                             Kite - U2
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Frank
Email: frankmagnussen@hotmail.com

Tuning: standard (half step down as always with U2 live)

The tabs on this page have the chords right, but Edge's
leads are wrong, so I thought I'd fill it in. This
version is from the Slane DVD, which is pretty much the same
as on the Elevation DVD and on the record, except that it
sounds like Edge has pre-recorded an extra guitar track at
Slane. Either way, this should be pretty close to correct!
Look elsewhere for the chords and lyrics.

Remember that Edge uses a slide throughout this song,
which means that you're one finger short.


Intro fill (w/slide) during the verses:
(Edge is not strumming the last of the two notes,
he's just moving the slide up the fretboard).
eb|------------------------|
Bb|----------14 / 9--------|
Gb|---------(12)/(9)-------|
Db|------------------------|
Ab|------------------------|
Eb|------------------------|
   "Something is...." etc...

Pre-chorus (w/slide):

Db --8\9\8\9\8\9\8\6~-|-8\9\8\9\8\9\8\6~-|
Ab --------------------------------------|
Eb --------------------------------------|

Db --4\6\4\6\4\6\1-1-|-8\9\8\9\8\9\9~----|
Ab --------------------------------------|
Eb --------------------------------------|
   "Cause hardness...."

(not exact strumming pattern)
    E          A                 C#m       A
eb|--0-0-0-0-0---5-5-5-5-5-------4-4-4-4-4---5-5-5-5-5-|
Bb|--0-0-0-0-0---5-5-5-5-5-------5-5-5-5-5---5-5-5-5-5-|
Gb|----------------------------------------------------|
Db|----------------------------------------------------| x2
Ab|------------0-----------0-2-4-----------0-----------|
Eb|-0--------------------------------------------------|
   "I want you to know..."

Chorus:
   E                   B           A
eb|---4-4-4-4-4-4-4h5-4\2-2-2-2-2-2---------------------|
Bb|---5-5-5-5-5-5-5---5\0-0-0-0-0-0---2-2-2-h4-2----2---|
Gb|-----------------------------------------------4---4-|
Db|-----------------------------------------------------|
Ab|---------------------------------0-------------------|
Eb|-0---------------------------------------------------|
   "Who's to say..."

eb|------------------------------------------|
Bb|---2h4-2---2---2-h4p2----2----------------|
Gb|---------4---4--------4----4--------------|
Db|------------------------------------------| x2
Ab|------------------------------------------|
Eb|------------------------------------------|

Back to intro-fill for the verses.

For the slide solo, play this (Edge is maybe playing it
on a different fret, but it sounds best with a lot of chorus):

eb|---7/9-12~-12\11-11\7-7\5-5~--------------|
Bb|------------------------------------------|
Gb|------------------------------------------|
Db|------------------------------------------|
Ab|------------------------------------------|
Eb|------------------------------------------|
Repeat this twice, then:
eb|---2/4\2-0-0-0-0~--------------|
Bb|-------------------------------|
Gb|-------------------------------|
Db|-------------------------------|
Ab|-------------------------------|
Eb|-------------------------------|

Back to chorus, then intro fill. Then at the end,
play this:
eb|---------------------------|
Bb|------9---------9----------|
Gb|--9-9---9-9-h11------------|
Db|---------------------------|
Ab|---------------------------|
Eb|---------------------------|
   "Did I waste.."

Repeat this a few times, and there you are!

Sorry - the correct Intro fill is supposed to be like this:
eb|------------------------|
Bb|----------14 / 9--------|
Gb|---------(14)/(9)-------|
Db|------------------------|
Ab|------------------------|
Eb|------------------------|
