U2 - Even Better Than The Real Thing tab

 I wasn't really satisfied by this song tabs available in the UG, none of them doesn't 
a correct chorus part. They're not even similar. Maybe some of you will not agree with me,
here is my version of the song:

Intro (with "wah" effects)

E|----------------------------|B|----------------------------|G|----------------------------| Repeat several timesD|--------7-7-----------7--7--|A|--0--0---------0--0---------|E|----------------------------|
In the studio version you can hear that there are two guitars played in the song. At the beginning the second guitar plays palm muted A and before bass and drums enters,A chord. It looks like this:
E|------------|-----------|------------|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|B|------------|-----------|------------|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|G|------------|-----------|------------|-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-|D|------------|-----------|------------|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-|A|------------|-----------|------------|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-|E|--5---5-5-5-|-5---5-5-5-|-5---5-5-5--|-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-|
