2 G------------------------------- G----------------------------- D------------------------------- D---------------------------- You might want to play around with this ^ a bit until you get something that you think might be closer to the CD or sound better. But I think that the above is reasonably close. The chords given in the previous transcription for the intro verses (ie D D Em C Em C) sound right but you might want to play the bar chords at the 5th, 7th and 8th frets as they seems to sound closer to the CD. Play the chords a couple of times each but make sure to let the delay do most of the work. The chords for the second half of the song (D D4 D D9, Em C) also sound good but on the CD there is also a guitar that goes something like- E------------10-------- B---s/10-----------10-- G----------------------- D----------------------- This sounds good if it is played after the D9 chord. Have a listen to the CD to hear it. But if you are using a wah-wah it sound better if you don't peddle it when playing the riff. So there you go. Have fun. Richard Zangoli (a.k.a.
