Song:   Where The Streets Have No Name (Live)
Artist: U2
Album:  U2 go Home - Live From Slane Castle, Ireland
Tabber: Andrew Marks

This version of the song can be heard on Live from Slane Castle DVD. Set your
guitar on typical Edge settings, including delay and some reverb. This tab
is not written in correspondence with the exact strumming patterns. As with
most tabs, the easiest way to learn the song better is to listen to it too.

Basic chord progression:

[Verse]
  D - G - Bm - A - C

[Chorus]
  D - G - Bm - A - D
 
Harmonics (Electric piano / Strings) progression go during the intro like thus: 
D - G - D - G - Bm - A

Begin this guitar intro with the change the beginning of D 
E|10--------------10--------------10---------------|
B|--10----------10--10----------10-----------------|
G|----12--11--12------12--11--12-------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------|

Repeat until Bm which then has a change in riff
                         
E|10----10----10----10-----10--10-10--10-10--10-10--10--10--10|
B|--10----10----10----10---10--10-10--10-10--10-10--10--10--10|
G|----12----12----12----12-12--12-12--12-12--11-11--11--11--11|
D|-------------------------0---0--0---0--0---0--0---0---0---0-|
A|------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------|

There is a lot of hammering on and off the G string, listen
to the song and get the rhythm of how Edge plays it, it is very 
simple.

E|------------------------10-10--10-10------------------------|
B|10--10--10--10--10--10--10-10--10-10--10-10--10-10--10--10--|
G|12--11--12--12--12--11--12-12--12-12--12-11--12-12--12--11--|
D|0---0---0---0---0---0---0--0---0--0---0--0---0--0---0---0---|
A|------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------|

To close the intro, Edge shifts it up another gear. As soon as
the chord hits D again, palm mute immediately.

E|10--10--10--10--10--10--10/12--12-12--12-12--12-12--12--12--|
B|10--10--10--10--10--10--10/15--15-15--15-15--15-15--15--15--|
G|12--12--12--12--12--12--12/14--14-14--14-14--14-14--14--14--|
D|0---0---0---0---0---0---0--0---0--0---0--0---0--0---0---0---|
A|------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------|


[Verse 1]
Listen to the song to get the rhythm of this part. Edge simply 
squeezes his fingers down then lightly mutes them again 
repeatedly. He simply plays D - G - D - A then back to the main 
riff.

A|0-0-0-x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x------------|
E|x-x-x-x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x------------|

[Verse 2]
More mutung and some single string picking. Works well with delay.

A|--------0-0-0-0-x--x--x-----------------|
E|--------x-x-x-x-x--x--x-----------------|

[Chorus]
Simple chorus. Stretch you 5th (pinky) finger along the E string 
to reach the 5th fret.

E|5-3-2-5-3-2-3-3-2-2-------------|
B|3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-------------|
G|2-2-2-2-2-2-0-0-0-0-------------|
D|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-------------|
A|X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-------------|
E|X-X-X-X-X-X-3-3-3-3-------------|

The 2nd part of the chorus riff has Edge extend the D to an A,
which he then takes back to the main riff to close chorus.
 
E|5-3-2-5-3-2-0-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-----|
B|3-3-3-3-3-3-2-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-----|
G|2-2-2-2-2-2-2-12-11-12-12-12-11-12-----|
D|0-0-0-0-0-0-2-0--0--0--0--0--0--0------|
A|X-X-X-X-X-X-0-X--X--X--X--X--X--X------|
E|X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X--X--X--X--X--X--X------|

[Verse 3]
For those with the hammer thing on the guitars which loosen the
strings and give the damp effect, utilise this here. Edge plays a 
clean D, I think with maybe some added distortion, then gives it
the bendy sound. The riff goes simply like this, then straight back
to main riff.

E|2-XXX-2-XXX-3-2----2----------10-|
B|3-XXX-3-XXX-3---3---2--2-2--2-10-|
G|2-XXX-2-XXX-0--4-4---2--2--2--12-|
D|0-XXX-0-XXX-0-----4---2---2---0--|
A|X-XXX-X-XXX-2-----------------X--|
E|X-XXX-X-XXX-3-----------------X--|

   ^^^^^^^
  Bend These 

REPEAT SAME CHORUS AS ABOVE THEN CONTINUE WITH MAIN RIFF
HAMMERING ON/OFF G STRING UNTIL OUTRO, WHICH IS EXACT
SAME AS INTRO.
