Zooropa guitar tab

Zooropa

Music by U2 
Lyrics by Bono
Transcribed by Brandon Leniart 

Tune down 1/2 step.  The beginning piano chords are Gm and Em.  You can play 
the power chords in the major and minors if you want, but I like to play 
major/minor chords when the song speeds up to make it sound more 
interesting--I hope my tabs are readable. For the most part it's in E major.

Intro (with wah, phaser, and delay):

Don't worry baby, it'll be alright

Take your head out of the mud, baby, put flowers in the mud, baby, overground
No particular place names, no particular song
I've been hiding...what am I hiding from?
Don't worry baby, it'll be alright
Uncertainy can be a guiding light
I hear voices, rediculous voices, in the slipstream
                   F#m                                             E
Let's go, let's go overground, take your head out of the mud baby
               F#m      
She's going to dream up the world she wants to live in
            E
She's gonna dream out loud, dream out loud

Zooropa by U2(additions)


Transcribed by Richard Zangoli.
Well I just got myself a wah-wah and got very excited when I played this
song. I don't know exactly what effect Edge uses but you can get close to it
if you use a delay pedal(I set mine at around 400ms) and constantly keep
peddling a wah-wah. I used the transcription on the Net for some guidance
these are some additional suggestions. Note that the tab here (as in the
previous transcription) is half a step (one note) lower than the 
CD version. It makes playing open chords for the second half of the song
possible and thus simplifies things a little.

Intro Riff-

E-----------------------------------------------------------------------
B------------------------10-10-10-10---------------------------------   play  
G------x-x-7-7-7-7------------------------x-x-7-7-7-7----------------    this a
D---------------------------------------------------------------7-7-7-7-couple
                                                                            of 
It then goes to (something like)-                                          times
E------------------------                  E------------------------------
B---13--12---10h12p10--10--8h10-10  x2     B--8--7---5h7p5--5---3h-5--5- X2
G-------------------------------           G-----------------------------
D-------------------------------           D---------------------------- 

You might want to play around with this ^ a bit until you get something that
you think might be closer to the CD or sound better. But I think that the
above is reasonably close. 

The chords given in the previous transcription for the intro verses (ie D D
Em C Em C) sound right but you might want to play the bar chords at the 5th,
7th and 8th frets as they seems to sound closer to the CD. Play the chords a
couple of times each but make sure to let the delay do most of the work.
The chords for the second half of the song (D D4 D D9, Em C) also sound good
but on the CD there is also a guitar that goes something like-
E------------10--------
B---s/10-----------10--
G-----------------------
D-----------------------
This sounds good if it is played after the D9 chord. Have a listen to the CD
to hear it. But if you are using a wah-wah it sound better if you don't
peddle it when playing the riff.
So there you go. Have fun.
