Window On The Sky

So the chords I've seen for this one aren't quite right. Here's what I came up with. I think this gets the feel of the song pretty well.

Verse:

I don't know the names of these chords but they're basically the bass note with the top of a G chord.

3x033
1xx033 or maybe xx3033
022033
x30033

022033
xx0233
x30033
G
Am

Chorus:

G,D,Am
G,D,Am
G,D,C,Em,D

Bridge

F#m, B
F#m, B, C

You should be able to figure out the rest from there

Could someone elaborate on the 6/8 Bono talks so much about?

Thank you very much!

The rhythm is very frustrating!

I missed a 0 in that first chord. It should be 3x0033. Just a G chord.

The first number is notes per measure (6 notes)
The second number is the type of note (using 8th notes)

so
an 8th note counted 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 every measure

or more simply:

1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3 every measure

I don't play guitar, but I saw this earlier when doing a search for something. Don't know if it's of any help

Thanks for the link but those chords are way off & the lyrics aren't correct either.

I fiddled around with it last night & came up with this:
Verse: Em D C G
Then Hangs on A or A7 before Going Into Chorus
Chorus: G D Am (C D)

I haven't played along with it yet to hear if it's correct so take these chords with a pinch of salt.

Tap your foot in time to the song, you should notice a two-tap pulse. Now, in the first pulse, count 1,2,3 and in the second 4,5,6. That's essentially what 6/8 time is.

The chords are really pissing me off - had to break out the MIDI sequencer and try some note combinations on piano....

Code:
    G              Bdim
The shackles are undone 
    Bdim	     Em
The bullets quit the gun 
    Em	              C
The heat thats in the sun 
       C                  Em
Will keep us when there's none 

    Em		     Bdim
The rule has been disproved
    Bdim	   ?	
The stone has been moved 
    ?		   ?
The grain is now a groove 
    ?	         Am
All debts are removed, ooh
Help me out here with the second part :P

Okay, I tried some stuff out, heres what i got.

Verse "Shackles are undone..." part:

XX5X8X XX5X8X
XX3X6X XX3X6X
XX2X5X XX2X5X
X3X5XX X3X5XX

Maybe without the bass notes? Sounds good to me though.

Second part of the verse - i have no idea what was cracking

Chorus:

These chords should be played arpeggio style

355433
X5777X
577555

355433
X5777X
577555
then this bit XX777X

Verse - Same as previous

Chorus - Same

Then the bridge - after the XX777X bit, do this:

244222
X2444X

244222
X2444X

X32010
followed by this solo that Edge plays:

E ---
B ---
G ---
D -----------5 3 2------2
A --- -----2--------5 3---5 3 2 5 3 2
E --- 3 5--------------------------------5 3
repeat again, then back to the chorus.

Let the hammering commence!

This is just a basic chord version.
The chords themselves will likely end up variants, but you can play it this way, it doesn't sound bad. I'll try and come up with the actual chords if they are different from what has aready been posted? Just trying to add something....

For instance, the intro appears to be something like:
G F9 E7sus C, that's a pain in the ass to decipher at this late hour. Anyhow, basic......

intro
G-F-Em-C
then sing

G
shackles are undone
F
bullets quit the gun
Em
heat that's in the sun
C
will keep us when there's none
Em
rule has been disproved
D
stone it has been moved
C
grain is now a groove
G
all debts are removed......
(into the pre-chorus)
Am

chorus
G D Am
G D Am
G D Am C D

second section of verses and chorus follow suit, then bridge:

Fm Bmaj /ooh oooh
C /please dont ever...

solo:
G F Em C
G F C Am

Bono sounding pitiful (same as chorus):
G D Am
G D Am
G D Am C D

the final verses are the same pattern as the chorus
G D Am
G D Am
G D Am C D

outro
G-F-Em-C


I'm going to hash out the melodics and shit and see if I can find variations on the basic premise of this song's chords.

Am I right in thinking 6/8 is basically a sped up waltz (3/4 speed)?

Did everything but murder but you and I
G D Am
But love left a window in the skies
G C Am
And to love I rhapsodize
G D Am
Oh can't you see what love has done
(to every broken heart)
G D Am
Oh can't you see what love has done
for every heart that cries
G D Am
love left a window in the skies
G D Am
and to love I rhapsodize
D
Oh can't you see

(keep playing G until end)

I think this is closer

Verse

G 320033
Cadd9 x32033
Em7 022033
C 335553

Chorus

G D Am

Middle 8

F#M B


The verse definitely finishes on a C, not D
