Vertigo - U2

Tabbed By: Abdullah Mahran

This is a pretty simple song, but all cases where it is hard to figure out the 
timing of the notes, i will put the tempo beats under the tab
a few rules:
I expect you heard this song before (and just putting the tempo for the people who 
are fed up, like me , with people that put the guitar tab with notes that are hard 
to hear so you can't tell the timing)
I expect you to listen to the rules that are stated above the tab lines
I expect you know how to count the timing: 1 e & a 2 e & a 3 e & a 4 e & a
i expect you to play it chronologically, not bit-by bit
i expect you know how to relate the tempo to the timing of the song, quarter beats/minute
i know you all know what palm mute (P.M) is, but each bar has a palm mute sign 
above it, but u only palm mute the notes with ---| above them including the one 
under the |
I refer to specific bars by FIG.[NUMBER] and it continues from the F in FIG to the 
| in -------------------------| (and if there is no |, then it means the fig is a 
few more bars longer until there is a |)
I expect you have the perfect tuning
I expect you know how to play harmonics
Chorus is always with distortion
The Beginning muted strums are with distortion
I expect you to follow all rules, including this one


tempo = 140 (also indicated by the stick beats at the beggining

standard tuning

At an obvious point, both guitars slide the fingers holding this chord in the nut-
bridge direction. After finishing the sliding sound, both guitars MUST mute the 
strings immediately by laying the fretting sound on all the strings without 
pressing them into each fret.




/ = slide up
\ = slide down
> = let ring
tacet = stays quiet
