Ultraviolet (Light My Way), by U2, from "Achtung Baby"

This is my tab for Ultraviolet, and it seems to be close to right. It
is similar to the other tabs on here for it. Corrections are welcome.

*Note, use delay pedal, set to about .4 seconds delay

CHORDS USED:
E x 7 9 9 9 x
A* x 7 7 9 10 x
D x x x 7 10 10
D* x x x 7 10 9
C#m x 4 6 6 5 4
B x 2 4 4 4 2
A x 0 2 2 2 0
Asus4 x 0 2 2 3 x

OPENING RIFF(right after Bono sings "...and lovin' won't be long..."):
E A* D D*
e-x- -x- -10- -9-
b-9- -10- -10- -10-
g-9- -9- -7- -7-
d-9- -7- -x- -x-
a-7- -7- -x- -x-
e-x- -x- -x- -x-

This progression leads into the verse:

E A*
Oh sugar, don't you cry
D D*
Oh child wipe the tears from your eyes
E A
You know I need you to be strong
D D*
When the day is dark as the night is long


C#m B
Feel like trash, you make me feel clean
A Asus4 A
I'm in the black can't see or be seen
C#m B A Asus4 A
Baby, Baby, Baby, Light my way...
(repeat this pattern for the rest of the verse)

Verse2 - same chords as Verse 1
** note: during part of verse 2 where Bono sings "I guess that's the
price of love, I know it's not cheap...", add this little fill on
the guitar instead of playing the C#m, B, A, and Asus4 chords:

e--------------------------
b--------------------------
g--8-9-6---8-9-6---8-9-6--- (listen to get timing down)

BRIDGE:
e-------------------------------------
b-9-10-9-10-9-10-9-10-10-9------------ Repeat thru bridge
g-9-9--9-9--9-9--9-9--9--9------------
d-9-9--9-9--9-9--9-9--9--9------------

After Bono sings "Baby, baby, baby, light my way...,"
Add this little fill, which Edge used in concert:

e-0--0---0-------0-------0----------------------
b-0--0-----0-------0-----2----------------------
g-1--1-------1-------1---2----------------------
d-2--2-------------------2----------------------
a-2--2-------------------0----------------------
e-0--0------------------------5--4-5-4-5-4-0----

**note, this is played right before "I remember when we could sleep..."

For the rest of the song, just repeat the same chords for the verse
and use that little 8-9-6 fill for the end of the song. That's about
it.

Ultra Violet (Light My Way) by U2.

Transcribed by Javier Cayuela.
e-mail: p0423@albeniz.eui.upm.es


I saw Sergio's TAB at Nevada and it's okay, but it's not the way the Edge
plays it live. Here's my version:



Riff 1 is the main riff played during the first two verses:


(E*) (A9*) (D*) (A4*)
E|------X-----------X----------X----X-------|
B|-----12----------12---------15---14-------|
G|-----13----------14---------14---14-------|
D|-----14----------14---------12---12-------|
A|------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|




Riff 2 is played during the pre-chorus. This might not be the exact timming,
but it's easy to figure it out if you listen to the song.

\ means to slide down and / means to slide up.

Be careful when playing the A5 position, because your index finger is also on
the 3rd string and this one isn't involved in the slides.



Riff 2

E5
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----17-17-17-17-17-----17-17-17-17-17-----17-17-17-----17-17-17-17-------|
G|----16-16-16-16-16-----16-16-16-16-16-----16-16-16-----16-16-16-16-------|
D|----14-14-14-14\13-/14-14-14-14-14\13-/14-14-14\13-/14-14-14-14-14-------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|


A5
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----17-17-17-17-17-----17-17-17-17-17-----17-17-17-----17-17-17-17-------|
G|----14-14-14-14-14-----14-14-14-14-14-----14-14-14-----14-14-14-14-------|
D|----14-14-14-14\13-/14-14-14-14-14\13-/14-14-14\13-/14-14-14-14-14-------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|




Riff 3 is played during the chorus. Bono sings "Oooh, oooh...", while the Edge
sings "Ultra violet... Ultra violet...":

E B

E|----12-----12-----12-----12-----12------------12\11----------------------|
B|-----9-h10p-9-h10p-9-h10p-9-h10p-9-h10p9---------------------------------|
G|-----9------9------9------9------9----------11---------------------------|
D|-----9------9------9------9------9-----------9---------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|


C#m A

E|-----9------9------9------9------9------------------12-------------------|
B|-----9-h10p-9-h10p-9-h10p-9-h10p-9-h10p----------------10----------------|
G|-----9------9------9------9------9----------------9-------9--------------|
D|----11-----11-----11-----11-----11-------------11------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------0---------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|



Finally, Riff 4 is played during the third verse instead of Riff 1:

E|------------------------------------------------------10p9---------------|
B|----12p9----9----------12p9----9-----------12p10-9h10------12-10---------|
G|---------11---9-------------11---9---------------------------------------|
D|--9------------------9-------------------9-------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|



That's it!. Now let's see it all together:


(Intro. This goes with keyboards and a pre-recorded guitar. At the end, Edge
plays Fill 1.)


E
Sometimes I feel like I don't know Fill 1
E G#m E|----------------------|
Sometimes I feel like checking out B|----------------------|
Dbm G|----------------------|
I wanna get it wrong D|----------------------|
F# A|-1---3--/4----/8------|
Can't always be strong E|----------------------|
Fill 1
And love it won't be long






Riff 1 twice


Verse 1 (Riff 1)
-------

E*
Oh sugar, don't you cry,
A9* D* A4*
Oh child wipe the tears from your eyes
E*
You know I need you to be strong,
A9* D* A4*
And the day is as dark as the night is long



Pre-chorus (Riff 2)
----------

E5
Feel like trash, you make me feel clean
A5
I'm in the black, can't see or be seen
E5
Baby Baby Baby, light my way
A5
Baby Baby Baby, light my way


(Verse 2: Riff 1, just the like verse 1)

You bury your treasure where it can't be found
But your love is like a secret that's been passed around
There is a silence that comes to a house where no one can sleep

(Pre-chorus: Riff 2)

I guess it's the price of love, I know it's not cheap
Oh come on, Baby Baby Baby, light my way
Oh come on, Baby Baby Baby, light my way


(Chorus: Riff 3)

E B C#m A
Oooh, ooh Ultra violeeeet
E B
Ultra violeeeet
C#m A E5(from Riff 2)
Ultra violeeeet Ultra violeeeet Fill 2
(Bono-->) Baby Baby Baby, light my way


Fill 2
------

E A2

E|--0-------0-------0----------------------------|
B|--0---------0-----0----------------------------|
G|--1-----------1---2-------2p1h2-1--------------|
D|--2---------------2----------------2/----------| --> slide up to riff 4
A|--2---------------0----------------------------|
E|--0---------------0----------------------------|
let ring let ring



(Verse 3: Riff 4)

I remember when we could sleep on stones
Now we lie together in whispers and in moans
When I was all messed up, and I heard opera in my head

(Pre-chorus: Riff 2)

Your love was a light bulb hanging over my bed
Baby, Baby, Baby, light my way
Baby, Baby, Baby, light my way

Oooh, ooh
Ultra violet
Ultra violet
Ultra violet

Baby, Baby, Baby,
Baby, Baby, Baby
Baby, Baby, Baby, light my way




In some live versions (as in Achtung Baby) there's also a pre-recorded guitar
during the chorus:

E|----------------------|
B|--4h5--------4h5------|
G|------6----------6----|
D|----------------------|
A|----------------------|
E|----------------------|



Enjoy it!.

Any comment? (Some U2 tabs coming soon.!!!)

I'm in the black, can't see or be seen
Baby, baby, baby, light my way

But your love's like a secret that's been passed around
There is a silence that comes to a house where no one can sleep

P.S: My first impression was that this was the best track on the "Achtung Baby" album.
A year later I keep this one as my favourite just on top of the overrated "One".A
