U2 – Angel Of Harlem tab
Angel of Harlem - U2 submitted by Warren Black I am frustrated with the other versions of this song that are listed on the net so I would set it straight. The KEY to getting this song right is applying the CORRECT and & F chords. Tuning: Standard EBGDAE Chords: The F, G & Am chords during the breaks and choruss are played as per normal. the C & Fs during the intro & verses are played as such: the C is as per normal but with pinky finger on string 1, fret 3. The F in the verses is played, from the C shape by merely dropping fingers 2 & 3 (the two middle ones) one string down each, your and index figures stay where they are throughout all the C-F changes. Thus the change C to F and back to C again during the verses is done by merely moving fingers 2 & 3 up or one string each. Strum: In the verses the C is played two down-one up with a change into F which is down-up, down-up and then back into C again. Listen to the song intro and you will Try changing the strum pattern in the break & chorus for maximum effect It takes some practice to get right but when you do it sounds awesome!
