Electrical Storm Tab

my band plays this song, but a little faster than the original version. and the outro, our guitarist plays about a 2 minute solo while i sing "and i must be an acrobat, to talk like this, and act like that!" it works really well.

here's the tab:

Song: Electrical Storm (William Orbit Mix)
Artist: U2
Album: Best of 1990-2000
Transcribed by Ango Frederiksen

I couldn't tab all of what G2 (guitar 2) plays, cuz I didn't have my guitar with me,
so I hope everyone out there can plays the song out from this..

Verse 1 (N.C.)
The sea is swells like a sore head
and the night it is aching
Two lovers lie with no sheets on their bed
and the day it is breaking

On rainy days we go swimming out
on rainy days, swimming in the sound
On rainy days we go swimming out

Pre-chorus:
G1
|--2---------------|
|--2---2----0---4--|
|--2---2----1---4--|
|--4---2----2---4--|
|--4---0----2---2--|
|--2--------0------|
You're in my mind all of the time
I know that's not enough
if the sky can crack
there must be some way back
for love and only love

Chorus:
G1
|--2---------------|
|--2---2----0---4--|
|--2---2----1---4--|
|--4---2----2---4--|

Car alarm and back to sleep
you kept awake dreaming some else's dream
coffee is cold, but it will get you through
compromise, there's nothing new to you
let's see colours that have never been seen
let's go to places no one else has been

Pre-Chorus:
G1
|---------------------|
|--7---0---2---5---7--|
|--7---1---2---6---7--|
|--7---2---2---6---7--|
|--5---2---0---4---5--|

You're in my mind all of the time
I know that's not enough
if the sky can crack
there must be some way back
to love and only love

Chorus: End Chorus with
G1

It's hot as hell, honey in this room
sure hope the weather will break soon
the air is heavy, heavy as a truck
hope the rain will wash away our bad luck

Lyrics and tabs are both about the music, and both are their own forums - both are dedicated to specific topics.

It's A Musical Journey
Discussion of song lyrics and interpretations. Check out the U2 Lyrics Archives for the most comprehensive set of U2 lyrics on the 'net

Guitar Tabs
This forum is dedicated to discussing U2 guitar and bass tabs. Request a tab or show us how you play it.


As far as EYKIW, it's a general discussion area for U2....

Everything You Know Is Wrong
This is the general discussion area, primarily to be used for reactions and thoughts about U2.


Does that answer your question?

Oh thank goodness. I thought I'd honestly been visiting Interland for nearly three years without ever noticing it. I know I can be unobservant, but that's just ridiculous.

i use moderate delay and clean during the verses, and then heavy distortion and a little touch of flanger during the chorus and outro, while our lead guitarist uses a lot of wah pedal during the outro, "while he does his thing"(that's what we always say about him, lol).
