U2 - New Years Day Live tab

Song:   New Year's Day (Live)
Artist: U2
Album:  U2 go Home - Live From Slane Castle, Ireland
Tabber: Andrew Marks

To be honest I cannot work out Edge's sound for this song.
I like to term the sound as 'Toxic'. I can say though that
Edge uses a hefty amount of reverb, and I think probably 
a little delay effect too.

Tune your guitar down 1/2 step.
