                             "40" - U2

Tuning: 1/2 step down (Eb, Ab, Db, Gb)

This song sounds better with a pick. It sounds really good with one of the blue herdims
picks that The Edge uses.

The periods mark 16th notes. If you are having trouble getting the rhythm, put the
metronome away and listen to the song and play along. I just marked the 16th notes so you
could see how the notes come in. I find it way easier to just play with the song from 
the War CD and feel the rhythm.
