hey.... tab is not correct... Your verse... Every single note is off by one fret..... the verse should start at 15, then go to 14, then 10 slide to 12.... and so on

i have this battle too lol, but the tabber used the tone and CD player to figure this out, its right if you use it that way. but im guessing you tabbed it by stereo bob.

give the tabber a break, do you know how hard it is to tab a U2 song? Almost impossible to get every note exactly right because of their amazing trademark sound, and all the layers they record and merge in the studio
