U2 – Stay Faraway So Close Glastonbury 2011 chords
As performed at Glastonbury 2011, acoustically by The Edge backing and harmonising with Bono. Performance notes ================= A slightly different take on a wonderful song. Note the top two strings ring the whole time, giving that plangent, ethereal feel. Standard tuning but detuned half a step - Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb NB the chords are named according to the fingering below - but as the guitar is detuned, E is actually an Eb!
