U2 - Until the end of the world (Achtung baby)
A quick recap on the moment... actung baby see the light afer 15 years of band already
on 1993, the singles more known where mysterious ways, whose gonna ride your wild horses,
the fly, of course the U2 greatest hit ONE, and then the single that climb up to the top
and also played on almost every u2 tour including "VERTIGO TOUR 2006", Until the end of
the world.
FYI This is my second tab and also I am argentinian and u2 played here yesterday and
the day before on the river plate stadium for 75.000 u2fanatics. of course they give
a tremendus showwwwwww that also include "until the end of the world" played after
elevation and before new years day!!!!
Now regarding the different versions that can be found on this hit, I will tab
the "standard album version" and without any capo though on live versions edge
uses one on the 3rd or 4th fred depending on tunning (also you can tune standard
or half step down). Last but not list, I work really really hard on making it a
1 guitar song even though how complex the song is, so apreciate any comments or
congrats on "tintinvox@gmail.com"
spaces and times are not 100% accurate but i am sure you will figure it out.
and also it would be good an expresion pedal to put more or less distortion.

Referneces:

XX: mute string
00: open string
5/7: slide either up or down
...: let ring
h: Hammer on
p: pull off
v: vibrato
fb: full bend

INTRO:

Begins with the bass and drums but you can play just this as a cover.
important to keep the E string open
distortion

e-xx-xx-xx-xxxx-----------------------------------------------|
B-xx-xx-xx-xxxx-----------------------------------------------|
G-xx-xx-xx-xxxx-----------------------------------------------| X3
D-xx-xx-xx-xxxx-----------------------------------------------|
A-xx-xx-xx-xxxx-----------------------------------------------|
E-00-00-00-0000-3/15------------------------------------------|

Play that 3 times and the 4th time speed up a little beet and play this similar riff

e---xx-xx-xx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx----------------------------|
B---xx-xx-xx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx----------------------------|
G---xx-xx-xx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx----------------------------|
D---xx-xx-xx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx----------------------------|
A---xx-xx-xx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx----------------------------|
E---00-00-00-00000-00000-00000----------------------------|

Now the main riff, (basecilly E and Esus4) timing is really important even more if you 
not using a delay pedal. Seems

hard but if you put the finger correctly is easy

PUT MORE DISTORTION ALMOST 70%

 (while going from Esus4 to D5 strum open the strings so sound doesn`t stop)

verse 3 is different as well, pretty much 5thchords just playing
the A and the G srting, you can either mute or not play the D string,
I don`t play it but sometimes y add a xxxxx on the strumming. Also don`t
be so regular with the strumming add some rythm

This pre chorus is similar to the first one and remember while aproaching to ...until 
end...put more distortion and strum harder!!!!!! like it would be the end of the world
