Hey, Im helping one of my friends learn Bass and they want to learn a U2 song. Anyone have any Ideas/Tabs of an easy Song?

Ive already taught them New Years Day though.


Thanks.

With Or Without You?

though if they already learned New Year's Day, they could do something harder than that then.

With or Without You is very easy for bass.

E --------10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10/5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5/7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7/3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--------

Vertigo is easy too, and it's the same all time.

A -------5-7-7-5-7-7-5-7---------------------
E -------------------------------5-5-5-5-4-3-3

The Beautiful Day verse riff I play like this:

G:---------------7-7-7-0-0-0-0-0-7-7-7-7-------
D:-7-7-7-9-9-9-----------------------------7-7-7-

Something like that. Do it over and over. Sunday Bloody Sunday, Trip Through Your Wires, and Elevation are easy too. Adam Clayton's bass is easy to learn, but still interesting to hear.

Yea Gloria is good, but it's tough for beginners. I've been playing for almost a year now and I still fumble on Gloria (or maybe Im doing something wrong, I dunno)

Well, i started off learning bass just by playing to U2 songs. Then i progressed onto other bands like Queen... world of difference. Gloria = 'an easy Queen song' imo.

I just tried out Desire... now I know why Adam's looking bored when they do that on Rattle & Hum

Never tried to type out tab before but here goes...

A:-5-------------
E:--5-0--5-0-5- etc...

then when he goes "With a red guitar"...

A:-5--5-5--5-5-5-
E:-------------------5--5-5--5-5-5-....

and back to the other bit.

Then just stroll around and smoke a cigarette or something

Regarding the Desire tab above, I just realised that it only works that way if you tune down half a step... Sorry if that confused anyone!

I just wish half the songs I'm trying to learn (NYD, Velvet Dress, Desire) weren't tuned down that way... it's kinda irritating for a newbie like me. Maybe my bass is cheap and nasty, but I don't like how slack the strings get when I tune it down (or maybe I need new strings?). I can work around it on NYD, but not on Desire.

</rant>

You dont always need to tune down, just play everything one fret to the right of what it should be. But sometimes it is easier to tune down... If you have old strings, getting new ones will really show a change and sound better.

Does anyone know the bass tabs for A Man and a Woman?
Ive tryed looking on different sites and they all seem to say ist against the law or something. I found one but it didnt sound anything like it.
So if anyone could post me the correct tabs for A man and a woman that'd be great!
Thanks
