And that's about it. Comments please! Isaac iclee@ucdavis Date: Mon, 23 Oct 1995 00:07:46 -0400 From: mpowell@vt.edu (Matt) Intro to Running to Stand Still by U2 A few notes: There is more than one guitar playing but I stuck most all of it on one line. There are some ragged background bits I left out. If you want you can play those bends on the A string to go easier on your fingertips. The slide-bends are smoothed out so it sounds like a full bend. Most importantly, the whole song is a 1/2 step up. ^ trill / bend up till it sounds right x pick scrape
e---------------------------------3^-----------------------------------------b------------------------------------3^--------------------------------------g--x/12-----------/----------0)-------------/--7--------/\---------/\------/-d--x/12--0----0--3----(0--0-------------0--3------0--3s5--5s3--0--3----0--3--a----------------------------------------------------------------------------e---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ^listen carefully ^synth comes for this. in here (D).
Oh incidentally, the little transition between chords is this:
e---------- The reason it's so high up the frets is that it's done with b------10-- the keyboard, which is playing the equivalent of E-barre D'sg--11------ and G's at the 10th and 3rd frets, respectively.
The chords can be found in joshua_tree.tab. They were done by Jacob Mattison (jacob@cs.swarthmore.edu), who I don't know personally but I think he's a cool guy that should get credit for his work. Corrections and comments welcome. Matt Powell mpowell@vt.edu --=====================_814431727==_--
