I like playing Until The End Of The World too. You can pretty much go wild at the end there.

At the moment, I've been having alot of fun playing Electrical Storm.

I'm officially jealous of you electric guitar players. Oh I will own one someday and chiming in on Until the end of the World, BBS, Mysterious Ways and Even better than the Real Thing, all of which I imagine to incredibly fun to play.

Until then I'd have to say the acoustic "Stay" from Boston, it's a nice melody that's challenging to get just right every time.

UTEOTW is fun but the solo always gets me


THE FLY!! ahh so much fun, especially if you get the effects for the solo right



Bad is great to play, especially with the backing track



In a Little While is really fun. OnFire, you should definitely learn the Boson version of this song, it's awesome on acoustic



Stay is great except for that one damn chord thats like

|0
|0
|1
|2
|x
|4

i always mess that chord up at least once



One Tree Hill is great, especially the solo at the end!



I WILL FOLLOW!! easy and alot of fun and sound great with the backing track



11 O'Clock Tick Tock!! ahhh!! ton of fun with the backing track, 2 part solo! yeah!



Streets is easy and fun, but you need the backing track! sounds great

I really love playing the intro to A Sort of Homecoming - I don't have an effect which gives Edge that awesome shimmer in the live shows but I do get pretty good sounds out of my delay unit and chorus with some reverb thrown in.

Other songs I enjoy playing are Streets, The Fly, Sunday Bloody Sunday, and Still Haven't Found. If you want to get close to Edge's sound you'll need a good delay unit, Overdrive, a decent amp, Herdim picks and lots of patience and persistence.

It's a sort of a constant rally the rhythm part, pretty tricky, i can't master it yet and it's quite a strain on your wrist, so have breaks in between before carrying on or you'll cause yourself Repetitive Strain Injury.
Listen carefully how consistently he plays it.

|---10--------------10----10--------------10--|
|------12--11--12------------12--11-12-----| and just repeat

actually, mysterious ways is 5 chords and a slide solo and i suck at using slides so i dont use it. a good flange pedal and about 450 ms delay will work ok with Mysterious Ways.

Mysterious ways sounds cool with WAHWAH and some distortion...but the slide solo is tricky indeed.....sliding is always a tricky thing for me.....just can't get it right........But I also use just 4 chords for the song
