Boom cha boom cha discotheque --leniarbk@jmu.edu Discotheque by U2 (main riff) Transcribed by Richard Zangoli(ahowden@magna.com.au) For those of you that want to play some new U2 this is a transcription of the 30 second sample of the upcoming single that has been recently floating around the internet (along with the sample of Wake Up Dead Man). If you don't have it I think it is on one of the U2 FTP archives and on some WWW U2 pages. Island records says that this sample is not of the final version of the song but we'll have to wait and see. And this transcription will undoubtably be replaced by a more complete version when the song is actually released. But for now here is the main riff. The tuning is standard I think-
And then this is played 4 times over while Bono sings the verse-
No wonder Bono said that Edge has fallen in love with the guitar again ....... This song is very easy to play & tab... make sure you're in 'dropped D' tuning... Intro/outro: --x-x---x-x---x-x--x--

Take these hands, they're good for nothing You know these hands have never worked a day Take these boots, they don't want to stray You got my head filled with songs You got my shoelaces undone Take my shirt, go on take it off me
You can tear it up if you can tie me down
Do you feel loved? Take the colours of my imagination Take the scent hanging in the air Take this tangle of a conversation and turn it into your own prayer With my fingers as you want them With my nails under your hide With my teeth at your back And my tongue to tell you the sweetest lies Do you feel loved? Do you feel loved? And it looks like the sun, but it feels like rain
(vibrate D note slightly several times during 3rd verse):1---------2-----3---3---------4---------5---------6---------
Love's a bully pushing and shoving in the belly of a woman Heavy rhythm taking over to stick together a man and a woman Man and woman stick together
Do you feel loved? Do you feel loved? And it looks like the sun, but it feels like rain And there's heat in the sun to see us through the rain

Nobody else here baby No one else here to blame No one to point the finger It's just you and me and the rain
Nobody made you do it, no one put words in your mouth Nobody here taking orders when love took a train heading south It's the blind leading the blond It's the stuff, the stuff of country songs If GOD will send His angels And if GOD will send a sign And if GOD will send His angels Would everything be alright?

GOD has got His phone off the hook, babe Would He even pick up if He could? It's been a while since we saw that child Hangin' 'round this neighbourhood See His mother dealing in a doorway See Father Christmas with a begging bowl Jesus sister's eyes are a blister The high street never looked so low
It's the blind leading the blond It's the cops collecting for the cons
So where is the hope?
And where is the faith? And the love? What's that you say to me? Does love light up your Christmas Tree?
The next minute you're blowing a fuse And the cartoon network turns into the news If GOD will send His angels And if GOD will send a sign Well if GOD will send His angels D G5 Where do we go?
Jesus never let me down you know Jesus used to show me the score Then they put Jesus in show business Now it's hard to get in the door It's the stuff, it's the stuff of country songs But I guess it was something to go on If GOD will send His angels I sure could use them here right now Well if GOD will send His angels Where do we go? --Brandon Leniart U2 - IF GOD WILL SEND HIS ANGELS from POP submitted by: remrocks@caedm.byu.edu before june 23, 1997 u2_rocks@hotmail.com after june 23, 1997 comments/suggestions welcome, thankyou, Jonathan Paul Lockhart First I'll define Rythym Figures and Riffs before I actually get into the song. The song appears to be in the key of Db, with A B D E & G all flat. At the end of the song is my attempt at the bass line. Ryth. Fig. 1 (arpeggiated Gb & Ebm chords)

Intro: the intro is mostly Bono's singing with Ryth. Fig. 1 in the background (there also seems to be an organ I couldn't figure out). Ryth. Fig. 1 seems to be played in the background for nearly the entire song. Ryth. Fig. 1 nobody else here baby no one here to blame no one to point the finger it's just you and me and the rain nobody made you do it no one put words in your mouth nobody here takin' orders when love took a train heading south it's the blind, leading the blond it's the stuff . . . it's the stuff of country songs Chorus (with organ) hey if God will send His angels and if God will send a sign and if God will send His angels . . . will everything be alright? Bass enters with Riff A (10X) God has got His phone off the hook babe would He even pick up if he could its been a while since we saw that child hangin' round this neighborhood see his mother dealin' in a doorway see Father Christmas with a begging bowl Jesus' sisters' eyes are a blister the high street never looked so low Riff B it's the blind, leading the blond it's the cops, collecting for the cons so where is the hope and where is the faith and the love Riff A (2X) what's that you say to me? does love light up your Christmas tree?

or just follow the notes: Gb Ab Bb Gb Gb Eb Db Gb Ab Bb Gb Well, after repeated listenings, I came up with a rough sketch of this soon to be favorite among U2 fans. I can't wait to hear the main riff echoing through the POPMART stadiums this summer. Anyway, here's a rough sketch of how to play the song. "If God Will Send His Angels", by U2 Tabbed by mps133@psu.edu Use a Delay Pedal, and you will need some sort of wah-wah to play certain parts to the song. THERE IS A CAPO USED ON THE 6th FRET for the Chords and Riffs Chords with respect to the CAPO are: C x32010 Am x02210 E* 0200xx G 3200xx OPENING VERSE: For the opening verse, the sound is really hard to match, but it is some sort of wah-wah type effect. Play the following chords apperegio through the opening verse (note - the 'G' part is only played once, repeat the C & Am apperegio throughout the verse):
G C Ame-----------------------------------------------------b---------------------1-------1-------1-------1-------g-----------------------2---2---2---2---0---0---0-----d-0-0------0-0------------2-------2-------2-------2---a-2---2----2---2--------------------------------------e-3-----3--3-----3------------------------------------

THE RIFF: There are many little variations that the Edge throws into this riff, play around with them, and play along with the song to get a feel for it. Use Delay for this riff, set to about .4 seconds. This tab is with respect to the capo on the 6th fret.

..................................... ..................................... GONE Transcribed by Brandon Leniart (leniarbk@jmu.edu) This song is tuned 1/2 step down and also changes keys a few times. Another one of my personal theories is that Bono is singing this song to himself, and he's trying to deal with his success. Just a thought.
this is actually what the riff sounds like: E1----------------------<5>--2---<5>---------------------3-------------<3>-----------4---------------------------5---------------------------6---------------------------
But since I know that riff is really tough to pull off, I've arranged an easier version to play (which is probably what Edge uses with an octaver and/or an effect that automatically produces harmonics): E1----------10-----12--2---12----------------3---------------------4---------------------5---------------------6---------------------
use these these in between lyrics in the verses:1---x-x-x-x-x-x-2---x-x-x-x-x-x-3---x-x-x-x-x-x-4---x-x-x-x-x-x-5---x-x-x-x-x-x-6---x-x-x-x-x-x-
You get to feel so guilty, got so much for so little Then you find that feeling just won't go away You're holding on to every little thing so tightly Till there's nothing left for you anyway

D Em I'm not coming down D E I'm not coming down
..................................... ..................................... MIAMI Transcribed by Brandon Leniart (leniarbk@jmu.edu) This song is TUNED DOWN 1/2 STEP, but I LEAVE the 2ND STRING at a B natural to get the harmonics right. Once again, I think Edge has a special machine to do this, but I can't think of a better way of getting the right sound. It looks harder than it is--just make sure you've got it on the bridge pickup and lots of distortion, and it sounds real cool. I think it's in A minor. With Larry's drum beat, I could just imagine them using "Miami" to segue into "Bullet The Blue Sky"...and I take it Ali wasn't with Bono on this Miami trip. Weather 'round here choppin' and changin' Surgery in the air Print shirts and southern accents, cigars and big hair We got the whells and petrol is cheap Only went there for a week Got the sun, got the sand Got the batteries in the handicam

I want a close up of that face Here comes the car chase
Miami, my mammy I bought two new suits, Miami Pink and blue, Miami I took a picture of you, my mammy Getting hot in a photo booth, Miami I said you looked like a madonna You said, "Maybe said I wanna have your baby." We could make something beautiful
Something that wouldn't be a problem Least not in Miami Some places are like your auntie But there's no place like...MIAMI Miami from: "Dan Bodeman" There is just some feedback that sounds like feedback coming from his Vox AC30s. This goes until the lyrics "here comes the car chase" Then it does this on the low E string. E---5-5-5-5-555-5(7)-5(7)------------ It goes along with the beat of the drums. The 5(7) is called something like harp harmonics. What you do to get this is press on the 5th fret with you index finger then reach over to the 7th fret with you pinky but you just rest it on the string lightly. Get a really fuzzy distortion to make this work. Use the same harp harmonics during the rest of the song. ..................................... ..................................... THE PLAYBOY MANSION Transcribed by Brandon Leniart (leniarbk@jmu.edu) This is Larry's favorite, in E major.

E If OJ is more than a drink And a Big Mac bigger than you think A If perfume is an obsession E And talk shows...confession C#m F#m What have we got to lose? C#m A Another push and maybe we'll be through E The gates of that mansion I never bought a lotto ticket, I never parked in anyone's space The banks they're like cathedrals, I guess casinos took their place A E Love come on down, don't wake her she'll come around Chance is a kind of religion Where you're damned for plain hard luck I never did see that movie, never did read that book A E Love come on down, let my numbers come around C#m F#m Don't know if I can hold on C#m A Don't know if I'm that strong C#m F#m Don't know if I can wait that long C#m A Till the colours come flashing and the lights go on E Then will there be no time for sorrow? Then will there be no time for shame? A E Though I can't say why, I know I've got to believe C#m F#m We'll go driving in that pool C#m A It's who you know that gets you through E The gates of the playboy mansion Then will there be no time of sorrow? Then will there be no time for pain? Then will there be no tome of sorrow? Then will there be no time for shame? The Playboy Mansion Music by U2 Transcribed by Brandon Leniart This is one of the new U2 songs on the net right now, and I couldn't make out a lot of the lyrics, so I'll just give you the basic chords. It's a slow, rap-like song in E, tuned down 1/2 step.

IF YOU WEAR THAT VELVET DRESS Transcribed by Brandon Leniart (leniarbk@jmu.edu) Tune 1/2 step down--in D minor.

Tonight the moon is playing tricks again Feeling sea sick again And the whole world could just dissolve into a glass of water I've been good 'cause I know you don't want me to Do you really want me to be as blue as you It's her daylight that gets me through We've been here before Last time you scratched at my door The moon was naked and cold I was like a 2 year old who just wanted more If you wear that velvet dress If you wear that velvet dress Tonight the moon's drawn its cutains It's a private show, no one has to know I'm wanting

Sunlight, sunlight fills my room It's sharp and it's clear But nothing at all like the moon

It's okay, the struggle for things not to say I never listened to you anyway And I got my own hands to pray But if you wear that velvet dress
If you wear that velvet dress Tonight the moon is a mirrorball Light flickers from across the hall Who'll catch the star when it falls?
..................................... ..................................... PLEASE Transcribed by Brandon Leniart (leniarbk@jmu.edu) Tune down 1/2 step--it's in B minor.
So you never knew love until you crossed the line of grace And you never felt wanted till you had someone slap your face So you never felt alive until you almost wasted away

And you never knew how low you'd stoop to make that call And you never knew what was on the ground till they made you crawl So you never knew that that the heaven you keep you stole Your Catholic blues, your convent shoes Your stick-on tattoos, now they're making news Your holy war, your northern star Your sermon on the mount from the boot of your car Please, please, please get up off your knees Please, please, please leave me out of this please Bm A A Bm So love is hard, and love is tough Bm A Em Bm But love is not what you're thinking of

September, streets capsizing, spilling over down the drain Shards of glass splinters like rain But you could only feel your pain October, talking getting nowhere November, December, remember Are we just starting again?
Please, please, please get up off of your knees Please, please, please, please
So love is bigger than us But love is not what you're thinking of It's what lovers deal, it's what lovers steal

You know I've found it hard to receive Cause you, my love, I could never believe ..................................... ..................................... WAKE UP DEAD MAN Transcribed by Brandon Leniart (leniarbk@jmu.edu) "It's a very angry song." says Bono--tune down 1/2 step, in A minor. Jesus
Jesus help me
I'm alone in this world
And a fucked up world it is, too
Tell me, tell me the story The one about eternity, and the way it's all gonna be Wake up
Wake up dead man
Wake up, wake up dead man
Jesus, I'm wating here, boss I know You're looking out for us But maybe Your hands aren't free
Your Father, He made the world in seven He's in charge of heaven Will You put a word in for me? Wake up, wake up dead man Wake up, wake up dead man
mellotron-like sounds:1---<5>----------------2---------<5>----------3-----------------<5>--4----------------------5----------------------6----------------------
Listen to your words they'll tell you what to do Listen over the rhythm that's confusing you Listen to the reed in the saxophone Listen over the hum of the radio
Listen over the sounds of blades in rotation Listen through the traffic and circulation Listen as hope and peace try to rhyme Listen over marching bands playing out their time Wake up
during 3rd & 4th choruses, with wah:1------------------2---15b17---15b17--3------------------4------------------5------------------6------------------
