U2 – All I Want Is You tab
From: Scott A. Yanoff
U2 "All I Want is You" Verses: The verses/intro alternate with A and D chords ("You say you want diamonds on a ring of gold You say you want your story to remain untold") ("All the promises we make, from the cradle to the grave...") uses: F#m D End chords: Am7 and D7 Chords: A x x 2 2 2 0 D x x 0 2 3 2 F#m 2 4 4 2 2 2 Am7 x x 2 2 2 3 D7 x x 0 2 1 2 From: email@example.com (Marc Virata) > >with thumb... A///D///A///D/// play a couple of times...then Bmin///G///Bmin///G/// This should be F#m to D, but Bmin to G sounds pretty good. 8) finaly, that little riff that the edge plays after bono sings "all I want, is you" is just the first little riff with the ocassional sus2 chord thrown in. hopefully i'll have time to make a better transcription of this song sometime. it would sure help to have my guitar with me when I hear it next... In order to play along with the song, use G, C, and Em, and capo on the first fret.... (capo 1st fret) G C You say...you want.... Em C All the promises we make Em C From the cradle to the grave G C G When All I Want Is You (these are the same sounding chords to U2's "Numb" if you want to try a weird cover version combining two songs)I try to get by on Edge's riffs with something like:-3-3-3-3-3-3--0-0-0-0-0-0----0-0-0-0-0-0--1-1-0-1-3-1----0-0-2-0-2-0--0-0-0-0-0-0----0-0-0-0-0-0--2-2-2-2-2-2-----------------------------------------------------------The strings in the end use a G7, C, G, progression I believe. Marc Date: Fri, 22 Sep 95 19:08:57 CST From: "Ben Weiss" I think U2 plays this in A, tuned down half a step. I use G because I like the sound. Ben ALL I WANT IS YOU (U2) INTRO: G (320033) C (x32010) (repeat) For an intro riff, I alternate the second-string D and the open G on the G chord, then the open high E and G of the C, adding appropriate bass notes: G (d"d" g"d" g"d" ) C (g"e" g"e" g"e" g") (repeat) G C G C You say you want a diamond on a ring of gold G C G C You say you want your story to remain untold Em C Em C CHORUS: All the promises we've made, from the cradle to the grave G C G (into intro riff) When all I want is you You say you'll give me a highway with no one on it Treasure just to look upon it, all the riches in the night You say you'll give me eyes on a moon of blindness A river in a time of dryness, a harbor in the tempest CHORUS BRIDGE: All I want is you (falsetto, over intro riff) You way you want our love to work out right To last with me through the night And you say you want a diamond on a ring of gold Your story to remain untold, your love not to grow cold CHORUS: But all the promises we break... BRIDGE to fade
