Intro (with delay set on fast with few repeats, played with

a heavy 4/4 beat)

(faster)

 

1)---12---12---12---12---12---12---12---12------15-15-15-15-15-15-

2)------12---12---12---12---12---12---12---12---15-15-15-15-15-15-

3)----------------------------------------------------------------

4)----------------------------------------------------------------

5)----------------------------------------------------------------

6)----------------------------------------------------------------

 

When the band comes in, the intro is repeated with several

overdubbed fills, 3 of which are below:

 

1)---x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x--

2)---x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x--

3)---x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-- (strum muted strings)

4)---x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x--

5)---x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x--

6)---x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x--

 

1)---<12>--<12>--<12>-

2)---<12>--<12>--<12>-

3)---<12>--<12>--<12>- (strum natural harmonics

4)---<12>--<12>--<12>- at 12th fret)

5)---<12>--<12>--<12>-

6)---<12>--<12>--<12>-

 

1)---12--(12)--(12)---

2)---12--(12)--(12)---

3)-------------------- (Hit E & B at 12th frets and

4)-------------------- let echo repeat)

5)--------------------

6)--------------------

 

Another overdubbed fill is Edge sliding up and down the

neck of the guitar, so try to do as many overdubs that you

can.

 

The Verse is done with Edge strumming muted strings then

hitting E & B of the 12th fret on the 1st and 2nd strings,

letting them echo.

 

The Chorus can be done by arpegiating E and D chords:

(E) (D)

 

1)----------------------------------------

2)---------9-----------------7------------

3)-------9----9------------7----7---------

4)-----9--------9--------7--------7-------

5)---7------------7---5--------------5----

6)----------------------------------------

 

The part before the outro (Bono sings "do, do, do") is the

same as the above overdubs. The outro (with Bono singing

fast) is the same as the intro. Here's a tip:

 

For those with a delay pedal, listen to the last 2 seconds

of the song, when Edge slides down the strings, which is

echoed. This will give you an idea as to the speed and the

repetition of the delay used.
