Bullet the Blue Sky (live version)

  		Just before the intro riff play this (bend the strings then release them  
reasonably slowly)-  
E----------------  
B-----15b------  
G-----14b------  
D---------------  
A---------------  
E----------------  
  
Intro riff (Edge uses a slide but you don't have to)   
E----7--7/s--  
B----7--7/s--  
G----7--7/s-- etc.  
D------------  
A------------  
E-0----------  
  
Just before the second verse, either slide you finger up the "big" E string  
or run your pick   
up it. And then with a wah-wah play this(x=mute strings)-  
E---x---x---x-----------------x--x--x------  
B---x---x---x---8--8--7p5---x--x--x-------  
G---x---x---x-----------------x--x--x  and so on  
D---x---x---x-----------------x--x--x------  
A-------------------------------------------  
E------------------------------------------  
  
Sometimes Edge will play this instead  
E--------------------  
B---------8--8--s/10  
G--------------------  
D--------------------  
A---------------------  
E---------------------  
For the Chorus play-  
  
E-----------------------------------  
B--7--7--------------------------  
G--7--7-------------------------- listen to the song for the timing.  
D--7--7--------------------------  
A----------7--5-5-5--5-7-5-7---      etc..  
E-----------------------------------  
  
After Bono says "Don't let it happen again" play this-  
E--------------3--3---3--3--3--3--3--3-------------------------------3---3---3--  
B--------------3--3---3--3--3--3--3--3-------------------------------3---3---3-  
G--------------0--0---0--0--0--0--0--0-------------------------------0---0---0--  
D------------------------------------------------------------------------------  
A----------------------------------------------------------5h7-----------------  
E---15s/0-----------------------------------------s/7--7---------0--------------  
etc...  
Play this a few times and on the last time the G chord is played start  
peddling the wah-wah. Now for the solo. Well there is a good transcription  
to it (the "Stay" single version) already on the U2 archive so you could to  
some extent use that one. However, the Sydney video version varies to some  
extent during its 2nd half (there are also minor variations in the first  
half but they are small and easy to pick up anyway) and is incomplete. So  
what I'll do is I'll tab the second half of the Sydney version and finish it  
off.  
  
The 2nd half of the solo-  
E--------------------------------  
B--15--0--14--0--12--0--10--0    play this three times, then play-  
G--------------------------------  
  
E-------------------------------------------------------------------------------  
B--15--0--14--0--12--0--14--0------15---0--14--12--0--10--0---15p14--0--12h-14-0  
G-------------------------------------------------------------------------------  
  
E----------------------------------------------------------------15------15-----  
B--15--0--14--0--12--14---15-15-s/17--17--17--0--15---s/15b---15b(17)-15b-----15  
G-------------------------------------------------------------------------------  
  
E----------------12--------------------------------------------  
B-----------12----------15b(and release)-----15--12--15-----  
G----s/14--------------------------------------------------------  
  
and now for the really fast bit (it's played so fast I can't exactly know  
what is played but this seems reasonably close and sounds good and is enough  
to get by)-  
  
E-----------------------------------------------------------------------------10  
B----------------------------------------------------8---10p8--10-----10b-------  
G-------------------------------7--9p7--9-----s/9-------------------------------  
D---------5--7p5--7--7s/9-------------------------------------------------------  
A-----7-------------------------------------------------------------------------  
E-------------------------------------------------------------------------------  
  
    P=pull off          use the wah here  
E--------------------------------------------------------------------------  
B----10bp8--10------10--8h10--8----7h8--5----5-----5p3---5p3--5p3---    etc....  
G---------------------------------------------------------------------------  
D---------------------------------------------------------------------------  
A----------------------------------------------------------------------------  
E----------------------------------------------------------------------------  
  
The what you might call the second solo is similar to the original version  
solo, uses a slide and goes something like-  
  
E------------------------------------------------------------------------------  
B---s/12-----------12---------------12------------------------------14----------  
G----------12-------------12----------------12---------12-----s/14------14------  
D---------------12--------------12----------------12------------------------14--  
A-------------------------------------------------------------------------------  
E-------------------------------------------------------------------------------  
  
E-------------------------------------------------------------------------------  
B-14----------------14----------------------------14-------------20--------20--  
G-------14------------------14----------14----------------s/21--------21-------  
D-------------14------------------14-----------14-------------------------------  
A-------------------------------------------------------------------------------  
E-------------------------------------------------------------------------------  
  
E----------------------------------------  
B---------20--------20------19s/------     after this it's very much ad libbing   
G----21--------21------21--------------     chaotic sound, scrape the edge of   
D-----------------------------------------      your pick on some or all of  
some   
A-----------------------------------------          or all of the last strings  
E------------------------------------------
