Bad - solo
 
Bad is just one of the best, and easiest songs to play, but the sound of that solo is just a nightmare for me. Sure I can play it but I just can’t get that sound. I’m using a DD-3 with delay set at one or two repeats, level is about 75% and 420ms and a little distortion from the amp. Does anyone know what effects are used or, maybe my tabs a little off: (IBoth sound pretty similar):

Any help would be great.

What you mean this?

g-----18----18----18----18---18----15----15----15

Just play the bass note then the two high notes and repeat. For Bad i usually have my delay around 450 ms.

OK I thought I'd answer my own question, now that I've figured it and can paly it.

Delay is 440 to 450ms with 4 fading repeats.

The key is to play it "backwards" to the way you hear it. This is because of the delay.

its funny you beat me to it. BAD is one of the easiest Edge solo ever. all your doing is letting the delay do the work for you. its really the timing and working with the delay on this one. i was just going to post the exact same thing only i dont play the 4 string open.

I know what you mean about it being easy, but to get it to sound just right took a fair bit of practice for me. Personally I think the open strings make it sound fuller and helps me keep in time.
