Until The End Of The World (live)

Music by U2
Lyrics by Bono
Transcribed by Brandon Leniart 

Here is a very simplistic version of "Until The End Of The World" live, 
tuned down 1/2 step. I finally realized Edge is a pretty smart for putting a 
capo on the 3rd fret, and playing it like he did on the studio version.  He 
plays the same chords, just 1/2 step down with a capo on the 3rd fret. I'll 
also give the chords if you don't have a capo.  

Intro (with distortion and delay):
1---x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x-------
2---x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--/12--
3---x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--/12--
4---x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--/12--
5---x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x-------
6---x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x-------

Intro/chorus:
2---12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--13--13--13--13--
3---12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--
4---12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--

Verse chords (with capo on 3rd fret):  Bm   D   Em

Pre-chorus chords:  D   A   Em   G5   D/F#    D   A

Solo:

2---18--18--18--17--15--15--15--15\13--13\11--11\10--10\8--

2---8--6--6h8--8--8--8--6--8--8b10--8--6--8--  (twice)

2---11p10p8--10--10--10--10--10--11p10p8--10--10--10--10--

2---11p10p8--8--6h8--8--8--8--6--6--8--8--11p10p8--10--10--10--11p10p8--10/

Here's the chords if you don't have a capo:

Verse:  Dm   F   Gm  

Prechorus:   F   C   Gm   Bb   F   C

Until the End of the World -Live 
-----------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Matt Means, LMJrBAE@aol.com

Tab guide:

B : string bend
/ : slide up
\ : slide down
^ : hammer on\pull off
~~ : vibrato


Standard tuning with capo on 4th fret 
( Note: for less confusion all open notes are indicated as 0 and not 4 )


Intro, with heavy funky distortion.( This probably won't sound much like it
unless you have the right effect ) 

[-------------------------------------------------------------------------]
[-0-5^0-5^0----11B----0-5^0-0----11B----0-5^0-0-------9B------/9-----/7---]
[-----------------------------------------------6-------------------------]
[-------------------------------------------------------------------------]
[-------------------------------------------------------------------------]
[-------------------------------------------------------------------------]

Next Edge does a nice muting rythm. ( just listen to the song )

Rythm figure 1 part A (Play 3X
[-----------------------------------------------------------]
[--11---12---11---12---11---11---11----11^12^11^12^11-------]
[--11---11---11---11---11---11---11----11-11-11-11-11-------]
[--11---11---11---11---11---11---11----11-11-11-11-11-------]
[--0-----9---11---10---0----0----0-----0^-9^-0^-9^-0--------]
[--0----10---0-----9---0----0----0-----0^10^-0^-10^0--------]

Rythm figure 1 part B ( instantly begin this after Part A) 
[--------------------------------------------]
[--------------------------------------------]
[----9-------9\7------7------7\6---6----6----]
[----9-------9\7------7------7\6---6----6----]
[----9-------9\7------7------7\6---6-- -6----]
[---10------10\8------8------8\7---7----7----]

Right after you hit the last cord for R1-B, jump into this great picking 
melody. (remember this is with a capo on 4th fret)

[-----------------I--------0---------I-------5--------8--6-6--8-]
[------------5----I-------------5----I------------7-------------]
[---6---------6---I---0-----------0--I---6----------------------]
[-------6---------I------------------I-0---0----0---0-----------]
[-0---0---0----0--I-6---6-----6------I--------------------------]

Repeat above figure again

[-------5--7--5--------------------------]
[----0------------0----6--6---7--7--9/---]
[-0-----------------------=--------------]
[----------------------------------------]
[----------------------------------------]

The last few notes above lead into rythm figure 1-A which is played 3X,
and then rythm figure 1-B. Next is Rythm figure 2, shown below. 

[-----I-Re1-----------------------------------------------------]
[-----I---------------------------------------------------------]
[--0--I--6--6--6--6--6--6--6/8--8/9---9---9---9---9---9----9/---]

[--0--I--6--7--7--7--7--7--7/9--9/10--10--10--10--10--10--10/---]

[--12---12/14--14--14---14\12---12---12\10--10---10/12--12/14---14---14--]


[------------IRe2--------------------]Now go back up to the Re1 sign and  
[------------I-----------------------]play through until you get to the
[--13\11--11-I-11\9---9---9/11--11---]Re2 sign, then through until you get  
[--13\11--11-I-11\9---9---9/11--11---]to the go to the picking figure below.
[--13\11--11-I-11\9---9---9/11--11---](note: at the end of Rythm figure two,   
[--14\12--12-I-12\10--10--10/12-12---]play  the last chord a few extra times)

[-----------------I-----------------I----------5---0----------]
[---5--7--5-------I----5--7--5------I-----7------5----5--7--5-]

[-0----------------0-----------------------]
[------------------------------------------]
[------------------------------------------]

Now play Rythm figure 1-A only. ( play 4 times, 4th time without the ending )

Next is a typically Edge-like solo. ( when the 4th and 5th strings are
played, damp them right away )

                                                                 ~~~

[----------------------------------------------------------------------]
[----------------------------------------------------------------------]
[----------------------------------------------------------------------]
[----------------------------------------------------------------------]

The last slide of the solo goes up to Rythm figure 1-A ( played 3X ),
then Rythm figure 1-B.  

Rythm figure 1-B then leads into Rythm figure 2.

After Rythm figure 2 come the harmonics shown below.

[-------------------16--------------------16--------------16--16--------]
[--------------16-------16--------------------16-------------------16---]
[---------16-----------------16----16-------------16--------------------]
[----16-----------------------------------------------------------------]
[-----------------------------------------------------------------------]
[-----------------------------------------------------------------------]

The above harmonics are repeated again and then lead into picking.


[--------------I------------I------------5---0-------0-]
[--5--7--5-----I---7--5-----I------7-------5----7--5---]
[----------0---I-0------6---I----6---6-----------------]
[------------0-I----------0-I--0-----------------------]
[--------------I------------I--------------------------]
[--------------I------------I--------------------------]

                     ~~~~~~~~           
[------------------------------------]
[------5--7--5-----------------------]
[----0---------0---6-6--8-8--9/------]
[-0----------------------------------]
[------------------------------------]
[------------------------------------]

Next play rythm figure 1-A 4 times ( 4th time without ending )

Last is Edge's live outro jam.  With so much going on it was very hard 
to tab.  This is the best I can make of it.  Feel free to improvise.


                                               ~~~~~

             This is the vaguest part.  He seems topick and 
             play these chords and notes for maybe 10seconds. 
[------------------------I--12-----------12-----12-------------------]
[------------------------I--12-----------12-----12-------------------]
[-13--14--16---14^13--11-I------11--11---11---------14^13--11---etc.-]
[----------------------0-I------0---0--------------------------------]
[----------------------0-I-------------------------------------------]
[----------------------0-I-------------------------------------------]

Here is the last part of the outro.  I'm pretty sure about this.

[--------------------------------------------------------------------]
[--15--15---16--16---15---15---16----21---21---16----9----9-----9----]
[--15--15---16--16---15---15---16----21---21---16----9----9-----9----]

[--13--13---14--14---13---13---14----19---19---14----7----7-----7----]

Play above figure 2 more times.

Haven't seen you in quite a while

I was down the hold, just passing time

We were as close together as bride and groom

You were talking about the end of the world

I took the money, I spiked your drink
You miss too much these days if you stop to think
You led me on with those innocent eyes
You know I love the element of surprise
In the garden I was playing the tart
I kissed your lips and broke your heart
You, you were acting like it was the end of the world

This is a simplified version of the solo.  If I included every
single note it would have been to hard to read.  This will give
you the basis of the solo, and from here you can add what you
think is best, comments welcome.

In my dream I was drowning my sorrows
But my sorrows they learned to swim
Surrounding me, going down on me
Spilling over the brim
Waves of regret, waves of joy
I reached out for the one I tried to destroy
You, you said you'd wait 'til the end of the world.
