Until The End Of The World guitar chords

macphisto2000@hotmail.com  UNTIL THE END OF THE WORLD (LIVE)


All chords are with respect to the CAPO on the 3RD FRET.

OPENING

E------------------------------------------------
B- x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x---------------------

D- x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--------------------- the main rife

E--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0---------------------
*NOTE: the '2/-12-' part is a slide from the second fret to the 12th

Edge plays this with alot of overdrive and as far as I've heard it's only played using the PA

MAIN RIFF: 

E-----------------------------------
B-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-10-10-10-9--
G-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9--9--9--9-- Repeat this 4 times, then play

VERSE 1: Pick Bm, D, and Em chords apperegio (With respect to the capo)


Bm(024430)               D(057770)
Haven't seen you in quite a while
Em(079980)
I was down the hole just passing by  (...and so on...)




As Bono sing 'passing by':

E----------------------------
B----------10--10--8--8--10--
G----------------------------
D----------------------------
A----------------------------
E----------------------------


PRE-CHORUS: (slightly different style here)
D                        A

Em                  G       
Everybody havin' a good time
D           A
Except you, you were talking about the end of the world


Again it is in apperegio (With respect to the capo) as follows:

NOW RETURN TO THE MAIN RIFF:

E-----------------------------------
B-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-10-10-10-9--
G-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9--9--9--9-- Repeat this 4 times, then play 
D-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9--9--9--9-- next part to lead into verse:
A-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--7--7--7--
E-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--0--0--0--

B------------
G-9-9-7-7-5-5
D-x-x-x-x-x-x  (mute the "D" string)
A-7-7-5-5-7-7
E------------


SOLO: A Very simple typical Edge type Solo. This one becomes very simple when you see the Edge play it on the Sau Paulo Popmart Bootleg Video. Note: I will only Tab the B string since it is all played on this string but where I mark XXX Strike the A + D strings open (with respect to the capo) and leave them to ring. The symbol / means gliss sharply and b means bend the string up to the note shown. h means hammer on


B--15--15--17--15--14--14h15--12--12--12 / 10 / 8 / 7 / 5 / 3--3h5-XXX-3-5--5b7--5--3-5


Repeat this again and then:


B--/8/6/7(Vibrato)      (x2)


B--/7/8/7---5--3--3h5--XXX-- 3--5--5--XXX--3--5


B--/8/6/7(Vibrato)--/8/6/7(Vibrato)--7/10--10-- 


Again this is open to improvisation especially with the use of the A and D strings. Edge never plays it the same anyway so there is lots of room for manipulation, but remember the glisses must be fast and sharp to get the desired effect.


POST-SOLO:
After the solo, play the MAIN RIFF and the riff from Verse 2 again: 

E-----------------------------------
B-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-10-10-10-9--
G-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9--9--9--9-- Repeat this 4 times, then play 
D-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9--9--9--9-- next part to lead into verse:
A-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--7--7--7--
E-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--0--0--0--

B------------
G-9-9-7-7-5-5

G-4-4-...4-4-4-6-6/7-7-...7-9-9/11-11-11-9-9-9-7-9-9/11-11-11-9-9-7-9-
D-x-x-...x-x-x-x-x-x-x-...x-x-x--x--x--x-x-x-x-x-x-x--x--x--x-x-x-x-x-

A---------------------------------------------------------------------

LAST VERSE:
The edge uses some Harmonics:

E----------------------------------------------

G----7------7--------7---7------- Repeat Twice-
D--7------7------------7---7-------------------
A----------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------


Now return to the PRE-CHORUS RIFF:

END SOLO 
For the ending solo, you need to keep the low, open E going (or sustained)
while playing the solo. The solo is simply a variation of the power Em chord.  
 
              Em              Em               Em

When Bono sings "La la la la...." and so on... play the following power chords: 
      E                       A                D
E---------------------------------------------------------
B-9-9-9-109-9-9-10. -14-14-14-14-14-14-...7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-

E-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0...--------------------------------------



Repeat the above riff sereral times, then return to the MAIN RIFF, repeat it
a few times, and end the song:

E-----------------------------------
B-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-10-10-10-9--
G-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9--9--9--9-9--   
D-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9--9--9--9-9--  
A-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--7--7--7-7--
E-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--0--0--0-0--


Then finish with the top two strings ringing open

That is the complete version of the song as far as I can make out. I've seen a load of videos and I was right under the edge at one of the popmart shows for alot of the song so I think I`m pretty correct. The Sau Paulo Video gives the Solo away. But remember all notes, harmonics and chords above are with respect to the capo on the 3rd fret



Until The End Of The World

Haven't seen you in quite a while
I was down the hold, just passing time
Last time we met it was a low-lit room
We were as close together as a bride and groom
You ate my food, you drank my wine
Everybody having a good time
Except me
I was talking about the end of the world

You took the money, You spiked my drink
You miss too much these days if you stop to think
You led me on with those innocent eyes
And you know I love the element of surprise
In the garden you were playing the tart
You kissed my lips and broke my heart
And I
I was acting like it was the end of the world

In my dream I was drowning my sorrows
But my sorrows they learned to swim
Surrounding me, going down on me
Spilling over the brim
In waves of Regret, waves of joy
I reached out to the one I tried to destroy
You, you said you'd wait until the end of the world.

Well, I have read many ways to play this, but I figured it out on my own,
and it is one my favorites tp play.  This is my highly simplified tab for
the song.  The song is very basic in nature.  You just have to practice to
get it right.  As for the solo, you are on your own.  I can play something
close to it, but not exactly.  Anyway, here is my tab:
-------------------------------------------------------------------
"Until the End of the World" (Live, by U2)
tabbed by Matt Stewart (mps133@psu.edu)

PLAY THIS SONG WITH A CAPO ON THE 3RD FRET, TUNE DOWN THE GUITAR 1/2 STEP

Use delay, set to about 400 ms, and use some chorus, a compressor, and some
overdrive.  

***NOTE: All chords are with respect to the CAPO on the 3RD FRET.

OPENING
For the opening, we hear that little distorted guitar over the loud speaker,
and the Edge rips in with his heavily muted riff.  My suggestion for playing
it is muting the power E chord while letting the low E on your guitar ring,
and then sliding up to get Edge's riff:
   *strum while muting*

b-(9)-x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x---------------------

e--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0---------------------
*NOTE: the '2/-12-' part is a slide from the 2nd fret to the 12th

END SOLO (This I do have, it's not too hard).
For the ending solo, you need to keep the low, open E going (or sustained)
while playing the solo.  It makes for a fuller sound.  The solo is simply a
variation of the power Em chord.  Here it is:
               Em              Em               Em

Until The End Of The World (live)

Music by U2
Lyrics by Bono
Transcribed by Brandon Leniart 

Here is a very simplistic version of "Until The End Of The World" live, 
tuned down 1/2 step. I finally realized Edge is a pretty smart for putting a 
capo on the 3rd fret, and playing it like he did on the studio version.  He 
plays the same chords, just 1/2 step down with a capo on the 3rd fret. I'll 
also give the chords if you don't have a capo.  

Intro (with distortion and delay):
1---x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x-------
2---x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--/12--
3---x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--/12--
4---x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--/12--
5---x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x-------
6---x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x-------

Intro/chorus:
2---12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--13--13--13--13--
3---12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--
4---12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--

Verse chords (with capo on 3rd fret):  Bm   D   Em

Pre-chorus chords:  D   A   Em   G5   D/F#    D   A

Solo:

2---18--18--18--17--15--15--15--15\13--13\11--11\10--10\8--

2---8--6--6h8--8--8--8--6--8--8b10--8--6--8--  (twice)

2---11p10p8--10--10--10--10--10--11p10p8--10--10--10--10--

2---11p10p8--8--6h8--8--8--8--6--6--8--8--11p10p8--10--10--10--11p10p8--10/

Here's the chords if you don't have a capo:

Verse:  Dm   F   Gm  

Prechorus:   F   C   Gm   Bb   F   C

Until the End of the World -Live 
-----------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Matt Means, LMJrBAE@aol.com

Tab guide:

B : string bend
/ : slide up
\ : slide down
^ : hammer on\pull off
~~ : vibrato


Standard tuning with capo on 4th fret 
( Note: for less confusion all open notes are indicated as 0 and not 4 )


Intro, with heavy funky distortion.( This probably won't sound much like it
unless you have the right effect ) 

[-------------------------------------------------------------------------]
[-0-5^0-5^0----11B----0-5^0-0----11B----0-5^0-0-------9B------/9-----/7---]
[-----------------------------------------------6-------------------------]
[-------------------------------------------------------------------------]
[-------------------------------------------------------------------------]
[-------------------------------------------------------------------------]

Next Edge does a nice muting rythm. ( just listen to the song )

Rythm figure 1 part A (Play 3X
[-----------------------------------------------------------]
[--11---12---11---12---11---11---11----11^12^11^12^11-------]
[--11---11---11---11---11---11---11----11-11-11-11-11-------]
[--11---11---11---11---11---11---11----11-11-11-11-11-------]
[--0-----9---11---10---0----0----0-----0^-9^-0^-9^-0--------]
[--0----10---0-----9---0----0----0-----0^10^-0^-10^0--------]

Rythm figure 1 part B ( instantly begin this after Part A) 
[--------------------------------------------]
[--------------------------------------------]
[----9-------9\7------7------7\6---6----6----]
[----9-------9\7------7------7\6---6----6----]
[----9-------9\7------7------7\6---6-- -6----]
[---10------10\8------8------8\7---7----7----]

Right after you hit the last cord for R1-B, jump into this great picking 
melody. (remember this is with a capo on 4th fret)

[-----------------I--------0---------I-------5--------8--6-6--8-]
[------------5----I-------------5----I------------7-------------]
[---6---------6---I---0-----------0--I---6----------------------]
[-------6---------I------------------I-0---0----0---0-----------]
[-0---0---0----0--I-6---6-----6------I--------------------------]

Repeat above figure again

[-------5--7--5--------------------------]
[----0------------0----6--6---7--7--9/---]
[-0-----------------------=--------------]
[----------------------------------------]
[----------------------------------------]

The last few notes above lead into rythm figure 1-A which is played 3X,
and then rythm figure 1-B. Next is Rythm figure 2, shown below. 

[-----I-Re1-----------------------------------------------------]
[-----I---------------------------------------------------------]

[--12---12/14--14--14---14\12---12---12\10--10---10/12--12/14---14---14--]


[------------IRe2--------------------]Now go back up to the Re1 sign and  
[------------I-----------------------]play through until you get to the
[--13\11--11-I-11\9---9---9/11--11---]Re2 sign, then through until you get  
[--13\11--11-I-11\9---9---9/11--11---]to the go to the picking figure below.
[--13\11--11-I-11\9---9---9/11--11---](note: at the end of Rythm figure two,   
[--14\12--12-I-12\10--10--10/12-12---]play  the last chord a few extra times)

[-----------------I-----------------I----------5---0----------]
[---5--7--5-------I----5--7--5------I-----7------5----5--7--5-]
[-0----------0----I-0-----------6---I---6---6-----------------]

[-0----------------0-----------------------]
[------------------------------------------]
[------------------------------------------]

Now play Rythm figure 1-A only. ( play 4 times, 4th time without the ending )

Next is a typically Edge-like solo. ( when the 4th and 5th strings are
played, damp them right away )

                                                                 ~~~

[----------------------------------------------------------------------]
[----------------------------------------------------------------------]
[----------------------------------------------------------------------]
[----------------------------------------------------------------------]

The last slide of the solo goes up to Rythm figure 1-A ( played 3X ),
then Rythm figure 1-B.  

Rythm figure 1-B then leads into Rythm figure 2.

After Rythm figure 2 come the harmonics shown below.

[-------------------16--------------------16--------------16--16--------]
[--------------16-------16--------------------16-------------------16---]
[---------16-----------------16----16-------------16--------------------]
[----16-----------------------------------------------------------------]
[-----------------------------------------------------------------------]
[-----------------------------------------------------------------------]

The above harmonics are repeated again and then lead into picking.


[--------------I------------I------------5---0-------0-]
[--5--7--5-----I---7--5-----I------7-------5----7--5---]
[----------0---I-0------6---I----6---6-----------------]

[--------------I------------I--------------------------]

                     ~~~~~~~~           
[------------------------------------]
[------5--7--5-----------------------]
[----0---------0---6-6--8-8--9/------]
[-0----------------------------------]
[------------------------------------]
[------------------------------------]

Next play rythm figure 1-A 4 times ( 4th time without ending )

Last is Edge's live outro jam.  With so much going on it was very hard 
to tab.  This is the best I can make of it.  Feel free to improvise.


                                               ~~~~~

             This is the vaguest part.  He seems topick and 
             play these chords and notes for maybe 10seconds. 
[------------------------I--12-----------12-----12-------------------]
[------------------------I--12-----------12-----12-------------------]

[----------------------0-I------0---0--------------------------------]

Here is the last part of the outro.  I'm pretty sure about this.

[--15--15---16--16---15---15---16----21---21---16----9----9-----9----]

This is a simplified version of the solo.  If I included every
single note it would have been to hard to read.  This will give
you the basis of the solo, and from here you can add what you
think is best, comments welcome.

But my sorrows they learned to swim
Surrounding me, going down on me
Spilling over the brim
Waves of regret, waves of joy
I reached out for the one I tried to destroy
You, you said you'd wait 'til the end of the world.

====================================================

Edge played harmonics on the big E string at the start for POPMART 
i.e.

E---<4>-<4>--<5>-<5>--<7>-<7>--2/-

remember there's capo on the 3rd fret so it's actually 7th 8th and 
10th frets (if you see what I mean).

For the Brit Awards performance, and I presume edges does this for 
the new tour he played higher pitched harmonics:

E---<3>-<3>--<4>-<4>--<5>-<5>--2/-

again theres a capo so its 6, 7, 8th fret really.

I think for the sound it's about 430ms delay, about 10% fb and about 
50% level with high cut also (say about 4khz if you can set that)
