U2 - Mysterious ways (Popmart! live version)

 

Graham Maskill - maskill@gem99.fsnet.co.uk

(Sorry-I made a cock-up in the last transcription with Verse 1, not with the tab but with the typing)

 

If you're playing along to the tape/video of popmart! don't forget to tune down 1/2 a step.

Back into main riff & into solo. Main riff plays 8 times from the solo's start, then it

changes to this (when Edge hits the high notes):
