OUT OF CONTROL (LIVE)
---------------------
U2

tabbed by jules 

I tabbed this song from the version found on the b-side to
the Sweetest Thing CD single though other versions are similar.

Tune down half a step.

Here's the main Riff:
E------5--5----5-5---------5--5---5---5-----
B------5--7----7-7---------5--7-----7---7---
G---7--7--7----7-7------7--7--7-------------
D---0-------------------0-------------------
A-------------------------------------------
E-------------------------------------------


E---0-0-----0-----0-0--------<12>------
B--------0-------------<12>------------
G--------------------------------------
D--------------------------------------
A--------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------

Repeat the main riff a few times.

Play D5 and A chords for the verse
E------------------------------------------------------
B--3-3-3-3-3-3-3--------3-3/---2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2------2--
G--2-2-2-2-2-2-2--etc.--2-2/---2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-etc.-2--
D--0-0-0-0-0-0-0--------0------2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2------2--
A------------------------------0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0------0--
E------------------------------------------------------

D5
Monday morning 18 years are dawning

A
I say how long, I say how long  etc.

For the chorus play G5, A5 and B5 chords and arpeggiate
them to finish with.

G5                     A5
I had a feeling it has out of control

G5       A5
You say, out of control

G5      A5      G5       A5    B5    A5
Ohhhhh, ohhhhh, ohhh.... ohhh, ohhh, ohhh

  G5 A5 G5 A5  G5    A5     G5      A5     B5      A5
E----------------------------------------------------
B-8--10-8--10----8-----10-----8-------10-----12------
G-7--9--7--9-------7------9-----7--------9------11---
D-5--7--5--7---5----/7-----\5------/7-----/9-------7-
A----------------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------

That's basically the whole song except for the solo and
bridge:

E--12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12--14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14--
B--10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10--12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12--
G----------------------------------------------------
repeat

E------------------------10----10------------
B-10b(12)-10b(12)r-10-------10---------------
G-------------------------------------------
repeat

Then play the whole thing again.

Edge sometimes finished with this ending:

E--------------------------------------
B--10b(12)--12b(14)--14b(16)--15b(17)--
G--------------------------------------

After the solo Edge plays some palm muted notes for
the bridge (this was the hardest bit to figure out)...

B------------------------------<5>---------------
G----------------------------------<5>-----------
D-----------------------------------------etc.---
A--9-9-10-10-9-9--7-7-5-5------------------------
E------------------------------------------------

Carry on playing this type of thing.

Finish off the bridge with this when Bono starts
shouting 'Outta control...':
E--0--0---2--3--2--0--2--3--2------
B--2--2---3--3--3--3--3--3--3------
G--2--2---2--2--2--2--2--2--2------
D--2--2---0--0--0--0--0--0--0------
A--0--0----------------------------
E----------------------------------

Then it's back to the verse and chorus then finish
off with the main riff.

I watched a video from a concert in 1983 to help
work it out. E-mail me if you have any comments or
improvements.

Cheers,

jules.

		TRANSCRIBED BY: STEVE FORD AND PETER SCHENK


      Out of Control(solo) by U2
Transcribed by Richard Zangoli. 
I saw the transcription to this song on the archive and it was pretty good
but was without the solo. So here it is. It may not be 100% but it's close
and should give you plenty to work with. Tune down half a step.

E--12--12--12--12--12--12--12s/14--14--14--14--14--14--14--12--12--12--12--12--
B--10--10--10--10--10--10--10s/12--12--12--12--12--12--12--10--10--10--10--10-
G-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

E--12s/14--14--14--14--14--14--14s/---------------------------------------------
B--10s/12--12--12--12--12--12--12s/------------0----0----------15----------15---
G---------------------------------------------14b--14b-----14----------14-------

E--------------------------------
B----0----0-------------15------- play this twice but the second time change
the 
G---14b--14b----14-------------    ending to-

E-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B----0----0-----------------15---------15------------15--------------15-------15
G---14b--14b-------14------------14----------14b-----------14b------------14b--

That's it. And by the way I find that for the intro this sounds closer to
the album intro-

E----------5-----5----              E----------5--2-----
B----------5-----7---     than      B----------2--3-----
G----------------7----              G----2-------------    which was in the  
D----7---------------               D----0--------------   previous
A----5----------------              A-------------------    transcription
E-----------------------            E---------------------
