What's you favourite U2 song to play?

Just out of interest.

I like strumming (and attempting to sing) along to Stuck in a moment. Sunday Bloody Sundays damn fun to bash out too

Well since I just learned Beautiful Day and have been playing that everyday for the past week I'd make that my current favorite song to play. Breathe, The Fly, and UTEOTW are all really fun too. Still learning more songs as I go. Out of Control seems incredibly fun as well and I've enjoyed playing Twilight. Edge's guitar parts on Boy are all really good, fun parts to play.

on the acoustic probably 'stay'

on the eguitar 'unknown caller' at the moment, i just love to kick that solo. songs i like to skip through and play fragments of every time i plug in the guitar are definitely 'one', 'bad', and 'electric co.'

I play piano, so my favorite song is October. Not hard to play at all, but it still sounds very beautiful.

As far as just strumming open chords, All I Want Is You is very easy and fun to work out on acoustic guitar. Desire, as well.

But for riffs, I've always loved playing the main riffs to Sunday Bloody Sunday, Vertigo, and Bad. And the bass lines to New Year's Day and WOWY are cool and easy, too.

I'd have to go with UV or the Fly, both of which are very fun songs to play.

I started with "Running to Stand Still" and love to play it. I also found some love with the version of "Electric Co" on the concert DVD - Edge rocks out...what fun.

"Bad" and "Forty" are two other favorites...along with "Mysterious Ways".

"Unknown Caller" has become my favorite from the new album.

If I were able to play guitar - Beautiful Day.

On the bass, I can only do real easy stuff. But when I play With or Without You, like, the easiest song, I can actually hear it hummin in my head. So I definitely love that.

New Years Day on the bass for sure.....when I warm up to play, I put that out there.....and everyone's ears perk up.

Damn lol if I could play NYD on bass, easily the most fun. I'm actually sitting down with it right now learning Streets. These tabs are easy, but at the same time certain points... they dont sound like Streets at all.

If you're speaking album version, I tabbed that out with my music teacher a while ago. It should be 100% accurate.
Where The Streets Have No Name bass tab (ver 3) by U2 @ Ultimate-Guitar.Com

NYD is worth learning, it's really fun to play.
