you've come to the right place


basically its these 5 power chords. I didn't put the strumming pattern down, but you can get that pretty easily by listening to the song. this is for the live versions, in the key of D.


Code:

e|-----------------------------|
b|-----------------------------|
g|-----------------------------|
d|--19--19--19--17--15--14--12-|
a|--x---x---x---x---x---x---x--|
E|--17--17--17--15--13--12--10-|

i always thought it was more similar to something like this:

----------------------------------------------------------------------
-15--15-15-15---13-12-13--12---10----10--10---------------------------
-14--14-14-14---12-11-10--9----7-----7---7----------------------------
-12--12-12-12---10-9--10--9----7-----7---7----------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Apparently there are two guitars
This isn't exactly the rhythm i'm just giving the notes basic idea

Code:
----------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------
-14-14-14-14-12-x-x-10--x-x-9-x-x-7-x-x--------
----------------------------------------------------------
-12-12-12-12-10-x-x--8---x-x-7-x-x-5-x-x-------
The second guitar is playing the same thing but on higher strings
Sometimes I include the middle string too cos it's sounds fuller and it's easier to play than that

but obviously in live performances Edge alters it

Geeze, muting that middle string is a pain for me, Edge was a real fan of that during Achtung Baby

if you play the E string with your index and the other string with your ring finger, then the index will 'automatically' mute the other string
