11 O'Clock Tick Tock Live Solos

Anyone know the tab for these?

I've seen partial tabs, but never full tabs for both solos.

You're in luck. This is one of may all time favorite songs and for ten years I tried to nail it right. Then I discovered internet tabs. There was this guy, Richard Zangoli, who did a pretty good version on the now defunct U2 guitar archive, but his was still incomplete. So here's what I improved on it. I've also added how you can play different versions.

Intro
Palm mute...........................

E--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--------------------------


I play the main riff like this:

E-----------------------------------7-------------------------------------
B--------------------------------------8--8--7--7--8--8--7--7--8--7--8----
G-9--9--7--7--9--9--7--7--9--7--9----9--9--7--7--9--9--7--7--9--7--9----
D-9--9--7--7--9--9--7--7--9--7--9--------------------------------------7-- x2
A-----------------------------------------------------------------------
E-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Play this while Bono sings

During the second verse end like this instead off the slides

E--------15-----------17--14---

Over the I hear the children crying part (pre-chorus riff)

Richard came up with this variation, which get's used more often during later tours. For later
tours start with this first, then play as above second.

You can improvise from here if you're playing the Elevation version, if not, continue.

Play this part twice, ad lib the 2nd time. On the UABS record this part is only played once though, as it was during the UF tour. This part is also where the improvisation ends for Elevation versions and Bono starts singing Call out your name

E-7--7-\5-5--5-5-----5-5-5---5-5-5--5-5-5-----5-5-5---------------------
B-10-10\8-8--8-7--7--8-7-5---8-7-5--8-7-5--7--8-7-5---------------------

On some 1st leg October versions the second solo is played twice. The song was played once during the Joshua tree and twice during Lovetown, with each time the call out your name/harmonics part omited, with Edge combining both solos into one. For Elevation Edge plays the beginning and tbe end of the solo, but in between he improvises. Not one version is the same.
