You can reach, but you can't grab it
You can't hold it, control it, you can't bag it

Circulate, regulate, you cannot connect it

It's the way you don't pay, that's OK, cause you can't earn it
You know you're chewing bubble gum
You know what that is but you still want some
You just can't get enough of that lovie dovie stuff
Let go, let's go, discotheque
Go go, let go, discotheque
Looking for the one, but you know you're somewhere else instead
You want to be the song, the song that you hear in your head
Love
But you take what you can get, cause it's all that you can find
Oh you know there's something more, but tonight, tonight, tonight

Boom cha  boom cha discotheque

         Discotheque by U2 (main riff)
Transcribed by Richard Zangoli(ahowden@magna.com.au)
        For those of you that want to play some new U2 this is a
transcription of the 30 second sample of the upcoming single that has been
recently floating around the internet (along with the sample of Wake Up Dead
Man). If you don't have it I think it is on one of the U2 FTP archives and
on some WWW U2 pages. Island records says that this sample is not of the
final version of the song but we'll have to wait and see. And this
transcription will undoubtably be replaced by a more complete version when
the song is actually released. But for now here is the main riff. The tuning
is standard I think-

E--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A---------5-----------------------5-------------7---------------5----------|
E7--7--7----7--7--7-----7--5--7-------7--7--7------7---7---7-------7-7-7---|

And then this is played 4 times over while Bono sings the verse-

E--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A---------5--------------7-----------------5-------------------------------|
E--7--7-------7--7--7---------7---7---7--------7---7---7-------------------|

        No wonder Bono said that Edge has fallen in love with the guitar

again .......


This song is very easy to play & tab...
   make sure you're in 'dropped D' tuning...

  Intro/outro:

--x-x---x-x---x-x--x--|
--x-x---x-x---x-x--x--|   just repeated over & over..
--x-x---x-x---x-x--x--|
--9-11--9-11--9-11-11-|
--9-11--9-11--9-11-11-|
--9-11--9-11--9-11-11-|

The 'main riff/solo' is just this:

---------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------|
-5-----------7-----------5-------------------------|
---7--5--7-----7--5--7------7--5--7----7-7--5--7---|

but, I'm not sure as to which fret they are actually on, as I don't have my guitar on me...
It may be a different fret, but it's the same pattern.

IF GOD WILL SEND HIS ANGELS

Transcribed by Brandon Leniart (leniarbk@jmu.edu)


This song's about an abusive boyfriend, tune 1/2 step down--in G major.

intro, with phaser and autowah:

2---2------6--8---|
3---0------7--9---|

Nobody else here baby
No one else here to blame
No one to point the finger
It's just you and me and the rain

1---14------12----------|
2-------------------15--|
3-----------------------|
4-----------------------|
5-----------------------|
6-----------------------|

Nobody made you do it, no one put words in your mouth
Nobody here taking orders when love took a train heading south
It's the blind leading the blond
It's the stuff, the stuff of country songs
If GOD will send His angels
And if GOD will send a sign
And if GOD will send His angels
Would everything be alright?

with delay (Edge improvises the second set of notes):
1--------------------------------------|
2---8-(8)--10-(10)------10--12--8-(8)--|
3--------------------------------------|
4--------------------------------------|
5--------------------------------------|
6--------------------------------------|

GOD has got His phone off the hook, babe
Would He even pick up if He could?
It's been a while since we saw that child
Hangin' 'round this neighbourhood
See His mother dealing in a doorway
See Father Christmas with a begging bowl
Jesus sister's eyes are a blister
The high street never looked so low

2---7-------7------------7---------7--8--10---------7--|
3-------------------0----------------------------------|

It's the cops collecting for the cons

So where is the hope?

1-------------8-----------------7--|
2--------8----------------8--------|
3---7----------------7-------------|
4----------------------------------|
5----------------------------------|
6----------------------------------|

And where is the faith?
And the love?
What's that you say to me?
Does love light up your Christmas Tree?

1------------------|
2---8---7----------|
3-----------7---7--|
4------------------|
5------------------|
6------------------|

The next minute you're blowing a fuse
And the cartoon network turns into the news
If GOD will send His angels
And if GOD will send a sign
Well if GOD will send His angels

D           G5
Where do we go?

1-------------------------------|
2--------8---7----------8----7--|
3---7--------------7------------|
4-------------------------------|
5-------------------------------|
6-------------------------------|

Jesus never let me down you know
Jesus used to show me the score
Then they put Jesus in show business
Now it's hard to get in the door
It's the stuff, it's the stuff of country songs
But I guess it was something to go on
If GOD will send His angels
I sure could use them here right now
Well if GOD will send His angels
Where do we go?

U2 - IF GOD WILL SEND HIS ANGELS from POP

comments/suggestions welcome, thankyou,
Jonathan Paul Lockhart

First I'll define Rythym Figures and Riffs before I actually
get into the song.  The song appears to be in the key of Db,
with A B D E & G all flat.  At the end of the song is my
attempt at the bass line.


Ryth. Fig. 1 (arpeggiated Gb & Ebm chords)

e----2-----------2-----------2-----------2-------------|
B-------2-----2-----2-----2-----4-----4-----4-----4----|
G----------3-----------3-----------3-----------2-------|

B----7---7-------------(7)---------7-4----|
G-----------------------------------------|


Riff B  (all notes adlib)

e--------6---6-------6---6------|
B------7---7---7---7---7---7----| X2
G----6-----------6--------------|

e--------9---9-------6---6------|

Riff C
D----16------13--16--13------16------13--16--13------(13)--16----|
A------------------------16----------------------16--------------|
E----------------------------------------------------------------|


Intro:  the intro is mostly Bono's singing with Ryth. Fig. 1 in the
        background (there also seems to be an organ I couldn't figure
        out).  Ryth. Fig. 1 seems to be played in the background
        for nearly the entire song.

Ryth. Fig. 1
nobody else here baby
no one here to blame
no one to point the finger
it's just you and me and the rain

nobody made you do it
no one put words in your mouth
nobody here takin' orders
when love took a train heading south

it's the blind, leading the blond
it's the stuff . . . it's the stuff of country songs

Chorus (with organ)
hey if God will send His angels
and if God will send a sign
and if God will send His angels . . .
will everything be alright?

Bass enters with
Riff A (10X)

God has got His phone off the hook babe
would He even pick up if he could
its been a while since we saw that child
hangin' round this neighborhood

see his mother dealin' in a doorway
see Father Christmas with a begging bowl
Jesus' sisters' eyes are a blister
the high street never looked so low

Riff B
it's the blind, leading the blond
it's the cops, collecting for the cons
so where is the hope
and where is the faith and the love
Riff A (2X)
what's that you say to me?
does love light up your Christmas tree?

Riff B
the next minute your blowin' a fuse
and the cartoon network turns into the news

Riff A
if God will send His angels
and if God will send a sign
well if God will send His angels . . .
where do we go?
(where do we go?)

Bass Solo with
Riff C (9X)

Jesus never let me down,
you know Jesus used to show me the score
then they put Jesus in show business
now it's hard to get in the door
(I need you)

Riff B
it's the stuff, it's the stuff of country songs
but I guess . . . yah it's something to go on

Riff A
if God will send His angels . . .
sure could use them here right now
well if God will send His angels . . .

Play around with a bend on B----7----
and Riff A notes then move into Riff B

if dont know want my life
and I wanna love I feel some
and I wanna love again . . .
and I wanna feel love . . . uhhhhhh!

Outro:

Bass Solo then
drums enter to fade
(add Riff C during fade)


BASS (alternate tuning)
Eb-----------------------------------------------|
B------------------------------------------------|
Gb----0---2---4---0-------------0---2---4---0----|
Db--------------------2---0----------------------|

or just follow the notes:
Gb  Ab  Bb  Gb  Gb  Eb  Db
Gb  Ab  Bb  Gb

Well, after repeated listenings, I came up with a rough sketch of this
soon to be favorite among U2 fans.  I can't wait to hear the main riff
echoing through the POPMART stadiums this summer.  Anyway, here's a
rough sketch of how to play the song.

"If God Will Send His Angels", by U2
Tabbed by mps133@psu.edu

Use a Delay Pedal, and you will need some sort of wah-wah to play
certain parts to the song.

THERE IS A CAPO USED ON THE 6th FRET for the Chords and Riffs
Chords with respect to the CAPO are:
C  x32010
Am x02210
E* 0200xx
G  3200xx

OPENING VERSE:
For the opening verse, the sound is really hard to match, but it is some
sort of wah-wah type effect.  Play the following chords apperegio
through the opening verse (note - the 'G' part is only played once,
repeat the C & Am apperegio throughout the verse):

        G                  C             Am
e-----------------------------------------------------|
b---------------------1-------1-------1-------1-------|
g-----------------------2---2---2---2---0---0---0-----|
d-0-0------0-0------------2-------2-------2-------2---|
a-2---2----2---2--------------------------------------|
e-3-----3--3-----3------------------------------------|

C                   Am  C                      Am
Nobody else here baby no one else here to blame
C                        Am  C                             Am
No one to point the finger...it's just you and me in the rain
Nobody made you do it no one put words in your mouth
Nobody here taking orders when love took a train heading south


PRECHORUS:
          G       Am (may be C, not too sure)
It's the blind leading the blond
          G          Am
It's the stuff the stuff of country songs

REFRAIN:
       C           E*           Am  G
Hey if God would send his angels
       C           E*       Am  G
And if God will send a sign
       C           E*          Am
And if God will send his angels
            E*              C
Would everything be alright?

THE RIFF:
There are many little variations that the Edge throws into this riff,
play around with them, and play along with the song to get a feel for
it.
Use Delay for this riff, set to about .4 seconds.  This tab is with
respect to the capo on the 6th fret.

e---------------0---------|
b-1-1-3-3-----3---3-1-----|     Just repeat this pattern, and play around
g---------------------2---|     with different variations to get it right

Little Riff after Bono Sings "Where Do We Go?"
(no delay for this part).  Tab with respect to capo on 6th fret.

d---10--8-10-8----10---8-10-8----8--|
a--------------10-------------10----|

That's basically the song.  I welcome any corrections.
Enjoy.

In the shade of a willow tree creeps a crawling over me

GONE

Transcribed by Brandon Leniart (leniarbk@jmu.edu)

This song is tuned 1/2 step down and also changes keys a few times.
Another one of my personal theories is that Bono is singing this song to
himself, and he's trying to deal with his success.  Just a thought.

this is actually what the riff sounds like:
     E
1----------------------<5>--|
2---<5>---------------------|
3-------------<3>-----------|
4---------------------------|
5---------------------------|
6---------------------------|

But since I know that riff is really tough to pull off, I've arranged an
easier version to play (which is probably what Edge uses with an
octaver and/or an effect that automatically produces harmonics):
    E
1----------10-----12--|
2---12----------------|
3---------------------|
4---------------------|
5---------------------|
6---------------------|

use these these in between lyrics in the verses:
1---x-x-x-x-x-x-|
2---x-x-x-x-x-x-|
3---x-x-x-x-x-x-|
4---x-x-x-x-x-x-|

You get to feel so guilty, got so much for so little
Then you find that feeling just won't go away
You're holding on to every little thing so tightly
Till there's nothing left for you anyway

You're taking steps that make you feel dizzy
Then you get to like the way it feels
You hurt yourself, you hurt your lover
Then you discover what you thought was freedom was just greed

MIAMI

Transcribed by Brandon Leniart (leniarbk@jmu.edu)

This song is TUNED DOWN 1/2 STEP, but I LEAVE the 2ND STRING at a B
natural to get the harmonics right.  Once again, I think Edge has a
special machine to do this, but I can't think of a better way of getting
the right sound.  It looks harder than it is--just make sure you've got
it on the bridge pickup and lots of distortion, and it sounds real cool.
I think it's in A minor.  With Larry's drum beat, I could just imagine
them using "Miami" to segue into "Bullet The Blue Sky"...and I take it
Ali wasn't with Bono on this Miami trip.


Weather 'round here choppin' and changin'
Surgery in the air
Print shirts and southern accents, cigars and big hair
We got the whells and petrol is cheap
Only went there for a week
Got the sun, got the sand
Got the batteries in the handicam

Here comes the car chase

Miami
from: "Dan Bodeman" 


There is just some feedback that sounds like feedback coming from his Vox
AC30s.  This goes until the lyrics "here comes the car chase" Then it does this
on the low E string.

E---5-5-5-5-555-5(7)-5(7)------------

It goes along with the beat of the drums.  The 5(7) is called something like
harp harmonics.  What you do to get this is press on the 5th  fret with you
index finger then reach over to the 7th fret with you pinky but you just rest
it on the string lightly.  Get a really fuzzy distortion to make this work.
Use the same harp harmonics during the rest of the song.

What have we got to lose?

Another push and maybe we'll be through

The gates of that mansion
I never bought a lotto ticket, I never parked in anyone's space
The banks they're like cathedrals, I guess casinos took their place

Love come on down, don't wake her she'll come around
Chance is a kind of religion
Where you're damned for plain hard luck
I never did see that movie, never did read that book

Love come on down, let my numbers come around

Don't know if I can wait that long

C#m                                    A
Till the colours come flashing and the lights go on

                E
Then will there be no time for sorrow?
Then will there be no time for shame?

         A                          E
Though I can't say why, I know I've got to believe

         C#m             F#m
We'll go driving in that pool

             C#m                A
It's who you know that gets you through

                 E
The gates of the playboy mansion
Then will there be no time of sorrow?
Then will there be no time for pain?
Then will there be no tome of sorrow?
Then will there be no time for shame?




The Playboy Mansion

Music by U2
Transcribed by Brandon Leniart 

This is one of the new U2 songs on the net right now, and
I couldn't make out a lot of the lyrics, so I'll just give
you the basic chords.  It's a slow, rap-like song in
E, tuned down 1/2 step.

A
E

It`s recomended to play it with the record the first few times.

THE SLIDE PART (you hear this little bit a lot of times in the song and the song also
                fades out with it).

E   0  0    0  0  (i forgot what the slide sign was but again listen to the
B   7  5    3  5   record to catch the timming).

IF YOU WEAR THAT VELVET DRESS

Tonight the moon is playing tricks again
Feeling sea sick again
And the whole world could just dissolve into a glass of water
I've been good 'cause I know you don't want me to
Do you really want me to be as blue as you
It's her daylight that gets me through
We've been here before
Last time you scratched at my door
The moon was naked and cold
I was like a 2 year old who just wanted more
If you wear that velvet dress
If you wear that velvet dress
Tonight the moon's drawn its cutains
It's a private show, no one has to know

And you never knew how low you'd stoop to make that call
And you never knew what was on the ground till they made you crawl

Your Catholic blues, your convent shoes

Your holy war, your northern star
Your sermon on the mount from the boot of your car

C                         G
And what a fucked up world it is too

(verses continue like this all way through, there is a riff/chord change
on the dm chord which I haven't had time to figure out yet)

Chorus:

Am    (!!)         G    D
Wake up, wake up dead man


!! - strike the Am chord twice & let ring


Little chorus riff (play over the G & D chords in the chorus):

a------------5---|
e----5---3-------|


Note:
Most of the chords are played by striking the bass note of the chord &
then the two bottom strings

ie Am -> ---5-----5-|
         ---5-----5-|

Wake Up Deadman
from:GregL550@aol.com

In Eb, here it is.  It involves picking chords.  Slight distortion is used
during the chorus:

Verse:  Am  G   F  Dm  C  G
Chorus: Am G  D

the Dm Edge plays is like this:

-----------------0-----------------|E
-----------------6-----------------|B
-----------------7-----------------|G
-----------------7-----------------|D
-----------------5-----------------|A


Wake Up Deadman
from:Heiko Ziegler 

Verses : Fis Fis Gism Gism E Cism H Fis
        (I wrote the first Fis and the first Gism two times to give you a
        better idea of the timing )
Refrain: Gism Fis

Instead of playing the Fis accord in the refrain you can play on the 2.,
1. and the 4. fret with the a-string (actually ,that`s what the Edge
plays ).

I have tried to fix a little bit on Wake Up...
This is my verson(some errors, but I'll correct them later)

Enjoy

I also have the bass-line to If You Wear...

here it is:  G C(#?) A F E F G (and so on). it also contain an A in the bridge.

If any comments to the chords or my English, mail me

Xyndiack@hotmail.com
Oyvind Aasan

minor correction

C#m to F#m in the last phrase before the chorus.
