 > >with thumb...

A///D///A///D///  play a couple of times...then

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
