Easiest u2 song to learn?

Ok, so dusting off my guitar and relearning everything again.

What would be a good song to learn from u2? I really want to play Staring At The Sun - but not sure how difficult it is.

Just starting to learn how to read guitar tabs again!

Thanks for any help - i admit i don't know what im doing at all.

do you wanna play just chords, or?

the chords to staring at the sun are about as easy as chords can get.

yeah just chords. I have no lofty ideas of rocking out like the Edge, just something nice to strum along too

the only staring at the sun guitar music i could find was confusing. I want a picture to show where my fingers go! or at least tabs or something?

No pictures to show where your fingers go, but this is as easy as it gets otherwise.

Copy and paste the following URL into your address bar.

u2 helped me pretty much
all songs are not very hard so with a little practice i learned them most and now it's easier to learn harder songs from other bands

running to stand still acoustic is pretty straight foward. just 3 chords i think

once you can play barre chords vertigo is very easy

Desire is too fast... and All I Want is You is not easy (and need a delay effect for first part and overdrive to solo and second part). Try One, Angel of Harlem live version, Yahweh live version...

I found One very easy (probably because Fmaj7 I found easier than a barre chord F), and it sounds great on acoustic

if you don't have delay,practice your right arm to play fast and discontinued.
Edge has one of the best right arms in the world.

-all i want is you is pretty easy song and you need delay only if you're a perfectionist.
-sunday bloody sunday is also easy, the most complicated thing is solo which is moving up and down the fret on one string
-mothers of the disappeared is easy,all you have to do is learn it.
-desire was said
-all along the watchtower is three chords
-angel of harlem four chords(am-f-g-c and simple strumming)
-the first time acoustic is also easy,few chords(i didn't learn it cause i don't like the song)
-dirty day is great on acoustic(D-A-C-G all the time)
-staring at the sun and gone are 5-6 chords with few bass transitions
-stuck in a moment is easy,but you have to learn barre chords
-kite also(there's a B and C#m which are not too difficult)

next advice:
learn riffs from each song. you don't need to know every u2 song from begining to the end.
examples:
bad-even without a delay is easy
the fly-the easiest riff ever
i will follow, gloria, 40, discotheque, beautiful day, walk on, in a little while, new york...
you won't become something great if you learn fly riff,but at least your fingers will stretch and it will be easier for later learning.



haugh
