Zoo Station(live)

 

Intro-

E------------------------

B------------------------

G------------------------

D------------------------

A------------------------

E--17s/-------3----5-----

 

Slide the note on the 17th fret all the way up the fretboard to the 3rd

fret. However, while sliding it up the string, keep on picking it (quite

quickly) with both up and down strokes and then play the 3rd and 5th fret

notes. After playing this a couple of times play this-

E-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

B-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

G-----------------------------------------------------------------------------etc

D-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

A-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

E--17s/----3---5-----5--5---5---5---5---5--------17s/-------3--5----5---5---5-

 

Now for the nice riff that Edge plays (here and during the chorus). Form

what I hear he

picks 2 chords-

(X X 12 9 10 12) and (X X 11 9 10 12). This will give you and idea of how to

pick it-

 

E-------------------12-------------------12--------------------12-------------

B-------10-----------------10-------------------10-------------------10-----10

G-------------9----------------------------------------------------------9----

D-12------------------------------12--------------------12--------------------

A-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

E-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

E-------------------12------------------12-------------------12---------------

B--------10---------------10-------------------10-----------------10--------10

G----------------9--------------------------------------------------------9--

D11------------------------------11-------------------11----------------------

A-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

E-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Play this riff a few times. I think Edge varies it a bit but that's the

basic idea.

 

For the verses there isn't much guitar (mainly bass) but it sounds good to

play palm

muted power chords (of A G and D, which are the verse chords). That is, A

(577xxx),

G(355xxx) and D(10 12 12 X X X). Alternatively, you could play just the last

note of the

chords instead (on the big E string). Look to the other transcription for

the chord changes.

Also, listen for Edge playing the intro riff(the slide from the 17th fret)

during the verses every now and then.

 

Just before Bono starts singing "It's alright, it's alright..." there is a

pre-recorded

synthesiser playing this-

 

E---17--17--17--17--17--17--17---15--15--15--15--15--15s/--

B---17--17--17--17--17--17--17---15--15--15--15--15--15s/-- X2

G----------------------------------------------------------

D----------------------------------------------------------

A----------------------------------------------------------

E----------------------------------------------------------

 

Then Edge plays and A power chord a few times (it sounds good if you play

this bit with

a wah-wah or something similar) -

E------------------------------------------------

B--10--10--10--10--10--10--x--x--10--10--10--10--

G--9----9---9---9---9---9--x--x---9---9---9---9-- etc...

D--7----7---7---7---7---7--x--x---7---7---7---7--

A------------------------------------------------

E------------------------------------------------

 

Then the only other bit is the outro and it goes something like this-

 

E------------------------------------------------------------------

B---------------10----10----8--7--8-----10--10--10--10-----8--7--8- etc.. and finish

G----------------9-----9----9--9--9------9---9---9---9-----9--9--9- on the A

D----11--9---7---7--7--7-----------------7---7---7---7------------- power chord.

A------------------------------------------------------------------

E------------------------------------------------------------------
